The words of the old hymn, How Firm a Foundation, have been running through my mind today. What a message to meditate on!
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord
Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word!
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?
This firm foundation begins way back in the beginning in Genesis 1. “In the beginning, God …” What a comfort it is to know that God was there in the beginning … and He will be there in the end. He has promised to never leave us or forsake us. We can trust His promise because His Word is sure … it is accurate and reliable from the very first verse.
No matter how many attacks are leveled at the Word of God, it stands firm. Skeptics may doubt it and mockers may scoff, but the Word of the Lord stands true. And for those of us who bow before the Lord and trust His Word, He again and again brings confirmation.
The so-called “proofs” of evolution fall to the ground under careful scrutiny. Paleontology has failed to produce the transitional forms – the “kinds” are distinct and the “missing links” are still missing.
Biology has failed to demonstrate the plausibility of origin of life from non-living chemicals, or to explain the origin of the vast amounts of complex, highly ordered genetic material by chance and natural processes.
Known scientific principles contradict naturalistic evolutionary scenarios, but fit beautifully with the Biblical account.
Again and again, true scientific research is affirming the truth of the Biblical record. To borrow a line from Dr. John Morris, President of the Institute for Creation Research, “It’s a great time to be a Bible-believing Christian and young earth creationist.”
And if we can trust what the Word says about the beginning, we can also trust what it says about the end. In a world full of turmoil, confusion, fighting, and pain, we can have confidence in our God and in the hope He offers through faith in Jesus Christ. Truly, we have a “firm foundation” in the Word of God!
