Psalm 33:6 (ESV)
By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
and by the breath of his mouth all their host.
Have you ever wished you’d been there to see God create the world? I mean, how amazing would it have been to see how He did it all?
It would’ve been breathtaking and overwhelming. Why? Because when God said, “Let there be light!” there wasn’t just the flick of a universal light switch. Oh no! This was more like a light explosion that would have been way more than your eyes could handle.
The Bible tells us in Psalm 33:6 that the heavens were made by the word of God. He breathed out the universe and everything in it. So when God said He wanted light—that light came flying out of His mouth at 186,000 miles per second! That’s how fast light travels, so we call it the “speed of light.” God’s light streaked across the heavens, chased back the darkness, and lit up the entire universe in a blaze of brilliant glory.
Only one object can move faster than the speed of light—and that’s the speed of God. When you call out to God in prayer, He’s instantly right there to listen—and He starts working on His answer right away. The thing is, though, God may not give you that answer right away. Sometimes He asks you to wait for it, and sometimes He might not give the answer you want. But you can trust that God will always give you the exact, right answer—at just the right moment and in just the right way. He’s always working faster than the speed of light!
Dear Lord, we can’t even begin to imagine how fast light really is. And to know that You hear our prayers even faster than that is amazing to us. Thank You, Lord, for rushing to listen to us! In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
