Machen: the creative God

    In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
    —Genesis 1:1 (NIV)
    The possibility of miracle, then, is indissolubly joined with “theism.” Once admit the existence of a personal God, maker and Ruler of the world, and no limits, temporal or otherwise, can be set to the creative powers of such a God. Admit that God once created the world, and you cannot deny that He might engage in creation again.
    ... J. Gresham Machen (1881-1937), Christianity and Liberalism, The Macmillan Company, 1923, p. 87 (see the book)
    See also Gen. 1:1; Ex. 3:19-20; 1 Kings 18:37-39; Isa. 40:28; Jon. 1:14-16; Matt. 11:3-5; Luke 5:26; John 4:48; 9:3; 11:42; Acts 2:22
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, all nature exists by Your will.
