   Pippa Ponders

This time of year in the Christian Calendar is known as Creationtide. This is why we held our Interactive Eco service last Sunday and have different prayer areas where we were encouraged to think about our impact on this planet. The creation accounts in Genesis are beautiful and poetic accounts of the fact that God created the world. Science is playing catch up with exactly how that happened and is providing amazing answers. But we know that many scientists who work in this field declare that there is no way our world came into being by chance. The odds are too huge for that to have happened. There is a man called Louis Giglio who is passionate about science and  is a Christian and he has produced many videos on You Tube about how creation declares the presence and glory of God. They are quite impactful and powerful – do have a look.

 We know that God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit were all present at creation and whilst we don’t yet fully understand how it all happened, the world was created out of nothing and by the powerful love of God.                                                                                                                                           This helps with how we pray when faced with difficulties of any kind, God is so much bigger than we can ever hope or imagine. Doesn’t that change our perspective? Because the God who created the universe is also intimately involved in our lives, loves us with a passionate heart and looks for us to journey with Him , growing deeper and deeper in our trust in Him.                            So next time you pray, don’t tell God how big your storm is, tell your storm how big God is – he is God of the impossible and whatever you are facing he has made a way already.                        With love,                                                                                                                                                                Pippa.
