God Speaking Creation Into Existence Is an Awesome Demonstration of His Authority

The Word of God begins with the One who creates. It doesn't start with mountains or trees or the stars. Instead of beginning with the world we see around us its initial focus is on God Himself. This is fitting, for without God there is nothing. Although it may not be immediately apparent, we see God's authority throughout the first chapter of Genesis.
