The word of God must always stand above the word of man. The Bible says “let God be true but every man a liar (Rom. 3:4). God and His word are always true whether or not people believe Him. Applications of this truth can benefit us greatly. For example, the Bible’s narrative about the formation of the solar system, the preparation of the land for habitation, and the creation of life on the earth immediately brings into question many secular world views. Therefore, believers must become accustomed to thinking differently. We are not to judge God’s word, but rather, it judges us.
We are assured in the book of Numbers chapter twenty-three verse nineteen that God will do what He has said. “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”. All of God’s promises are sure because God cannot lie (Hebrews 6:18). All the promises of God are true and trustworthy. He doesn’t say one thing and mean another. When God speaks, He always has something very specific to say. He never speaks in generalities. If He promised it, He will do it. He has magnified His word even above His name (Psalms 138:2). If God broke His word to us, all creation would self-destruct because it is held together by the power of His Word (Hebrews 1:3).
The word of God solves every problem. Believe that God’s word can bring order into any chaotic situation. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters” (Gen 1:1-2). ‘The earth was without form’. That means lacking the order it will have when God’s commands were complete. ‘And darkness was on the face of the deep’. This is a further description of lack of complete order and beauty that will emerge within six days. Both statements reveal that creation reflected God’s normal process of bringing order out of chaos through His word. ‘And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.’ The Holy Spirit was active to perform the word as God spoke every word.
The word of God is so alive and it’s so powerful that it has the ability to transform you. God’s word transformed the chaos. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light” (Gen 1:3). God said occurred 10 times in Genesis chapter 1 as a means of bringing order in chaotic situation. God’s word is alive and active (Heb. 4:12). Everything hears His voice, and every situation obeys His word. God commanded the earth and its productive power, to bring forth the plant kingdom. “11 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good” (Gen. 1:11-12).
Man says there’s evolution, but God’s word says He created things according to their kind. For example, great sea creatures are the most magnificent ocean creatures, such as whales and dolphins. These were all created according to their kind. This precludes any evolution into another kind: A fish can never produce a lion. Let God be true and every man a liar.” 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good” (Gen. 1:21). The word of God must always stand above the word of man because God’s word is always true (John 17:17, Psalms 119:160).
