With Just a Word

By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. 
~ Hebrews 11:3

Consider how strong the word of God is.  He speaks and things come into existence from nothing.  That sends chills down my spine!  No one else could do this.  One of the laws of nature is that all matter comes from pre-existing matter.  Not one thing comes from 'nothing.'  Yet God is able to speak, and things are there which were not!!  In Genesis 1 verse 3 it states, "Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light."  He just says the word and light is where it was not before.  

Then if we jump over to the New Testament, Jesus speaks to the raging seas we find not creation, but Jesus asleep in a ship at sea, a raging storm threatens and his disciples are frightened.  "Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea,“Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm."…
