Did God Create The Universe In 6 Literal Days?

By the seventh day God completed His work that He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work that He had done.

Genesis 2:2 HCSB

God created the universe with the sun, the moon, and stars in 6 days. Was it 6 literal days or millions of years? The Book of Exodus reveals the answer.

For the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and everything in them in six days; then He rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and declared it holy. -Exodus 20:11

When it says that God “rested”, it doesn’t mean that God was tired from creating the universe. It just means that God finished what He wanted to create. God didn’t use His hands to create, but He spoke everything into existence.

The heavens were made by the word of the LORD, and all the stars, by the breath of His mouth. -Psalm 33:6

What does all this mean? It means that the Lord is so powerful that no problems that you face or will go through in the future will be too hard for the Lord to handle. The only thing that the Lord Jesus Christ seeks from you is obedience to His Word. He doesn’t look to see how smart you are, what job you have, or your accomplishments. What He’s looking at is if you are following His ways as found in the Scriptures.

How much do you desire God’s favor?
