365 days with Newton


Ascribe all to God

‘And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.’ Genesis 1:2–3

Consider the great Author of that beautiful change which took place in the course of the six days. The Spirit of God moved—the same word is used in Deuteronomy 32:11: ‘As an eagle fluttereth over her young.’ It signifies the powerful influence and energy which penetrated the whole mass and by a general motion prepared their separation out of that confused state in which they were blended together. And this is ascribed to the Spirit of God. It was not, as some men afterwards dreamed, by a blind and casual impulse. The Scriptures teach us to ascribe all to God. By the word of his almighty power God produced light. He said, Let there be—and it was. This is the most excellent and beautiful of all visible things and that by which all other things are made known. It was a direct opposition to the state just before—and there could be no tendency in darkness to produce it. Yet the word of God brought it forth immediately. From this beginning, the whole beautiful creation was gradually accomplished in the course of six days, as in the course of this chapter. For so it seemed fit to his wisdom, otherwise he could have finished all in an instant.
Could all the art of man suffice
No, ’tis the work of GOD alone;
To move away the snow,
An emblem of the power
To clear the rivers from the ice,
By which he melts the heart of stone,
Or make the waters flow?
In his appointed hour.

     JESUS, we in thy name entreat,
     Reveal thy gracious arm;
     And grant thy Spirit’s kindly heat,
     Our frozen hearts to warm.
