Psalm 104 God is the Theory of Everything

KEY TEXT: Ps 104:29-30 When you hide your face, they are dismayed; when you take away their breath, they die and return to their dust. When you send forth your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the ground.

KEY THOT: The whole creation (matter, energy and life) is created by the Lord through Christ and His Spirit. It is now sustained and renewed by the Spirit. In Colossians 1:17, we read that Christ is “before all things, and in him all things hold together.” 

We like to think that the universe is like a machine that God has left to run according to its own internal impersonal laws after He made it. In other words, He left it to the immutable laws of physics and evolution to keep it going. But what Scripture tells us is that God has never “let go” of his creation: he was personally involved in its creation and continues to be involved in its sustenance and renewal. Psalm 104:30 affirms that the Spirit renews the ground while Paul declares that in Christ “all things hold together.”

I have come to the conclusion recently that even the “laws” of physics are not immutable but are subject to change over the course of creation’s history. There is only one immutable factor in Creation—that is God himself. He is the Theory of Everything and He can change the laws of physics to suit his purpose. This he will do when He creates a new heaven and new earth—overturning even the most fundamental Second Law of Thermodynamics (Entropy) which says that everything in the Universe will finally disintegrate into chaos.

Instead of putting my faith in Science and its laws, I should put my faith in God and his immutable laws. He is the only unchanging Reality in this Universe. We no longer need a Theory of Everything to explain everything. We have already found it--it is God. Hallelujah!

Thank You Father that You are the Theory of Everything, that in You Everything holds together through Your Spirit. Amen.
