Devotion: Evolution and the Meaning of Life

Does Life Have Meaning?

Evolution, leaves out the truth. Life isn’t some big bang or cosmic happenstance. Life, you and I, are unique creations of a loving, purposeful God.

The LORD God created the heavens and stretched them out. He shaped the earth and all that comes from it. He gave life to the people who are on it and breath to those who walk on it. This is what the LORD God says: I, the LORD, have called you to do what is right…. —Isaiah 42:5-6a (KJV)

When we leave God out, life has no meaning and life becomes cheap. Only as we put God where He belongs at the center of creation and our lives can we have truth and know love and hope.

I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope. —Jeremiah 29:11 (GW)

Thank you, Lord, that my life is not meaningless because You created me, You love me, and You have a plan and purpose for my life.
