A: The short answer: Because that’s how he decided to do it! God is very sure of himself and not under pressure to prove to people that he is omnipotent. His way of doing things is not how we would do it (Isaiah 55:9) and most often unexpected. This is because we were created by Jesus, according to the Book of John chapter one. He thought us up, formed us in his hands and breathed us into life. His brain works in ways we cannot fathom because our brains were crafted by him. There is a higher mind above ours, in other words, with higher intelligence and thought. Scientists call the Bible’s creation story “intelligent design.”
Q: Dear Pastor, If God is omnipotent (all-powerful), why did he take six days to create everything? Why not speak everything into existence all at once?
