Creation Devotional December 14 - Geology

Daily Devotional – December 14



Have you noticed that many mountain ranges lie next to deep valleys?

  • The Himalaya Mountains lie next to the Ganges Plain. The Ganges Plain is a deep valley filled in with sedimentary rocks.
  • The Teton Range of mountains is adjacent to Jackson Hole (which lies in a valley) where there appears to be only 6,000 feet of vertical change from the valley to the top of the mountains. Jackson Hole is built on the top of many layers of sedimentary rock. If we go all the way to the bottom of this sediment, all the way to the basement granite rock layers, we find this sedimentary rock has dropped down 20,000 feet below sea level. Now add the Teton Mountains (13,000 feet above sea level) to the 20,000 feet of sedimentary rock at the base of that mountain, and it represents a sediment thickness of 33,000 feet!


As the waters rushed off the rising mountains at the end of the Flood, sediments were carried with it. This filled the basins we see near the mountains. The mountains did rise up, and the valleys did sink just as it says in Psalm 104:8. The earth’s landscapes bear witness to an absolutely devastating Genesis Flood.


They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.

~ Psalm 104:8
