Creation Devotional April 29 - Geology

Daily Devotional – April 29



Water and wind gaps are common geological features found worldwide, yet their formation is a mystery to many scientists. These gaps form a shallow notch in the upper part of a mountain ridge. The notch is an erosional notch and is not caused from faulting (rock layer movements). Water gaps channels still have rivers running between the mountain peaks while wind gaps only have wind.


In central Wyoming, the Sweetwater River flows through such a granite ridge. How did the river cut this 330 feet deep channel? And what about the Arun River in the Himalayan Mountains flows through a water gap that is 4 miles deep and 13 miles wide. Why wouldn’t the water have flowed around rather than through these mountains? How does a river cut right through the top of a mountain ridge? It can’t! But if you put on your biblical glasses and view these gaps with the Genesis Flood in mind, the explanation becomes obvious. At the end of the Flood, as the continents and mountains of the world were rising up out of the water, enormous sheets of water would have been channelized, initially cutting a notch through the layers. As it continued to pour through the rising land surfaces, huge gaps were formed. Later, a river might run through the gap; scientists call that a water gap. If no river flows through but only wind, scientists call it a wind gap. We find these water and wind gaps all over the world… but of course we would. The Flood was a powerful, globe-covering event.


And the waters receded continually from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters decreased.

~ Genesis 8:3
