Genesis 1: 3
And God said, Let there be light; and there was light.

That is power (omnipotent)!  God spoke and then what He spoke happened.  What happened?  What is light?  We define it as electromagnetic radiation which is energy emitted and absorbed by charged particles with wave like properties.  So, God turned the universe on with His voice.  Or, God added the wave like energy to the universe.  This would imply that the physical universe is an open system.  This contradicts the popular science notion that the physical universe is closed and isolated.  Open meaning God can put things in it that were not in it before, like, energy.  And it means he can take things out, like, Enoch (Genesis 5: 24) and Elijah (2 Kings 2: 11).  An open universe should not be a surprise, as every other system known to man is an open system.  But this implies things exist outside the material, physical, natural.

God's power is then super natural.  The materialist is here found of saying; "You might as well attribute things you don't understand to The Great Flying Spaghetti Monster."  Were this an honest appeal by the materialist, I would be encouraged for them.  It would mean that there heart was softening toward God.  As it is, this is a scoff most easily refuted with testimony.  "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,..." - Hebrews 12: 1.  You will find a scant few scoffers compared to the magnitude of this cloud.  The vast majority of humans that have ever lived embrace the idea of a real god.  As we continue through Genesis Chapter 1, we will gain more and more knowledge about the one true living God Almighty.
