In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)
We know this chapter in the bible, very familiar to us all. I start here in remembering the LORD, because apart from knowing God as our Creator, we can’t know him as our Savior.
This semester in our worldview class at Academy we read that “It has often been pointed out that if a person really believes Genesis 1:1, he will not find it difficult to believe anything else recorded in the Bible. That is, if God really created all things, then He controls all things and can do all things.” (Morris, Henry., The Genesis Record)
Today I remember that in the beginning, God . . .
Read those words slowly.
God . . .
He was and is and is to come. We are a part of His story, His creation, His plan. We are here because of Him. Our purpose, our identity, our life is in Him.
He is, therefore I am . . .
Thankful today to be grafted in to His kingdom, for life that He gives, that before Genesis 1:1 was ever written, He had me in His mind. Before Genesis 1:1 was written, he had the cross in mind. Before Genesis 1:1 was written, He had Revelation 22 in mind. He makes all things, and He will make all things new.
And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. (Genesis 1:31)
