Genesis 1:1-3 – “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. 3 Then God said….” NKJV
It is a beautiful cool morning, wonderful cup of coffee, the day springing to life, the word of God is a living book and the Spirit of God is whispering to my heart and mind. As I muse, I once again consider Genesis One.
What more, really needs to be said that IN THE BEGINNING GOD? Unless we follow that with CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH. Recently I spoke to an evolutionist and he could not grasp the concept of creation. He insisted that it was not “scientifically or intellectually plausible.” I pointed out the human body and its intricate unfathomable makeup, the design of the universe, Earth, and the Solar System, and that design implied a designer, but he said he would stick with science, not religious fanaticism.
Then God said, Vv. 3, 6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26, 29 and each time HE SAID, something of creation came into being and it was good, right, established and in verse 31 we see “Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was VERY GOOD…” As the little boy in Sunday school said, “God don’t make no junk.”
Our magnificent creator God spoke the worlds into existence and with His great power caused it to become reality. His Omniscience, Omnipotence, and Omnipresence was at work and is still working not only in the creation itself but in our individual lives. He created man as the central figure of creation. What God did He did for us out of His Great Love!
If our God, who can speak worlds into existence, speaks to our situation can we not believe that He is capable of bringing resolution to it? He has invited us to come boldly before the Throne and ask what we will and yet too frequently we run and hide, as Adam & Eve, rather than running into His presence and resting under the shelter of His arms.
His love for us brought everything that we see in creation into being for us. His love for us caused Jesus to go to the Cross for us. His love for us has prepared a place for us to spend Eternity with Him. He invites us to “cast our care upon Him because He cares for us…” Yet, we too frequently try to become creators in our own right and repair our own situation without His assistance. That my friends is the most foolish thing we could do.
No matter what you face today, in Him is the solution! No matter your trial, in Him is the answer! No matter your disappointment, in Him is the Victory! Turn your eyes upon Jesus today and know that the God of all Creation cares for you no matter what you are facing and is not only able but willing to come into your situation and bring His Creative Solution!
Blessings as you go through the day. Go with the view that God is the beginning, the middle, and the end. HE WAS! HE IS! HE WILL ALWAYS BE GOD!
