IN THE BEGINNING


IN THE BEGINNING

Genesis 1:1 (NKJV) In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

What an amazing statement!  In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.  It does not say, “I hope God did.”  It sure does not show God trying to prove that He did.  It just says that He did it!  One thing is sure, and that is, that God is sure of Himself.  We need to just believe it His way, and everything will work out.

When you think about what this verse has in it, it is truly amazing.  God created everything that we can see (and the things that we cannot see) with His Word.  He made the stars, the planets, and the moons that circle the planets.  He made every living thing, from humans to animals to angelic beings.  He made it all!

God, our heavenly Father, is truly amazing, and one day we will share in this wonder of His.  It says in 1 Corinthians 2:9, “But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

Now that should get your hope and expectation going!  God has given us little glimpses of heaven and the new earth.  He told us about things like streets of gold, no pain or sickness, and the lion laying with the lamb.  One day it will all happen, and we will live before Him and with Him.  One day, we will see our Jesus!

I do not know about you, but I want to be able to hear Him say, “Well done you good and faithful one.”  Yeah, that is going to be heaven right there!  So go ahead and look at all that God has created, because He created it for you and for me.

Confession: My Heavenly Father made this entire world for me to live in and enjoy.  He gave me dominion to live a life of abundant blessing.  Today, I choose that life over the life of sin and death.
