Open The Book of Genesis and Meet God
The Bible begins with the book of Genesis, the very word means "beginning." Have you ever noticed that in the first verse of the Bible you meet God? The Bible begins with, "In the beginning, GOD created the heavens and the earth.
Though we are just beginning to learn about God, the first verses of the Bible (and Genesis chapter one) teaches us a great deal about who God is!
We immediately see God as the omnipotent Creator who is not subject to the earth and its laws but controls them.
We see that God is all-powerful and can create with the utterance of His word.
We learn that God rules creation and that he is bigger than this world...whether this world fails to exist or not, God is here.
Before our human existence came to be, God was here.
We also learn that God is a ruler. He is the one in charge and in control. All creation is subject to His power and authority.
We learn that through the power of the Holy Spirit, God brings order out of chaos. He takes a wasteland and creates beauty.
"The earth was without form and void and darkness was on the face of the deep."
God creates beauty from ashes (or dust)... He brings light into our darkness, He brings life when there is none, and he does so by the power of His Will.
thanks for such a great post, I am really enjoyed it.
