“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1
People everywhere around the world are constantly asking the questions of how and when everything started. Scientists and archeologists are digging and studying trying to find the answers to those questions.
Looking at the earth and records does not reveal the true answer. It will only open up more questions. People may find out some things about life on this planet, but they cannot find everything. Ultimately there has to be a beginning, a starting point.
No person ever lived at the time of the beginning. The only one that existed was God and the angels. God chose to create the heavens and the earth. And He created them out of nothing, because nothing existed in the physical prior to God’s work.
Every believer from the smallest child to the oldest adult can quote this verse. They know that God created everything in the beginning. However, what does that really mean to the believer?
When a person creates something, he does it with a purpose in mind for that object. No one creates something without a purpose, or just to throw it away.
God had a purpose. He wanted to create a place for people to live. Again it comes back to why would God want a place for people to live?
God was looking for some fellowship with people. Every person is created with the purpose to spend time with God. God wants to spend time with you and do things with you. He has a plan for your life that includes Him.
Often many believers do not trust God’s wisdom in how to do things. As a believer you must learn to trust God with the experience He has. Since God started everything in motion, He knows what is best for you and for everyone else. He has been at work at it since the beginning.
Take some time today to view God’s wonderful earth. Realize the power and wisdom He has in making everything. With this in mind, realize what He can do in and through you. Go back to the beginning and allow God to do everything. You don’t have the wisdom or power to do it all.
I pray today that you will realize God’s great wisdom and power; that you trust God with all of your life; that you will allow God to work in and through you; and that you will allow God to create His life in you.
