Starting in Genesis
|What a beautiful day it is in Oregon! I'm starting my reading again in a brand new Bible. I'm excited about it. I've got a busy day planned, so here is a thought for today:|
IT'S ALL ABOUT GOD- I heard a preacher say a few months ago something that spoke to my heart. (In fact, it was my pastor who led me to Christ as a nine year old boy telling me this at my father's funeral.) He said that Genesis one is not about creation, it is about the God of creation. Yes, creation's story is told and that is exactly how God did it, but the bigger picture is the God of creation. You cannot help but notice that!
Here is the breakdown: God created; God moved; God said; God saw; God called; God said; God made; God called; God said; God called; God saw; God said; God saw; God said; God made; God set; God saw; God said; God created; God saw; God blessed; God said; God made; God saw; God said; God created; God created; God blessed; God said; God said; God saw;... and all of this in chapter one!!
Here at the beginning of this beautiful day.... can we acknowledge that today.... is all about God. It is His plan, we are His children, it was His Son who bought us, it is His will we are to perform, it is His blessings we need, it is His comfort that gets us through each day, it is His joy that is imparted to us, it is all, it is all, it is all..... about God!
Enjoy your day and dwell on God today. Pastor Mike Mutchler
