|Today is a beautiful Sunday morning. It was not that way last Sunday for Easter, but it was today. A beautiful day. Today I read the first ten chapters in Genesis and have two thoughts to share with you. I have just finished my second cup of coffee and after I type will have one more before I head off to church. I hope you have a great day at Church today. I'm so looking forward to seeing the church house filled up and God blessing. Here are my two thoughts for today:|
1) ALL THINGS GOOD- Seven times in the first chapter of Genesis we see that God spoke of His creation as being "good". He concludes the chapter in verse 31 saying that "it was very good." Today we look around at the world and see that not all is good, but we must remind ourselves that man messed that up, not God. God created it good, and also we need to remind ourselves that God will make it good again. The new Heaven and the new Earth will be made by God one day. (I think it could be soon!) Eccl. 3:11 says: "He hath made every thing beautiful in his time:" So God makes all things good." Romans 8:28 tells us that God makes all things to work together for "good". When we think of anything related to God, we can always come up with the word "good". God is good! And God makes everything He touches to be good! Let Him touch your life today dear friend. May God bless you!
2) LET US TAKE A WALK WITH GOD- In Genesis 6:9, we see that "Noah walked with God." God made man for fellowship with Him! I have often said that God made man to work, and He did, but primarily, God made man to fellowship with Him. Work was the sideline, fellowship was the main thing. Fellowship with God. We cannot have that unless we cultivate the practice of walking with God. What does that mean? Well, it means to start the morning with God, and then to communicate with Him throughout the day. Call Him up and then keep Him on the line all day. That is how I heard it expressed years ago. I like that. Walk with God today.... and every day!
May blessings be upon you dear friend. Pastor Mike Mutchler
