The beginning

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
- Genesis 1:1

I recently went back to the beginning. I think it’s good to go back to the beginning sometimes. If we never go back to the beginning, we might forget. We might forget where we came from, where we began, where He has brought us from; we might forget His sovereignty. So, I went back to the beginning. Genesis.

If you have time right now and a Bible is close to you, read Genesis 1. Let it soak in, take your time and devour this passage. Close your eyes and imagine what it must have been like to be there at the beginning.

The power you would have witnessed.

The care He took to make all the little details just right.

Imagine the first sunset and sunrise and the angels weeping at the beauty of seeing this for the first time.

The thing that struck me when I read this, aside from the unfathomable power of it, was the personal nature of The Creator. This is the Being who spoke the universe into existence. Spoke it. Spoke. It. His word, His very nature has that much incomprehensible power, that much majesty, that much authority.

And this Being, The Creator wants you. And me. He wants to have a relationship with us. Just as He did with Adam and Eve, He wants to walk with you in the garden in the cool of the evening. He wants a relationship with you and me. Stop and think about that for a second, a minute, an hour..the rest of the day.

Unfathomable, incomprehensible Love.
