Our God is a god of wonder, a god so incredible our minds cannot even fathom His power. He spoke our beautiful life giving planet into being. Can you speak something into being? Even the kids that my body produced do not do what I ask when I speak! But our God spoke, and it was.
This God created the earth not just for His own delight, if so why would He put people here? He also put this beautiful earth full of fruit trees, and sea monsters for us to delight in. His intention was for us to enjoy it, to multiply on it. He gave us all kinds of things to eat in the plants and trees and when He looked back at all of it He said, “This is very good”.
When you read this incredibly story in Genesis, chapter one, don’t miss this very important statement about our own beginning with our God, “Let Us make man in Our image and likeness to rule the fish in the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all wild animals on earth, and all reptiles that crawl upon the earth.” Look closer, “Let Us make man in Our image and likeness…” Did you catch that, you are created in the image of God! We are His representatives! We are His image bearers here on the earth.
Our God is truly the God of Wonders! If He could take all the darkness of the earth’s forces and make light, what could He not do in your heart, in your marriage, or your kids lives? Why doubt this God?
He has promised to make you a new creation, He wants His light to shine through you!
2 Corinthians 4:6 NEB
For the same God who said, ‘Out of darkness let light shine’, has caused his light to shine within us, to give the light of revelation – the revelation of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
You were created with a grand purpose! You truly are His girl, His child – made to bring light into darkness, sharing the glory and hope of Jesus wherever you go! Remember your beginning today, remember Who created you, and why He has chosen you!
