I’m exploring Genesis to learn GOD’s point of view. Today I discover: Another Day!
To the best of my ability, this is GOD’S STORY: His Word considered….
“Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so.” (Genesis 1:11)
How enthralling! Did the LORD GOD inhale and smell the grass and flowers, trees and plants? How excited was He at what came forth from His lips and before His eyes? Did He envision every detail or did His nature progress spontaneously from cell to finished product of its own volition once He created it?
Did each person: Creator, Son, Spirit, know what was to develop or was one surprised by another’s Creation at any point?
To imagine GOD’s Creativity, His personality, His engagement is extraordinary, isn’t it? Of course He wasn’t surprised in the sense that He is all-encompassing, all- powerful, all-knowing. Just as He watches over us, so too He watched over His Creation. And yet, it is amazing to contemplate How He Created!
We are His workmanship
We can be so “confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6)
His work in us is never finished. We get in the way of His good work so often, but did the Creation oblige? Surely it did!
And so, it was Another Day! Day 3 and it was good!
Now its our turn
Let us be creative — creating our sphere of reference, our perspective, our attitude… to:
Dwell on His goodness, His creation, His life-giving power.
Accept His leadership and surrender to His power, again.
Feed on His faithfulness, endure His challenges, know He is good, life is good, His creation is good and all is for your benefit.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)
Larus Press with the blog stream Preparing the Bride is all about enabling us to be ready for Jesus’ return, preparing also for all He has in store for us in the meantime.
How do we prepare as the Bride of Christ? One aspect is to learn GOD’S STORY. Piece by piece, and peace by peace, we learn to walk as He has walked. And we learn His perspective.
Here at Preparing the Bride, I’m telling GOD’S STORY. Presumptuous?! Not when simply looking at scripture, because scripture is the unfolding of God’s story to those who read it.
