Genesis Beginning of The World Chapter 1 Audio

My read of Genesis beginning of the world

What comes to mind when reading about Genesis beginning of the world, is how beautiful and perfect God made the world. It appears to have been so peaceful. I wish things were that way now.

Then I think why genesis beginning of the world?

Genesis beginning of the world is Why

Psalm 139:15-16 SEARCH ME, O GOD, AND KNOW MY HEART

15 k My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.

In the beginnings of time, as He was forming the earth He knew we would sin. He made us not perfect, gave us the willpower to chose good or evil, He knew we would choose evil over Him, He had a perfect plan to redeem us.

But why?

Why did He want to suffer the pain?

Was He just bored with His life?

My thinking is that before He made us He was bored. He made us with a longing to worship Him. One might think that He is a bit selfish, self-glorifying. If that is the case then why would He do things as He did?

Look at the description of the earth in Genesis 1.

It is beyond comprehension with all the details of the earth. Science comes close, God did give us a mind to reason things out. But with that mind, we also think our way further from God. Why try to make sense of our world to our own understanding. Often our finite minds determine that there is no God because we cannot understand Him!

Beginnings Proves His Power and Knowledge

Job 37:16 16

Do you know how the clouds are balanced, Those wondrous works of n Him who is perfect in knowledge?

There is no way our brains could even come to close to understanding God and His ways. At least not while we are here on earth. Maybe all these questions of why He made us and everything cannot be fully answered until we get to heaven.

Our Failing Selves

But think of it, what a mess we made of His perfect world just by rejecting His gift to us. Our rebellious nature to want to be more than what He is.

That sounds like satan. He is cast out of heaven because he wanted more than what God is. He wanted all the glory and power.

Does that not sound just like us? I know it sounds like me. Until I truly got to know God, and Jesus if I was not in control I was afraid. I was afraid of what would happen next and the pain it would bring. I had already struggled enough in my life I just wanted some peace in my life, some happiness. It was not until I could let go of the control that God could bless me with peace, and joy. I now know no matter what God will give me what I need so I no longer need to worry and try to control what is not controllable. No, I know joy like never before. My circumstances are not easier. I still live on disability. I am still married, but a living single mother. The only thing that changed is my focus on God.

Salvation Do you want this peace in your life? God’s joy? Have you accepted Jesus as your savior yet?

If not you could say this prayer: Lord, thank you for sacrificing yourself to save me. Today I confess that I have sinned. I confess I am not in control, that only through you can I find peace through my struggles. I accept you today as my Savior and Lord. Please come and fill me with your strength to live for you no matter what is going on around me. In Jesus name Amen

What is next?

If you said this prayer from your heart know God honors a sincere prayer and He has come to you, filled you and Loves you. Reach out to me or those at Life Church. Let them know you just accepted Christ and they will give you some free resources to help you in this new life.  Let me know how I could pray for you. I cannot promise you that your life circumstances will change drastically. But I can promise you that you will change. As you read the Bible, pray, and depend on the Lord He will fill you with His strength, power, peace, knowledge to get through life.
