Focus: Genesis 1: 1, 25
Scripture Reading: Genesis 1:1-27;
NOW since we are starting the year of 2014 again ... NEW ... it only makes sense that we start in the beginning ... the beginning of this world ... the beginning of the Bible [boxed sections are from Beth Moore's book, and the Bible]
|"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."...v.1|
|"... And God saw that it was good."... v. 25|
Beth starts out with this ... in the beginning ... of this devotional
|"God recorded His Word through the pens of inspired men chiefly for one reason - to tell us about Himself. In the first few swipes of ink,|
He demonstrated something vastly important among His attributes ..."~Beth Moore, p. 5
what might your guess be?
|"Only God could combine wholly creative and completely orderly."~Beth Moore|
|..."Take a few moments to think of reasons to praise our creative and orderly God. Then lift those praises to Him in an attitude of thanksgiving."~Beth Moore, p. 5|
Beth goes on after making the above statement to writing about how some of us are creative and some of us are orderly; yet rarely do they abide together and thus we discover that "we need one another" or "our different contributions are unbalanced and lacking." But not so, with God ... He's complete and "He needed no one to complete Him." God desires to be totally creative with you ... and then she asks us,
"Do you allow Him this freedom?"
