The very first verse in the Bible identifies God as the Creator:
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1, NIV)
The Bible tells us that he created it from nothing, and moved from primitive to advanced– man. God continued to create daily until he rests on the seventh day (Genesis 1:1-2:4).
Although we didnt start this study with creation, to know God, you must know and believe HE created it all!
Paul says in Romans:
“What may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities — his eternal power and divine nature — have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made….” (Romans 1:19-20)
God is the Creator, Builder, Architect, God of heaven, Maker of heaven and earth, and Potter.
Isaiah 45: 5-12 introduces us to God the Creator!
I am the LORD, and there is no other;
apart from me there is no God.
I will strengthen you,
though you have not acknowledged me,
so that from the rising of the sun
to the place of its setting
men may know there is none besides me.
I am the LORD, and there is no other. (Isaiah 45:5-6)
“I form (yāṣar) the light and create (bārā’) darkness,
I bring (‘āśā) prosperity and create (bārā’) disaster;
I, the LORD, do all these things.” (Isaiah 45:7)
The point of this verse is that God can bring either wealth or poverty, good circumstances or bad. There is not a good god and a bad god at work. The one God is the only GOD!
God’s heart is love, his preferred means is through blessing. But while God can bring difficult circumstances to bear, we must realize that we have an enemy, who actively seeks the harm of God’s people. God has chosen to “allow” or “permit” the enemy to work on earth for a limited time, but ultimately he will be overthrown and destroyed! We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).
God created the heavens and the earth. He created man IN HIS IMAGE. So that means we are valuable, worthy and great masterpieces
Never let anyone tell you any different!
Be Blessed today and always
Prayer: God I thank you for being the Creator. I am grateful that I am fearly and wonderfully made. I embrace my uniqueness today and everyday!!
