Gen 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
Gen 2:4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
Gen 2:5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
Since I started my daily Bible reading through the God’s Word beginning in Genesis, I have come to a deeper understanding on the Power of God’s Word, especially when I re-read the process of God creating the Earth and the heavens. It struck me yesterday when I read from Gen 2:3-5, particularly verse 5, that the Lord’s Power is so great that things grew and were without any assistance of man in the planting or the growing process, it was All His Spoken Word which brought forth Life. It was His Work alone, no man assisted in it for man had not been created. What struck me “again” is that anything “right and good” begins with God’s spoken Word and Will and the similarity or I should say the “process” with the beginning of the Salvation of a human soul is the same working Miracle. Whatever is His Will it shall be done without any assistance from man or any other source, for All Life comes from and begins from the Will of God and His
endless patient forthcoming mercy. It is the same working miracle mercy as it was from the foundation of the creation of the Earth and the heavens.
So after reading the following scriptures one can clearly see that God intends and rightly so, to receive All the Glory for His incredible Life giving Mercy. That when the Lord desires something to come forth and grow even from a darkened soul, nothing in all the Universe can stop His Will. And also I take note that each development in the creation of the earth and every living thing had it’s appropriate time and place within the scheme of things.
When He decided it was the ‘time’ nothing could stop Him from His purpose and plan. So it is with the Salvation of a soul chosen for eternal life, and not only man’s first initial “spiritual birth” but it is the same principal for man’s continual “sanctification”. When God Promises to bring forth Righteousness in the furthering of a man’s growth into His likeness of character ie; Holiness, Righteousness and Truth. He shall do it, for it is
written, therefore it will be done, without any “tilling” from man. For even our Faith in Him and His Word comes from Him. So we believe, for He has given us the Grace to believe and trust and rest in His Word and His capabilities.
Heb_12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Php_1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
So therefore all of the devotional readings for today confirms my understanding of what I have been given by the Lord to impress upon me and continue on with my Faith and Trust in Him, in Him Alone and nothing else. In Jesus Name all has been made possible, Glory to God in the Highest! Amen. Thank you Lord for strengthening my Faith in You and Your Living Word, who is the Christ our Lord.
Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Isa_1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
