1114th -- Message On Genesis 1


One thing I know about the Bible, God's Holy Word, is that every time I 
read it I learn and see something new that I had not seen before. It is a 
living revelation of the Holy God who created all things for His good 
pleasure. The Lord is the One who should be magnified above all people, 
above all places and above all things. He should be Praised and Glorified 
within our lives so that all who see us may more importantly see Him. The 
Lord is worthy to receive the praises of His people and the quicker we 
recognize that God is the One who is our provider, our sustainer and our 
life giver, the quicker we will be in giving the Lord all the Glory for 
the great things He has done in our lives.
(Hebrews 4:12) (Revelation 4:11) (Psalm 34:1-4)

I was reading in Genesis recently and I was newly amazed at how God created
the world and all that is in it. I read Genesis chapter 1 and when I got 
to the end of the chapter, I felt led to read it again and then again and 
I noticed something very particular that I had not noticed before. On the 
first day God created light and when He was finished, God said that it was 
good. God did the same thing on each subsequent day as well. God said 
that it was good when He created the land that produced vegetation and 
trees that grew seed bearing fruit. God said it was good after He created 
the sun, moon and the stars. God said that it was good after He created 
the fish and the creatures of the sea, the birds of the air and the animals
on the land, but it wasn't until He created man and gave him dominion over 
all the earth that God said it was very good. (Genesis 1:1-31)

After God created man in His own image and gave them dominion over all the 
earth and told them to be fruitful and multiply, that is when God looked 
over all the work that He had created and saw that it was very good. Before
creating man and giving them dominion over His creation, God saw that 
everything He created was good, but after creating man in His own image 
and giving him dominion over His creation, God saw that it was very good. 
One thing we should always keep in mind is that God sees us as a very good 
creation. The Lord loves us with an everlasting love. His love for us 
can never be measured, it can never be weighed and it can never be 
diminished. His love for mankind was so great that He willingly came down 
to earth and became a man just like us, but with a much greater purpose. 
The Lord Jesus willingly suffered and died on a Cross so that we might be 
reconciled back to God again and be one with Him just as Adam was the 
beginning. (Jeremiah 31:3) (Isaiah 49:15-16) (Philippians 2:5-11)

Man's sinfulness was not enough to keep God from loving us. Romans 5:8-10 
declares “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were 
yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by 
His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if, when we were 
enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, 
being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.” It is through the Cross 
of Christ that we become justified before God the Father. When He looks 
upon us, He sees us through the blood of Christ and now God calls us His 
beloved child not because we are righteous or justifiable, but because 
Jesus was the perfect Sacrifice to redeem us and reconcile us back to God 
again. (Hebrews 9:13-14) (1 Peter 1:3-5) (1 Peter 1:18-23)

No matter what you may go through and no matter what challenge or trial 
comes before you, I want you to know that God sees you as very good. You 
have not been forgotten, you have not been forsaken and you have not been 
set aside. God's plans for you are very good. Your future is very good. 
Your ending is very good. Our job is to stay in faith and have confidence 
that all that came before us serves a purpose to strengthen us, to give us 
an unwavering resolve and to remind us that God is faithful to His Word 
and as long as we trust Him then all will be well with us. Have confidence
in God and with your actions show the Lord that your life is held securely 
in the Palms of His Hands. (2 Cor. 4:8-11) (Jeremiah 29:11) (Philippians 1:6)

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Psalm 16:8-11 “I have set the LORD always before me: because He is at my 
right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory 
rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. For Thou wilt not leave my 
soul in hell; neither wilt Thou suffer Thine Holy One to see corruption. 
Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in Thy presence is fulness of joy; at 
Thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”

Psalm 103:1-5 “Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless 
His holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: 
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who 
redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness 
and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy 
youth is renewed like the eagle's.”

Psalm 118:5-9 “I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, 
and set me in a large place. The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what 
can man do unto me? The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: 
therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me. It is better to 
trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in 
the LORD than to put confidence in princes.”

2 Corinthians 4:17-18 “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment,
worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we 
look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not 
seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are 
not seen are Eternal.”

All scriptures can be found in the King James Version.
