Genesis 1:1 (NKJV) In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
I love that the Word of God doesn’t start out defining or defending God and that which He is or even has done in creating the world and universe. The scriptures simply state as fact that God is and that it is and was God who created all that is. He, the Lord God, created all, sustains all, and fills all.
We serve a God who is all powerful, all knowing and everywhere present. The encouragement in all of this is simply that we are not called to serve a God that is seen simply as a little more than we are, No! We are called to serve a God who is so very much more than we are or ever could be. He, the Lord God, is, period. He, the Lord God has created all things, period. He, the Lord God, has and is, upholding all things for His purposes, period.
Hebrews 1:1-4 (NKJV) God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; 3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
Even as He is, even as He has created, even as He has and is upholding all things, He has, is, and will, uphold us. Let me challenge you that when you get up each and everyday, look around and take notice of His handiwork. As you do, give thanks that He who has created all things, upholds all things and fills all things, has created you, will uphold you. and keep you until that time which is our joyous homecoming. As a child of God, He will fill you with all that is Christ in you the Hope of Glory. Recognize that as each day dawns faithfully and each spring, summer, fall and winter faithfully come every year as they were purposed to do so, even so will that which the Lord God Almighty has purposed for you, come in His chosen season.
Be encouraged, keep your eyes fixed upon Him, knowing that He who is the source of all, is faithful in all and unto all those who are His. For in Spirit and Truth, He who is all powerful, is forever and ever trustworthy, and forever unfailing in His Love, goodness and glory. Therefore, be blessed in that He who is, has called and chosen you to be His, forever and ever more. May the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternally living alive Word of God, remain your hope as He continues to uphold you and yours forevermore. Blessed be the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, forever and ever, Amen!
