Genesis 1:1 – In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

This is one of the most profound statements that has ever been made, and yet we find that it is a statement that is certainly challenged in the day in which we are living. This verse is all we have of the actual creation—with the exception of the creation of man and animals later on in the Book of Genesis. But this is the creation story and it is a very brief story, indeed. The thing I want you to focus on this week is found in the first four words of this verse. “In the beginning God,” before anything ever was, God was. Before your life, before your job, before your marriage, before all your worries God existed. Within Gods eternal existence He already knew every single moment of your life. Every decision you would make and every path you would choose. Nothing is outside of HIs awareness.


I think it is good to consistently put God in His rightful place. His rightful place is at the forefront of every circumstance in your life. So, your challenge this week is to put God at the beginning of everything. Let God be in the beginning of your day, let Him be at the beginning of your joy, let Him be at the beginning of your hopes and dreams. Put God first, because He has always been first, even from the very beginning of creation. What will God create through you this week? He desires to do that very thing you know? How will God use your life to make an impact in someone else’s life today? Just as it says in Matthew 6:33 – “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” put God first and He will add value to your life. May God bless you always.
