In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1
In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1
The New Year is upon us and with that new hopes, new dreams, and new wishes (and of course new frustrations and challenges but let’s keep this positive).
The two verses today illustrate that newness profoundly. They are both pointing to the same event, the Beginning. He was there when it all began.
He, in fact, began it all.
- When you look up into the heavens at night and see the stars millions of light years away, remember, He began it all.
- When you grab a handful of sand to toss into the air as you look out over the vast sea filled with billions of creatures, remember, He began it all.
- When you hold a baby in your arms, remember, He began it all.
Every day is a chance for us to remember that, yes, He began it all. It helps us keep Him into perspective, and it helps keep us into perspective.
