IF we think about it; The Creator is! What do we have to offer? As we consider how puny we are we realize what we truly are! What is Man that God is mindful of Him? The son of Man that God cares for us? The Creator made Man a little lower than the Heavenly beings and crowned Man with glory and honor. The birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas have been gifted into our care. O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in ALL the Earth!
‘Time’ is a complex topic. In ways it can be simplified. ‘Time’ exists here on Earth, Earth rotates on its axis and around the Sun, it is the realm that we currently exist.
I will throw a morsel for you to dwell on: IF in fact the greatest history text is valid – The span of recorded history is roughly 5,000 years, beginning with the Sumerian cuneiform script, with the oldest coherent texts from about 2600 BC. Ancient history covers all continents inhabited by humans in the period 3000 BC – AD 500. What was before the existence of Man? In what image is Man created? And God created Man in His Image, in the Image of God He created Man, Male and Female created He them… In the day that God created Man, in the likeness of God made He Man. Male and female created He them, and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
To be created in God’s Image means to be the mirror and. representative of God. As a mirror, man must show God Himself to other creatures, and as a representative, he or she must do God’s work on Earth.
God’s work? “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from The Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. … If you put your talents to use, you are proving to God that you Love Him and worship Him.
And we pray:
Thank You for Your great Love and blessing over our lives. Thank You that Your favor has no end, but it lasts for our entire existence. Forgive us for sometimes forgetting that You are intimately acquainted with all of our ways, that You know everything that concerns us, and You cover us as with a shield. We ask that we would walk in Your blessing and goodness today. That Your face will shine down upon us. That You would open the right doors for our lives and for our loved ones, that You would close the wrong doors and protect us from those we need to walk away from. Establish the work of our hands and bring to fulfillment all that You have given us to do in these days. We pray that You would make our way purposeful and our footsteps firm out of Your goodness and Love. Give us a heart of wisdom to hear Your voice, and make us strong by Your huge favor and grace.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
