You woke up. Hallelujah!!!
You are waiting, have a job! ALL glory to God!!!
Let’s take it basic! You are alive. Why?
Jesus offers us an incredible promise: “life to the full” John 10:10. If you are in Christ – if you have made Him Lord of your life, gotten baptized and received The Holy Spirit – you are alive with Him! As promised, we are taking this apart to the nitty gritty!
Thanksgiving qualifies you for another act of favour from God. Testimony commits God to do more.
Strength and courage is released, when you thank God.
Oh, the depth of the Riches and Wisdom and Knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!
Thus the Heavens and the Earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh ‘day’ God finished His work that He had done, and He rested on the seventh ‘day’ from all His ‘work’ that He had done. So God blessed the seventh ‘day’ and made it holy, because on it God rested from all His work that He had done in Creation. These are the generations of the heavens and the Earth when they were Created, in the ‘day’ that The Lord God made the Earth and the heavens. When no bush of the field was yet in the land and no small plant of the field had yet sprung up—for The Lord God had not caused it to rain on the land, and there was no Man to work the ground. Hold on 1 second! Think on this…
Day-age creationism, a type of old Earth creationism, is an interpretation of the creation accounts in Genesis. It holds that the six days referred to in the Genesis account of creation are not ordinary 24-hour days, but are much longer periods (from thousands to billions of years).
A contrary view:
from his rib, a woman. They were created in God’s image and likeness, by implication a part of the God kind (verses 26-27). The potential for development of God’s nature was implanted with a spiritual component called “the spirit in man” (1 Corinthians 2:11), which gave mankind the ability to create, reflect, plan and design. The physical creation was now finished, but the spiritual instruction was about to begin.
Day 7: God creates the Sabbath (Genesis 2:2-3). God created the Sabbath on the seventh day by resting and blessing the seventh day, separating it as holy.
We see that these seven days culminate in the creation of the Sabbath day, designed to give us 24 hours each week to develop a deeper relationship with God.
Mention of the evening and morning for each of the first six days ensures we understand these are literal days, not thousands of years or epochs.
God does not need evolution!!!
The ALL-powerful, supremely intelligent Creator God did not need macroevolution to help Him in Creating. He tells us He Created the first Man directly from the dust of the ground (Genesis 2:7), not through a long series of evolutionary changes.
Christians need not feel that their beliefs are threatened by the apparent global acceptance of the theory of evolution. There are explanations for the fossils, strata and other evidence of an ancient world that are compatible with the Bible.
Be sure to read our article “Can Christians Believe in Evolution?” This article explores what Jesus and the apostles taught and understood about Genesis. A follower of Christ will believe what Christ taught.
Knowing and believing The Creator God is an incredible blessing. The Bible tells us God is working out a great plan to add children of God to His family. That plan gives us real hope and purpose. Evolution, on the other hand, offers no plan and no hope.
Genesis is accurate
The book of Genesis is accurate. The “days” in Genesis 1 are literal days involving the same type of evenings and mornings as we experience today.
You are Created for a purpose!
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares The Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble. Proverbs 16:4
For we are His workmanship, Created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
And we pray:
LORD Heavenly Father, Your Essence has a plan for me. Use xpress, Amen. Engulf me, surround me, fill me with Your goodness and glory, Amen. Soak me in and with The blood of Jesus, Your Son and Word, Amen. Fill me that I spill forth with Your blessings. Your Word says: Your Essence will meet all my needs according to the riches of You glory in Christ Jesus; the angel of Yours encamps around me for I fear You,
I am rescued; You are always/all ways near me as I call upon Your Essence in truth; You have enclosed me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me; for You are a Wall of fire around me, and You are The glory in my existence. Father, words can not express my emotions, Hallelujah glory!!! Use me LORD, Your will be done in my life, Amen.
It’s good to make a habit of thanking God and to show Him courtesy through our thanks and praise. We should continually thank Him as an act of our worship and faith. And the best reason to offer thanksgiving to our Heavenly Father is simply because we Love Him, our ALL.
