I recall doing a blog post on Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1 before –
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1 NIV
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1 NIV
I love how the Old Testament and New Testament point to God, not just as creator but THE creator being with His creation from the start. It’s real a blessing when you realize He stayed involved. He is a Father who kept in touch, although not in or of this world now (physically here with us) He still calls and sends us mail.
For me God has the first say and the last say. He is the beginning and the end.
Who better to be in charge than the creator?
I will continue to seek His advice and apply what He gives.
Best of all I’ve let Him make Himself at home in me.
When I felt that I had no other choice than to divorced myself from my children’s mom I recall crying out to God, thinking He couldn’t understand…I heard him whisper to my soul, “My child, I was Physically there on earth But I also separated myself from mother earth. I still keep in contact with all my children, you’ve got letters to read (My word) and I call to your heart directly. Listen. Someday we will be reunited. ” (John 14).
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:1-5 NIV
When seeking HIM I was encouraged to read The Book of John in The New Testament…
As I did that and revisit that book this is what I see..
There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:6-14 NIV
This is all found in the first chapter of John. As we look near the end of the book of John we see WHY John wrote these things…
Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
John 20:30-31 NIV
I share this post in hope that others will enjoy and share the same peace when we rely on God’s Word.
Each day, I seek Him.
The Word was first, the Word present to God, God present to the Word. The Word was God, in readiness for God from day one.
John 1:1-2 MSG
