Home :: Bible Studies :: In the Beginning, God
“In the beginning God created…..” (Genesis 1:1). “In the beginning was the Word….” (John 1:1).
Read: Genesis 1:1-2; John 1:1-4; Hebrews 1:10-12.
What Is God Saying?
God was in the beginning. God is not to be equated with all things. He made all things when the earth was without form and void.
He transcends all created things because by Him all things were made. The Word that became flesh, our Lord Jesus Christ, was with God in the beginning. In fact, He was God and is God.
He is the Source of all life and the life He gives is the light of men. The fact of creation and the gift of light are closely associated.
He who was in the beginning is the Source of all light and true Life now.
How Does This Apply to Us?
For us God is the beginning, the true beginning. Without God there is no beginning for anything worthwhile. God, who was in the beginning, can take the disorder and emptiness of our lives and create something entirely new.
He can recreate.
He is the God of all beginning ….and of all beginning again. Jesus Christ who was in the beginning then can provide for us a new beginning now. Each day with Him is a new beginning.
Let us come to prayer with tip-toe eagerness to see what God has for us in new adventure and joyful discovery today. Every day is a new beginning with God, and it should be for us.
He is the beginning of everything.
He is behind all beginning again.
We look for Him to begin something wonderful for us today.
Pray With Me
Moving On In The Life Of Prayer
We should keep going back to the God of all beginnings.
When we say “Amen”, let it be with the glad conviction that Jesus is the Author and the Finisher of our Faith. He who begins a good work in us won’t stop His work until it is finished. Can we say “Amen” to that?
Is it possible that our “Amens” have worn thin through custom?
“Amen” should never be said carelessly or thoughtlessly.
In 1 Corinthians 1:20 we read, “All the promises of God find their yes in Him (Jesus Christ). That is why we utter Amen through Him to the glory of God.”
NO wonder we say “Amen” at the end of our prayers.
So… in the beginning, God.
In the end, God.
In between, the privilege and the power of prayer.
