So, I decided to go back and read the Bible from the beginning to the end. My reasoning for this is because I wanted to start being able to analyze the Bible more rather than just reading it and then closing it. I want to be able to catch things that I would not be able to by just reading it once, I honestly want to learn and grow with God and what better way to do so by starting from the beginning where it all began anyways? So, today I read Genesis chapter one, because I’m going to read a chapter everyday analyze it and meditate on it all day.
So in Genesis chapter one it literally talked about the beginning of the earth and how God formed it and all that He made, and how it was all so, so, so good. As I kept reading I started to catch little things that I had not even noticed or even tried to analyze to understand the deeper meaning of the passage. It was like revelations were coming to me, and the pastors or preachers I listened to who might have spoke about parts of this chapter I was reading, were finally coming together and making sense.
Furthermore, I decided to bless you guys with what I learned as I read Genesis chapter one. “And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.” This lets me know God’s presence is everywhere, that he is not human like, but spiritual. That He is powerful enough to be anywhere and everywhere all at one time, and that He is the creator of everything. God made all creations, everything that He made was good. I learned that God is very detailed in what He made during creation, He takes His time with everything. Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness.” As I kept rereading this I realized God was having a conversation with Himself. If you’re a Christian or believer then you’ve probably heard of the saying The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and this was shows relationships between all three that are one.
This tells me God made us in His image, because He wanted us to be like Him in ALL ways. I believe it shows me God’s desire for us to have life and that He gives a purpose in this life, so for anyone who feels like they have no purpose, don’t believe it God sees so much value in you!!! But then as I kept reading it talks about how God created man and female, so this means we are equal with different roles God assigned us with. Then God blesses us and everything on the earth, He wants us to be prosperous and to flourish. God clearly makes His intentions known for and to us. Everything that God makes or touches is so good.
