Genesis 2:7-9,15-17 Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. The LORD God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed. Out of the ground the LORD God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil... Then the LORD God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it. The LORD God commanded the man, saying, “From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.”
To many, the concept of man being created is heresy because it means that there is someone or something out there that is beyond us and we do not like not knowing or being called inferior. This account of creation is ridiculous to them that would rather put their faith in believing that we are a result of chance, a chance so great that it was the lottery of lotteries because everything as we know it just 'happened'.
What is God's purpose in creation and why would a creator give the keys of creation to the ones He created?
In today's advanced world where man is creating far more complex things than ever before, one of the elements that we try to remove from our creation is control. We like to be able to control what we have created because we do not want to fall prey to our creation and to be able to steer it from our control.
In God's case, He breathed life into the nostrils of humanity and gave us the keys to control our lives with one simple instruction, seek life in fullness in Him and not in the world presently ruled by Satan and his fallen angels. In our wisdom, we chose the world for it was something we could see, touch and taste versus God whom we had to submit to rather than having dominion over.
How interesting it is to study our beginning and know who made us, how we were made, what we were made for and what our purpose is. Genesis is His story, not ours because as much as we can see creation being created and life being breathed, we can see clearly the maker of all of it and glorify Him.
I pray today that you along with me will glorify God for who He is and we would be able to chose life in Him rather than in this world which will lead to our death and destruction.
In His Loving Service,
Deuteronomy 30:19-20 "I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the LORD your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
