Genesis 1:1 – 2:3 > Situation The magnificent story of The Beginning revealed majesty, and love. Yet the most humbling, puzzling, and awe-inspiring act took place when God breathed the breath of life into humanity.
Observation, God demonstrated power and love by creating. With only a spoken word God created everything around us. Then, with loving care, he formed Adam our of ground.
How to listen to God. First He spoke by direct revelation.
By his Spirit, He spoke to the spirit of men like Abraham, who one day heard God directly tell him to leave the land in which he was living and go unto a land that God would show him: Genesis 12:1-3.
Now the Lord said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family, and land that I will show you I will make you a great nation; I will bless you, And your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you and Inwill curse him who curse you. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Second, the Bible says God spoke through dreams. A good example is evident in the experience of Daniel, to who God revealed His world destiny in a series of dreams.
With one decision, history began. Existence became measurable. Out of nothing came light. Out of light came day. Then came the sky and earth. And on this earth? A mighty hand went to work. Canyons were carved. Oceans were dug. Mountains erupted out of flatlands. Stars were flung. A universe sparkled. Our sun became just one of millions. Our galaxy became just one of thousands. Planets invisible tethered to sun’s roared through space at breakneck speeds. Stars blazing with heat that could melt our planet in seconds. The hand behind it was mighty. And with this might, he created. As naturally as a bird sings and fish swims, he created. Just as an artist can’t not paint and a runner can’t not run, he couldn’t not create. He was the Creator. Through and through, he was the Cre. A tireless dreamer and designer. From the pallet of the Ageless Artist came inimitable splendors. Before there was a person to see it, his creation was pregnant with wonder. Mundaneness found no home in his universe. Probe deep within him. Explore every corner. Search every angle. Love is all you find. Go to the beginning of every decision he has made and you’ll find it. Go to the end of every story he was told and you’ll see it. Love
