“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” – Gen 1:1
Beginning- This is where we see time, age, dates, life spans, pace, seasons, moments all begin, a simple yet profound start to the Book. So often overlooked is this simple word beginning. Who could have ever imagined the moment of the beginning of time, human minds could never think of such a thing.
How can we so simply read about this glorious moment and skip to the next words without a long moment of awe filled wonder and thanksgiving? All that we know began this distinguished moment.
What is even more astonishing is what existed before this moment: A Godhead, Three-in-One, existing fully and complete in love and unity, not lacking anything. God was not created, He had no beginning, no start, no time frame. Ponder on this – the history of God Himself. If you don’t find yourself getting lost in a moment of wonder and awe, I would fear you’re thinking of God in a box.
