3 Things in Genesis that speaks to us today!

Genesis-overview.jpg
 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day” and the darkness “night.” And evening passed and morning came, marking the first day. Gen 1:1-5 (NLT)

 

God never created anything without first developing an environment where that particular thing could thrive.

 Everything that God created had a proper place to reside.

 When God reveled something new, He sealed it with

“It is good!”


When things come into alignment with God's design, it is very good!

1. Without God, things are formless, empty, and dark. 

 

The earth was formless, empty, and dark UNTIL God spoke life into existence.

 There is nothing in this WORLD that can fill a person to the point of real satisfaction, joy, happiness, and fulfillment.

ONLY, a life filled with God’s presence will satisfy a person completely.

There have been many who have searched, entertained, pursued, and paid for a life that would bring them JOY, HAPPINESS, and FULFILLMENT just to end up disappointed.

Some turned to God!

Some don’t, and they end their life to escape the emptiness and darkness! 

Some struggle to find fulfillment through shallow friends and material STUFF!


Some struggle to find fulfillment through shallow friends and material STUFF!

 

With God:

There is LIGHT

There is LIFE

2. When God’s formula is followed, everything falls into the right order. 

 

God created the land before he created the trees, the plants, and the water; the land gave these a place to exist.

 God will never put something in a POSITION without first preparing the environment in which it will FUNCTION.


God's formula enables His creations to fucntion PROPERLY.

God has a formula for your LIFE.

God has created a PLAN for you.

  • He will never ASK a person to fulfill something where He hasn’t already developed the environment.
  • He will never ask you to do something that HE will not equip you for.
  • You can be a GOOD Mom!  
    • He placed a desire in your heart to express a love for your child that no one else can. The little things will develop as you go.

 

  • You can be a GOOD dad!
    • Follow God’s plan on raising your kids and help them come to know His love. Maintain a godly home and steer it in alignment with God’s word and your kids will respect you and love you.

  •  You can be a GOOD wife!
    • Respect and love your husband the way the Church loves and honors Christ. Things will fall into order.

  •  You can be a GOOD husband!
    • Love your wife just as Christ loves the Church. Things will fall into order.


God has a plan and formula for our lives.
When we follow God's plan, everthing comes into ORDER!

  

3. When God’s plan is carried out, the outcome is that it becomes fruitful and multiplies.

 

The fish in its intended environment thrived and multiplied

The vegetation in its intended environment thrived and multiplied

The animals in their intended environment thrived and multiplied

Humans in their intended environment thrived and multiplied

When we follow God’s plan for our lives it doesn’t exempt us from:

  • Problems
  • Making mistakes

  • Having bad days

  • Feeling inadequate

 

But, following God’s plan will allow us to GROW in knowledge and wisdom, give us strength to GROW during resistance, get better, and have some WINS in our life!


Success will multiply in our LIVES when God's plan is carried out!

 

Listen, God looks at you and says, “It is GOOD!”

He created you to be YOU!

He created you to KNOW Him and have a full life!

He wants you to operate in the ORDER in which he created you!

He created you to carry out His plan for your LIFE!

And when you do, your life will be fruitful and multiply!
