Creation from the Start

Today I started a new Bible reading plan. Its called Top Verses to Memorize. Today was day one of 443. Today's verse started us right at the start Genesis 1:1.

Gen1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Looking at this verse I wondered why this verse was so important to memorize. I mean its pretty plain, but then I realized there are lots of people out there who don't even believe this verse. So to start off right, and to learn properly its important to understand the depth of this verse. God created the heavens and the earth. Before God there was nothing. There was a void. Just God, and nothing more. I know, some people are thinking, then where did God come from? This is one question I have no answer for. The only thing we know is that God in an uncreated being, and that he exist outside of time. So through trusting in the entire rest of the Bible, we have to trust that God not only exist, but he is an infinite being who can create and destroy as he wills. And the only way there can be a beginning is if he created it. So this verse is so important, because it sets up not only the story of creation, but the evolution of God's plans and God's creation.

So until tomorrow, meditate on this verse and ask God to reveal something new to you through it.
