Created In The Image of God: And Then There Were Two

In the previous blog post (“Created in the Image of God: The Power of Our Words“), we left off watching ‘adam, as he named the animals that God had created and brought to him.  Would you join me once again in the Garden? I have been sitting here for many days, observing, asking questions of Holy Spirit, and listening to what He drops in my mind and heart. Please pull up a rock and sit with me as the scene continues to unfold:  No words can fully describe what ‘adam experienced while working side by side with his Creator, as he developed a close bond with the creatures that he had just named. Any one of us would have gladly traded places with him.   And yet … ‘adam still felt that yearning in his heart that had not been fulfilled by any one of God’s amazing creatures, a companion who…

Created in the Image of God: The Power of Our Words

As you may remember, we left off at the last post, “A Special Creation” with this statement from God: “It is not good for the man to be alone, so I will create a companion for him, a perfectly suited partner.”  (Genesis 2:18 VOICE) The Eternal One, Creator of all heaven and earth, the One who is omniscient (all-knowing), full of all wisdom and understanding – this One’s next step catches us totally off-guard. Look at what comes next: Genesis 2:19-20  (ESV) So this was my question: Why?  Why did God take time for the naming of the animals by ‘adam when He knew that what He was about to do was to complete the special creation of ‘adam (human being) with the creation of woman? I asked Holy Spirit about this. There may be some other aspects to His purpose and timing, but there was one answer to my…

A Special Creation

One day the Eternal God scooped dirt out of the ground, sculpted it into the shape we call human, breathed the breath that gives life into the nostrils of the human, and the human became a living soul.”          (Genesis 2:7, the Voice) Close your eyes and imagine with me.  On the sixth day of creation, the Son of God knelt down, plunging His hands deep into the rich, living soil of the earth that He had just created. In wisdom, He drew out of that soil the elements and minerals of which we are all made and lovingly formed the first human being.  As He worked, He thought about you…. and me…. every person who would ever exist because of this one creative act.  And He smiled.  This Potter molded not only the exterior of ‘adam, as a human artist would, but He, with the finest detail, designed blood cells,…

The Beginning: Genesis 1

“Let’s start at the very beginning, A very good place to start” As I contemplated where to start, these lyrics came to mind. You may recognize them from the song, “Do-Re-Mi” from the musical, Sound of Music. To understand and succeed in our journey in this earthly realm and in the realm of the Kingdom of God, we must understand what happened in Genesis 1-3. It is foundational. May we look through the lens of Holy Spirit as we enter through the door of this Biblical account. A dream I had a few years back ended with me as a toddler. I had been given my “father’s glasses” to wear. As I sat there in the dream, now wearing glasses that were way too big for me, I realized that others might laugh at me, or just think it was “cute”, but I knew that it was an honor and…
