Today we go deeper in our series on foundations.  We recognize the foundation for our lives is God’s Word.  And the foundation for God’s Word is Genesis.

Join me as we take an in depth look at so many truths that pop out as we jump into Genesis 1.  The Bible starts with these words, “In the beginning, God.”  With these first few words we come across this truth: the fact that God exists is self-evident.

  • Psalm 14:1 it says, “The fool says in his heart there is no God.”
  • Five chapters later in Psalm 19:1 we read, “The heavens declare the glory of God.”
  • Romans 1:19,20 says, “because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.
  • Ecclesiastes 3:11b says God has put “eternity in our hearts”.

Therefore, the question isn’t, “Does God exist?” But “What is God like?”

From the get go we begin to see what God is like.  Look at the very fourth word in the Bible, “God”.  That word “God” is Elohim in the original language. . .and interestingly enough that word is plural.  From the first words of scripture we have the mystery of the Trinity – the singular plural.

And the 5th word in Genesis 1:1 is “created.”  God is Creator.  In this week’s video we talk about God as light, how God creates, and that as Creator He gets to define everything that He creates, even the concept of a day itself.  Check it out!

This week pray this prayer, “God remove every false concept I have of you and replace it with the truth.”  I’m excited to see what fresh insights He gives all of us into what He is really like!

About 15 years ago our heavenly Father began encouraging me in my role as His son and out of that in my role as a father, both biologically and spiritually. Through multiple encounters on my journey God has revealed His heart as my Father and affirmed my sonship in Him. Out of this has come His call to fully embrace who He has created me to be as a father and to share that with others.
