TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
Regardless of what’s going on around you, or inside of you, focus on Him. Align yourself with His thoughts, declare His Truths and stand on His promises. Then watch and pray.
IN THE BEGINNING…
God can be very direct, and I like that about Him. Check out the first four words of Genesis so I can make my point.
“In the beginning God…”
He just lays it out. “I started it all.” Those four words make this book illegal in every communist country in the world and most muslim nations as well.
“In the beginning God” is profound. “In the beginning God” is a game changer. “In the beginning God” is a worldview completely different from the spirit of this world. If you don’t get anything else out of Genesis, you need to get “In the beginning God.”
The book of Genesis goes through this incredible story of creation by the Word, it ends with these five words.
“…in a coffin in Egypt.”
– Genesis 50:26
The first four words are the best that can possibly be and the last four are as bad as can be. The story goes from great to horrible. We’re not just talking about dead, we’re talking about dead in a coffin in Egypt dead. That is some serious dead.
What happened? You and I entered into the picture.
What an amazing capacity you and I have to mess up amazing things. We can take something that works, then partner with the devil to ruin it all. It doesn’t have to be that way.
The creator Word became flesh. The Bible says He dwelt among us and brought us life, which was the light of man. Though many did not recognize the light, you and I did! Because we have faith in Jesus’ sacrifice and resurrection, every day for us is “in the beginning God!”
Will you let Him give you a brand new beginning today and every day afterward? It’s a much better deal than that coffin in Egypt!
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
– John 1:14
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO START AGAIN! GIVE YOUR MESS OVER TO GOD AND HEAR HIM SAY, “IN THE BEGINNING GOD…”
