4 – Creation and Things That Are Made
9 – Fruit Bearing

Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NKJV) Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor.


Numbers are a big deal in God’s creation story. Numbers are involved in everything. God is speaking to us and wants our attention. He gives us direction, wisdom, knowledge, and revelation about our lives, events, and creation.

Genesis 7:15-16 (NKJV) 15 And they went into the ark to Noah, two by two, of all flesh in which is the breath of life. 16 So those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him; and the Lord shut him in. 

When God decided to flood the world because of the transhuman activity going on around the world, but because God loved His creation, He made sure to keep a male and a female of every species to ensure the world would get repopulated after the waters recede from the flood.

Luke 10:1-4 (NKJV) After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves. Carry neither money bag, knapsack, nor sandals; and greet no one along the road.”

Just as God was able to repopulate the world, He gave us Jesus to atone for our sins! Jesus taught His disciples and then sent them out into the world to gather the sheep. I am so grateful for King Jesus! He willingly sacrificed His life for us! Man, our God is good!

Declaration: I will continue the work Jesus started by bravely gathering His sheep. I know He is coming back, and until then, I will do my part to help collect the lost sheep.
