3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. Gen 1:3-4 (NKJV)
You know, in the Biblical account of creation it tells you how the earth was created. But have you ever really thought about it. I listened to a sermon on this topic last night and it really broadened my understanding of the scriptures in Genesis. God spoke in the first three verses of the Bible. Why? Why did he speak? He is all knowing and all things were made through Him? So why did He speak? Was it just to make it easier on the writer of Genesis to record what happened? Or was there another reason? I think it goes back to the words having power concept. Could it be that words have this power because God intended for it to be that way? I mean, think about it. When you speak positive words that reinforce your goals it effects your thought process itself. Words have the power to change the way you think. If you keep telling someone that they are stupid, and the fact is never disputed eventually they begin to believe it. So if our words (coming from lowly mortal mouths) have that kind of power, why wouldn’t God’s words be powerful enough to create us? I know I’ve said this before, but it usually comes up in cycles. I just thought I would pass it on to you. Just thinking out loud again.
