God’s creative power and God’s pre-eminence. John 1:3-4

Nature picture of butterflies and mice. God's creative power and pre-eminence John 1:3-4
Share

The Bible verse of the day is an inspirational Bible verse of faith.

All things were made through him. Without him was not anything made that has been made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1:3-4

This Bible verse is found in John’s Gospel. It comes after:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

These scripture verses speak of God’s creative power and His preeminence and preexistence before our known Universe.

Whatever you may believe about the formation of the Universe and how it was made, the Bible says that God was before all things, even before the earth was made. I believe there is something significant about the word light in this context too.

In Genesis 1 it says:

God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.  God saw the light, and saw that it was good. God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light “day”, and the darkness he called “night”. There was evening and there was morning, the first day. (Genesis 1:3-5)

The fascinating thing about this well-know Bible scripture about creation is that God created light before He created the sun, moon and stars. Is this initial light at creations something different from the usual light of our known physical Universe?! Could this light me the glory of God? It is something I have thought about. I really do not have the answer but I am sure that the answer is something glorious and wonderful – perhaps it is the fabric of Heaven? I will leave that to the experts to ‘enlighten’ us (no pun intended!).

Where is says, In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. (John 1:3), I wonder if this is the same light as described in Genesis – the light that initiated the creation of the Universe and Earth.

I know the plans I have for you… Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Scripture on encouragement. Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

This Bible verse today is a scripture on encouragement and hope.

Sometimes, it is easy to think that God has forgotten us when our lives are not how we would like them to be.  If life seems mundane and full of worries sometimes we can wonder what God has planned for us.  However, as you go about your daily lives you never know what impact a few words you may say could have upon another’s life.  Just be diligent to do good whenever you have an opportunity however small and entrust your day to Him. We need to be faithful with the small things before God can trust us with large responsibilities.  Never give up believing that God is a good God and His ways are perfect.  Follow Him, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.  They will certainly be plans for welfare, not for evil to give you a future and hope.  Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow but trust in Him.

But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God … James 1:5

James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all men generously and without reproaching, and it will be given him.

But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach; and it will be given to him. James 1:5

This Bible verse of the day is an inspirational quote about wisdom that is great to memorise.

This is a scripture of great encouragement whenever we are at a loss to know what to do about anything. Do you need help in running your business?  Do you need help in parenting your children?  Do you need help to deal with a particularly difficult work colleague?  Maybe you and your spouse are not getting on.  This scripture from the letter of James will help you.

This promise from the Word of God is that God will generously give us wisdom whenever we ask. What is wisdom?  I believe that it is an inspired insight from God for a particular situation.

These Bible verses on wisdom is particularly rich in detail from the Amplified Bible:

If any of you lacks wisdom [to guide him through a decision or circumstance], he is to ask of [our benevolent] God, who gives to everyone generously and without rebuke or blame, and it will be given to him. But he must ask [for wisdom] in faith, without doubting [God’s willingness to help], for the one who doubts is like a billowing surge of the sea that is blown about and tossed by the wind. James 1:5-6 (Amplified)

It’s important not to be double-minded but clear in what you are asking for in faith and expectancy knowing that God will supply all the help and insight you ask.
