The Main Character: God. His Main Priority: You.

When you open the Bible for the first time, once you read the first four words you will be able to identify the main character of Bible: God. His intentions in Genesis revolved around one factor. Everything that is recorded in the Bible afterwards involves His intentions towards this one factor: humanity. Reading Genesis, the book of beginnings, everything that was made was made for humanity. This includes the air, water, mountains, animals, all that we could see is for humanity.It's for you.

Don't feel bad if your using these created items, it's for you. However, it is necessary to recognize that it was God who created all. Adam and Eve failed to recognize it. Both of failed to consistently recognize God was sovereign, and God as their Creator. Therefore, they unappreciated the things that God created for them. Hence, look at their actions towards God. They disobeyed the Creator. And God, since He is just, had to bring justice by bringing judgement.

Even when He did, He loved them. When Adam and Eve sinned they tried to cover themselves up, God still had compassion over them. Even when Adam and Eve disobeyed God, He decided to give them proper clothes.

Look, sometimes you may feel like you messed up, sinned, but today and forever, know that God loves you. He created everything for you. We mess up. Don't think there's no hope but look at God. The cross Jesus Christ died on makes it possible for hope. Lovingly, He forgives us and just wants to cover us in love.

His Success: Greater, Smarter, More Powerful

On A Day In The Knowledge from Above

"When God created the universe, He had no resources to make it. So, he created them (the resources)" -Dad

When I heard him say this, I said to him, "Out of all the quotes I've ever heard and read, this one is my favorite". And it's true. I thought it was gold. I just love how true and powerful and transparent to God's representation it is.

Right now, I've been going through several tribulations. One of them is financing school. I have very few resources to go to school, and it's a bit hard for me to attend school right now, even though I want to earn my Biology degree. And I spoke to my dad about this. And I thought of a story to write. About His successes. I think, oftentimes, when we accomplish something, we think it's us that's accomplished them, but it's not. It's God's accomplishments. In a sense, I guess you could say He vicariously lives through us. We often say, "Oh, we accomplished this". And we could say, "We accomplished this [through His grace]". I've said this before but it didn't really hit me until today that it is actually God's accomplishment. Not mine. Ever. In nothing. Yes, it looks like I've succeeded but I haven't. He has. Through me. And I just thought about how God is victorious. And that's why I want to write a story about His successes, because it shocked me to see that He is always victorious. I knew that already, but it hit me for sure today. It was mind blowing.

"Now thanks [be] unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in every place." -2 Corinthians 2:14

There are more quotes about this subject but I thought this was the one that captured what I just wrote about. If you're interested in reading more, check this out: http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Victory-in-Christ/
