Life is God
Have you ever heard the phrase ‘Life is God”? What does this phrase mean to you? Does it mean life originates from God? Does it mean the very substance of life comes from God? Would life exist if there were no God? How could life exist if there were no God? These are some serious questions to ponder.
Life is God! Life comes from God and God alone. In Genesis chapter two, God finished creation. God revealed the history of creation. This chapter summarizes the events included in creation. God formed man and breathed into him the breath of life. Just think about the ‘breath of life.’ Breath is life and it came from God in the beginning of time. God is the source of life, help, and strength. Help from God is the source of ultimate strength. Are you trying to live apart from God’s help and wisdom? You cannot live without the Lord God.
On the seventh day God ceased or stopped all His creation. God blessed the seventh (Sabbath) day and made it holy. The creation of plants, rivers, livestock/animals and man completed His work. Man was told to tend and keep the garden. Man was given the privilege by God to name animals. God gave man one command which was not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. God gave His command and expected obedience. Obedience was expected from the beginning. Are you obeying the commands of God? Are you keeping the Sabbath day holy? Are you resting in the Lord?
God said it was not good for man to be alone. The foundation for marriage was established in the beginning, ‘man shall leave mother and father and cleave to wife – become one flesh. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.” Genesis 2:24
God created everything and made the earth pleasant for man (suitable for living). God provided man’s every need. He provided man with a helpmate because it was not good for man to be alone (woman helpmate). He gave all food/trees for food except for one.
God gave man all he needed: food from the garden, water source, and a helpmate. They were right where God wanted them to be and felt no shame.
You are all powerful and you demonstrated your power by creating everything that exists. You are all knowing in that you brought life into existence from nothing. You are the creator! Thank the Lord for providing what we needed in creation.
