Dailies~in His Word
September 2019
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.  And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to give testimony of the light that all men might believe through him. John 1:1-6 DRA version
The way this book and chapter in the Bible begins is precious to me because it introduces John. Tells us who he was, and what he did that made him important pretty much the way it introduces God to us. In the beginning; so many good things happened there.
Stop for a moment and think about your beginnings, where were you before you came to know the living God? Then where were you when you first realized you were loved and loved Him back?   
In the beginning of my salvation quest I walked alone. I sought the answer to where we go when we died, I sought the answer as to who created us and who this baby Jesus was that somehow died on a cross in all the churches on t.v. really was. Then Jesus called out my name and I became a Christian. That’s the short of it, but reality is He was with me all along my journey just as He was with John from the moment his parents found out about him. He was there in the beginning and He is with us now too!
That same God, Jesus, Father, Jehovah, Abba; He loves us!  Someone pointed out that Ecclesiastes chapter 6 is a good read today, and I was going to write about it but in order to write about it there has to be a beginning in that book we read that things are good and bad and happen or don’t but over all it is good to love God and follow His Word, and His ways. I found a strange connection to John 1:1 today because both Solomon in all his wisdom and John knew God and did what He said for them to do. They did not walk the same path, they did not live in the same timeline but yet God moved through and with them in a mighty way.  In the same way He can and will move through us, though maybe a little different from one another He will use us each in the way in which He chooses as we chose to follow His lead.
How awesome is that? The same God; who gave Solomon wisdom, and told John who Jesus was so he could share with those around him… That same God who taught Paul that he was no longer a Saul, but one who could see the Light and share Him with others, teaches us each day to grow closer, to live a life pleasing to Him. 
I am going to stop here today and give you time to think on this… until tomorrow’s Daily…
Heavenly Father, thank you… for everything, for every person in our lives, for all, make us worthy of it all, in Jesus’ name, amen.
