“…Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?... Job 38:4 AKJV.
The answer to that question is… “We weren’t.
God created, out of what we would perceive as nothing, an island of earth and water, living plants and animals… and human beings, and He caused it all to function within a framework of law and time… within the timeless infinity of His existence.
There was nothing… and then there was something.
We never were and then we were.
It is… we are… the result of His imagination and power.
He is the original and only owner and His ways have been present, in any work of worth man has done…from the day he began as God’s steward and drifted into doing things in his own power.
Where were we indeed?
And Who… after all… is the Author of what is and always has been right and good… from the beginning… even though there have been many plagiarists along the way?
Father… the good that is You and Your Ways have been from the beginning and remain.
There is no other source.
Men should foot note their efforts, giving You credit, for the good they are trying to achieve.
May we not be hindered in our praise and worship of You any time, any place because our focus is not on You … but may it be trained on and remain on… You alone.
There is only One Good, always and ever… and that is You.
May You be glorified Abba, Dear Father.
In Yeshua’s name we pray.
May God’s love be in us all.
