“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
We learned in elementary school that every sentence must have a subject and a verb. So, let’s take note of the anchor sentence for the entire Bible. Notice the subject is GOD. The Hebrew name for God in Genesis chapter one is Elohim, meaning the Strong Creator. Elohim is the source of everything. Elohim is not only strong and powerful beyond our imagination—Elohim is the God who creates something out of nothing.
“In the beginning, God (the subject) created (the verb) …” Interestingly, the Hebrew word for create was used only with GOD as the subject of the sentence. Only GOD created the endless skies and magically hung the sun and stars for light. Only GOD created the whole magnificent world and every creature in it. Only GOD created man from the dust of the ground and breathed life into his bones. What a God is Elohim, the One who alone created the world!
Elohim is a God of action…when HE is the subject, creation happens!
So, what if I made GOD the subject of every sentence of my life?
