“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
The first verse in the Bible is very well known, even by those that do not profess to be Christians.
There are no coincidences within God’s Word, so it was not by chance that the very first four words are “In the beginning God”. It all starts with Him!
In his book “Delighting In God”, A.W. Tozer writes, “We must begin with God.” What great advice that is!
Everything we do must begin with God, and until we ask for His permission and His help, we have not truly begun.
Have you ever set out to do something, yet failed to ask God for permission first, much less for His help to accomplish the task? If we are honest, we’ve all been guilty of it. Maybe we finished the job, maybe we were unable to, but how much better would it have been if we had the Creator of the universe to support us in our endeavor? He is willing and waiting, yet so often we forget or do not even bother to ask.
Our creative process is in vain if we do not yield ourselves to Him Who created us. Seek God’s face for His direction before putting thought into action. The results are sure to be far better than if we were to do it on our own.
For without Him, we are nothing.
