"Let There Be Me!"

We can't take a breath without God.  I woke up this morning thinking of this.  The action of filling our lungs with air is under His control, as is the edict that we continue living and breathing for a set number of days.

The energy we save and use and sell all comes from Abba's body; His very being is light and power and resource, and He allows certain components of Himself to be harnessed and concentrated inventively for the betterment of His creation.  That's amazing.

I love being amazed by Him - it's an unending fountain.  Let me share some of those thoughts with you, beloved.

For instance, I thought about the meaning of these two scripture verses:
"Then God said, 'Let there be light', and there was light." (Genesis 1:3)
"This then is the message which we have heard of Him and declare unto you, that God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all." (1 John 1:5)
Since God Himself IS light, and the creation of heaven and earth started with an all-powerful command from His lips, it hits my spirit that everything in our world began by Daddy simply and wondrously saying, Let there be ME! and He imparted Himself to all of creation - eradicating all voids and darkness - so that it would exist, subsist, and consist of/by His great power, because He is the "Self-Existent One"!


Scripture confirms that "Light" is not a thing, it's a Person! So on that day (long-since pressed into the annals of our history like fragrant flower petals), the Eternal, Sovereign, God of the Universe - the Maker and Creator and SOURCE of everything good and perfect - said, Let there be ME! and our world and cosmos began.  Amen!

Also, we know from scripture that Jesus Christ Himself IS "Life" and that He and Holy Spirit were not merely present with Yahweh at the foundation of the earth, but participated in the creation of man.  So yet again, the Lord imparted Himself as the "Breath of Life" into Adam, who he formed from the dust of the ground, and the living soul of our bloodlines took root upon the earth.  Isn't that fabulous?!

I love beholding Daddy in these ways, allowing His Holy Spirit to illuminate truth and communicate confidently in Power and Praise!  I stand in awe, blessing His Holy Name and delighting in sharing joyous adulation with all of you.

Impart Yourself to me, O, Lord - in the resource of Your power in light, love, and breath to my every circumstance - that I will praise Your Mighty Name and give GLORY unto You all the days that I live!  In Jesus' Precious Name I pray.  Amen.

Blessing Our God Who IS "Eternity",
Daddy's Girl
