I saw something in a new way from today's entry in "Morning Moments with Bob Yandian"! It is called "Be Fruitful" and used this Scripture: Genesis 1:28 NKJV.
28 Than God blessed them, and God said to them Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.
Then he goes on to say this:
"Imagine being Adam. Your spirit has just been created by God and your body formed out of the dust of the ground. At the time God breathes into your nostrils and you draw your first breath, you are a full grown person. You have never gone through the process of birth and growing up. Next of all, you have never had a thought. Your mind is a clean slate."
Can you imagine that? Have you ever even thought about that? There was no sin yet. Everything in the garden was perfect. God just breathed His very life into you and the only influence you have in and on your life is HIM! What a tremendous time that must have been! BUT, Adam also had no idea what sin would do! He had never observed disobedience and the result of it! He had no opportunity to learn from the mistakes of others! The next time you are tempted to be angry with Adam for putting us in this predicament, remember that! I am so very thankful to be alive at this time when we have so much Wisdom and knowledge of the Word of God available to us! Don't take the Word lightly! Remember that His Word IS Truth (John 17:17)! Make it YOUR top priority! Here is Hillsong with "Hope Of The World". That would be JESUS! Amen!
Shalom in Him!
