John 1:1,2 – “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.”
Do you ever stop and ponder just how big Jesus really is? I mean truly. Jesus is “the Word” (see vs. 14 of this chapter). He was with God in the beginning. The beginning of what, you may ask. The real beginning. The point where time began. The place in time where all things were created.
In my notes that I have scrolled in the sides of my Bible, I have that this word “with” as found in “the Word was with God” means “standing face to face” in the Greek. So Jesus was standing face to face with God when creation was going on. In fact, He was God when all this was going on. That is so hard for me to wrap my puny brain around. But hey, that’s what faith is for right? There are things in this world that I am told exist that I cannot see or understand and yet I believe them. Like atoms. Really? Electrons? Hmm…. But we believe these things when a fallible human tells us these things. Why would we not believe God when He tells us things? Things written in a book that has been around for thousands of years. A book that men have died to protect. Sounds legitimate to me!
And this God who created all things has a vested interest in you. Do you truly understand and appreciate that? I know I don’t. This Word, this God, cares that I am safe, healthy, provided for, loved, troubled, confused and any other emotion that you can come up with. He cares.
So today, princess, if you are feeling stressed and brought low by the circumstances in your life, remember this, the Creator of the sky cares about you. If He can create a way to keep this big ball of dirt and rock spinning at just the right angle, He can right the toy top-like atmosphere in your life. But, you have to trust Him to do so.
