Genesis 2:4–5 (NKJV) “4 This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5 before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground;”
In the book of Genesis we see the history of the heavens and the earth. Thus we begin to understand the history of the creation of the world since none of us were around to see it, experience it or record it on our Go Pro’s!
History is correctly defined as His Story. In other words, the story of how the world came to be belongs to God since He is our maker.
Of course rather than just knowledge of how we came to be, the Bible has powerful lessons for us to learn from. Romans 15:4 (NKJV) “4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.”
One of the best lessons we could learn from history is not to make the same mistakes of the past. We can learn to not repeat the mistakes of Moses for not representing God correctly, Miriam for speaking against Moses for having a Ethiopian wife, King David for committing adultery and plotting Uriah’s death and so many others.
On the other side of the coin is to repeat the successes that we see in the history of the Bible. Moses for being the most humble man that ever lived, Miriam who prophesied the word of the Lord, King David for being a man after God’s own heart and of course Jesus Christ for living a perfect life and being the perfect example for us to follow.
The Bible is full of His story and I am excited to see what story God will write with our lives as we continue to love Jesus with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and to love others as we love ourselves. 2 Corinthians 3:3 (NKJV) “3 clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.”
