All I Really Need to Know


I’ve been studying Genesis a lot lately and I continue to be amazed at what I find there.  I have studied it many times before, but God always finds a way to help me experience it in a new way.  I’m starting to get the feeling like this could be a book that sets you up for life.  Kind of like that old saying, “All I really need to know I learned in Kindergarten.”  Yes, I feel it is very important to know the whole Bible and allow all of it to impact your daily life with the Lord.  Please don’t misunderstand me.

I simply want to draw some truths from Genesis to show you how exciting God’s Word can be.  It is vibrant, living, and active in our daily lives, if we allow it to be.  Sometimes we tend to make God’s Word complicated and forget to draw the meaning from it for our lives.  God wants us to seek His Truth, so we can be renewed daily in Him.

“the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”  (Genesis 2:7)

Quality vs. Quantity

Your word I have treasured and stored in my heart, that I may not sin against You. (Psalm 119:11, AMP)

One of the most important things to remember when getting to know God is the quality of your time with Him.  The best place to get to know God is in His Word.

John MacArthur puts it this way, “The Bible is the only completely trustworthy source of knowledge about God.  Man can’t learn all he needs to know about God from human reason, philosophy, or even experience.  God alone is the source of the knowledge about Himself, and He has chosen to reveal Himself in the Bible and in no other book.”

Standing in Awe

Praise the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty.

He wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters.

He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind. He makes winds his messengers, flames of fire his servants. He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.
