My daughter and I painted masterpieces a few evenings ago. Ok, really, we just had fun. It feels great to be creative. In Genesis, we learn about God’s creative work.

Genesis 1:1: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Did you know that the verb used in Genesis to describe God’s creation is never applied to humans? It’s a true “something from nothing” creation. Only God as creator (Elohim) can take nothing and transform it into something. We began with paper, paint, and a paintbrush. He spoke it into existence.

Be encouraged! The God that can create the world by his word can create something beautiful in your life.
