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, 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. (Genesis 2:4-5)
The Creator who has no beginning or end; the One who is all powerful, all-knowing and omni-present determined from the beginning that He would work in the world through the man He had formed in His image and likeness. It was this way in the beginning and it remains this way today.
Though He has the power to do whatever He wants whenever He wants to, He chooses to work through His people. Moreover we see, throughout history, that He has never chosen a perfect man but always perfects those that He chooses.
It is our obligation, as His people, to allow this process of perfecting to have its way that we might become the people He has ordained that we be. If we are submitted and faithful to His will, one day, we will be conformed to the image of the Son of God. May we always be willing to deny ourselves that His will may be done.
Blessings and Shalom,
