Scripture:- Genesis 1:1-31
Topic:- The Creation Of God 
Text:- Genesis 1:31
His gaze stretches through greening countryside, seeing in the distance flowery hills. While walking hopefully, feel the gentle breeze gently stroke her hair.
Talk to the breeze: “Breeze, you seem to be who I am looking for so much; you caress my hair; you kiss my face; you have the perfume of green bushes! If I could see your face, I would kiss it; if I could touch your hair, make long braids and decorate them with the flowers of our garden! “
After walking in the dream through the meadows of paradise, Adam stopped while contemplating the surrounding landscape. He admired not seeing the effect of the breeze on the flowering branches. But how, if he felt it warmly on his face?
Then he began to wake up from his dream. Still with his eyes closed, he remembered the moment when, sleepy, he lay on the Eternal’s chest. Would the breeze be the touch of His hands?
With this question he opened his eyes and was excited to see a pretty woman who, with scented hands, caressed her face with love. It was the breeze of his dream; the promise of a Creator who just wanted to make him happy.
Now Adam was complete, for he had Eve, who was flesh of his flesh and bones of his bones. Taking her by the hand, Adam invited her for a walk of unforgettable surprises. He would show his companion the beauties of his home.
Sensitized Eva stopped at every step, attracted by the flowers that exhaled soft perfumes; for the birds that sang happy songs; for the animals that followed them submissive; by the vegetation of rich nuances; through the crystalline waters of the river of life that flowed cascade from Mount Zion.
Everything in paradise was perfect and beautiful, but nothing equaled the human being, created in the image of God. They turned to each other in admiration and caresses.
Soaked by that love, they remained until sunset. With delight, the young couple began to contemplate the setting sun that, through pink rays, colored the sky in a beautiful tree.
It was the sixth day that came to an end, giving rise to the hours of a special day: Saturday. That day, in its meaning, would be solemn for all subjects of the Eternal, for its dawn would bring victory to the kingdom of light.
The sun, which on the sixth day had brightened nature with its brightness and heat, was hidden, leaving it in cold shadows. The cheerful birds, silencing their trills, looked for their nests while the other animals were collected.
Only the couple remained motionless, trying to see, in the last flash that went out on the horizon, the hope of a new dawn.
They investigated the sense of darkness when, among the bushes, they saw a beautiful place, whose silver rays bathed in silver rays bathed the nature in soft luminosity.
The whole sky was illuminated by the glow of the stars. Admired, they discovered that the night was only darkness when they looked down.
Adam and Eve in their innocence did not know that that night symbolized the bleak future of humanity. When they understood it, they would be comforted to contemplate the brightness of the heavens: the place would speak of hope and the twinkling stars would attest to the interest of the hosts of light in clearing their moral darkness, giving encouragement to sinners.
But only those who, diverting their eyes from the earth, contemplated the high heavens would be enlightened. After contemplating the sky for some time in its luminosity, the couple remembered the beauties of paradise, turned their eyes, seeking to see them.
They were, however, hidden in the middle of the shadows. How much they wished for dawn, for only he would bring paradise!
Before the longing of the human heart, the Eternal appeared in the midst of darkness, returning to the couple the joy of meeting again in a colorful garden.
Bathed in soft light, they were now walking through green and flowery meadows. The brightness of the Creator woke up the nature where they passed, coloring and brightening everything around.
Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, You have created me wonderfully and fearfully, help me to fulfill Your purpose for my life henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Have A Glorious Thursday!
