In the Beginning—God

"In the beginning God" Genesis 1:1

In the beginning of the world's history—GOD. In the beginning of all true science—GOD. In the beginning of all right philosophy—GOD. In the beginning of all right thinking—GOD. In the beginning of all right living—GOD. In the beginning of every day—GOD. In the beginning of every night—GOD.

To put God first is to have our priorities right. It is God's rightful place, therefore we do right to place Him first.

To put God second is rebellion, a challenge to His Sovereignty and Sceptre. He is first—therefore He will be first, He shall be first. He must be first in my life. "In the beginning God."

Parting thought: "There can be no true beginning but by the Unbeginning Beginning"—Ian Paisley.
