Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

“In the beginning God created the heaven…” (Gen 1:1)

       We do not find anything existing before God or without God. Indeed, nothing can exist without God. It is a proven fact that any joy, wealth, health or happiness without God or which has not come from God, can never be a true one in the true sense. As God is eternal, anything coming from God will also have a taste of Eternity.

      The first creation of God was ‘heaven’, and not anything else. Only thereafter do we find all the other creations that were pleasant and perfect in all respects. This teaches us the salient truth that first of all heaven should be created in our mind, heart, house – everywhere. Then everything else will be right and perfect in our lives.

         The first thing that God did was ‘creating’, not reforming or repairing. In the life of a sinner too, the first thing God does is to create a new heart, a new mind – “Behold, all things are become new.”

        God’s plan is still the same – first heaven and then the earth. “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness (i.e. heavenly things) and all these things (i.e. earthly things) shall be added unto you” (Matt 6:33).
