Jeremiah 27:5 I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are on the ground, by My great power and by My outstretched arm, and have given it to whom it seemed proper to Me.
If you can simply believe Genesis 1:1, everything else is easy! In the beginning God... God, our Father, created the universe, the earth, and yes, man. the word created is "bara", to make out of nothing, unlike "asa" to make from pre-existing material. I like to let that settle a bit. Not just men but me. Im a work, designed by God. If it were me, I would arrange some kind of cloning machine, free up my time to vacation or something like that. But thats so impersonal. On His mind and on His heart was you and I. He is really into us! Who has He given His great power to? Any and all those who will receive His Holy Spirit. His choice yet our choice to be chosen! Thank you Lord for being so into me, I dont deserve, I cant comprehend that, but Im loving this. Do great things in me.
