In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (Genesis 1:1).
Appropriately God and Moses began Israel’s instructions concerning life and God’s wisdom and right to regulate that life with this verse. It is truth fundamental to understanding all things and especially to possessing all the blessings God intended for His creatures.
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created (Revelation 4:11).
God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that He is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though He needed any thing, seeing He giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; (Acts 17:24-25).
Surely having made man, He knows what is best for man. In that He created all, it is wisdom and pleasure to submit to Him. Consider Psalm 100; Ecclesiastes 12:1,13,14 and Colossians 1:15-18. HJS
