The Immanent and Intimate Creator
 Genesis 2:4-9

You may know and remember singing a song that goes, God is so big, so strong, and so mighty, there's nothing my God cannot do, for you. These lyrics are all-together true! God is all powerful, all knowing, and everywhere. He is beyond comprehension and no one can fathom his wisdom or his ways. He is the wonderful, majestic, infinite Creator, who holds the universe together. Yet, God is not to be completely described in these terms alone.

Starting in Genesis 1:26 we read about a Creator who made humanity in his own image, and as the pinnacle of all his works. Then in chapter 2 we have another account of creation, one in which God becomes very personal and gets his hands dirty. Verse 7 describes God forming man from the dust of the ground and then breathing into his nostrils the breath of life. In verse 18 he declares that it is not good for man to be alone, thus he causes him to fall into a deep sleep, so that he can create a woman from his own flesh. This is an intimate account of God's masterpiece in making humanity. He does not just speak the world into being, but He comes down and forms us with his own hands and then walks among us in the garden.

In these first two chapters of Genesis we see both a transcendent and immanent side of God. Together these two depictions form who he is and how he manifests himself to us and to the world. We read that he is the one who made the stars, the seas, and the mountains, but he is also the one who formed the heart and gave us the breath of life. He is the one who set everything in motion, but also the one who knows every hair on our heads. He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, but he is also the one who loved us so much that he humbled himself and died on a cross for our sins.

Impressed? Amazed? This is the heart and character of our Creator! This week, take time to read through his Word and try to grasp his incredible power and wonderful deeds. Go outside and marvel at his beautiful creation. Remember how much he loves you, cares for you, and wants to be in relationship with you. What an awesome God!
