INTRODUCTION
THE BOOK of Genesis tells how the world began. It says God spoke the creation into existence, out of nothing, ex nihilo; that he was not limited in his creative work by any preexistent material but acted in perfect freedom when he made the heavens and the earth. His only limitation, if one can call it that, was his character. This has enormous significance for prayer. Since God freely created the universe by his Word, out of nothing, we can expect God to continue to act in that way. P. T. Forsyth marveled at God's creativity and called him an "infinite opportunist." The universe is not a closed system of cause and effect; it remains open-ended and responsive to God's Word. Nothing is too hard for the Lord. God answers prayer.
This book also affirms, touchingly, that we were made for God because we are made like God, in his image. It pleased him, from the beginning, to create humankind to walk with him in the world and share with him in the care of his creation. Intercessory prayer is on the same order as all the other things we do to share with God in his work. What we do when we pray is no different, fundamentally, than what we do when we plow a field or manage a budget. All of these activities are rooted in Genesis 1:26-28 (see weekend study on C. S. Lewis, the Dignity of Causality, page 336).
When sin entered the picture and the image of God was distorted in us, God did not give up on us, but acted to save and restore his broken and beloved creatures. The first explicit mention of prayer in the Bible comes in this context (see Genesis 4:26). When sin broke our fellowship with God, he kept the door open to call on his name and be restored. The communion with God that made the Garden of Eden such a delight remains God's great passion for his creatures, and will be established one day forever. Prayer will once again be as the air we breathe (see Revelation 21:3).
Genesis GOD SAW ALL THAT HE HAD MADE, AND IT WAS VERY GOOD. (1:31)
The Beginning
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was a formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning - the first day.
6 And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water." 7 So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so. 8 God called the expanse "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning - the second day.
9 And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear." And it was so. 10 God called the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters he called "seas." And God saw that it was good.
11 Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning - the third day.
14 And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth." And it was so. 16 God made two great lights - the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning - the fourth day.
20 And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth." 23 And there was evening, and there was morning - the fifth day.
24 And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
27 So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground." a 2 Or possibly became b 26 Hebrew; Syriac all the wild animals 3 GENESIS 1 29 Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground - everything that has the breath of life in it - I give every green plant for food." And it was so. 31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning - the sixth day.
