And It Was So

We started our two-week journey through the entire Bible today. This is our 5th annual Bible Read-a-Thon here in DOVE Nairobi. Every time, there is so much more to learn!

The books of Genesis, Job and Exodus, our readings today, are abundantly rich. Starting at the very beginning, I noticed “And it was so” repeated six timesfor the six days of creation as everything God decrees is done. It is like, “case closed;” God says “Let there be”, . . . and that is all it takes. The same decisive sovereignty is seen in Exodus where God pronounces His intention to bring certain plagues, and they manifest every time. It was always done as God declared it would be.”

God’s purposes do prevail!

In a world where evil is so evident and things often feel off balance, that is a powerful truth to absorb and believe.

  1. Genesis 1:3 “And there was light,” is a different wording but similar concept to “And it was so.”
