Verse of the Day – Genesis 2:7

…the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

Genesis 2:7

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

We are God’s creation, each of us. He fashioned and formed our original ancestor out of the dust of the ground. He molded and created each of us while we were in our mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13-16). Like Adam, God fills us with his breath and blesses us with his life. We are his artistry, his creative work, made to experience life in all its fullness (John 10:10) and created to do his work in our world (Ephesians 2:10).

My Prayer…

Thank you for my life, dear God. Please don’t let anyone or anything distract my heart from honoring you. Please do not let the evil one distort my sense of being your creation. Thank you for re-creating me in Christ to live as your holy influence on those in my world. In Jesus’ name, I commit to live for you just as you gave life to me. Amen.
