Genesis 2: 5 “Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground, but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground. Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”
When you read the scripture above and the whole Genesis chapter 2, it looks as if it’s a contradiction of Genesis chapter 1. For instance Genesis 2: 5 above shows that man came on scene before trees and animals whereas in Genesis 1 we are told man was created last. In addition, in Genesis 1:11 we are told God commanded land and immediately trees came into being without waiting for rains. Genesis 1:11 “ 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. 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.” However in Chapter 2:5 we are told that there were no plants because the rains had not yet come. In short trees were waiting for rains for them to germinate.
However this is not a contradiction. The two scriptures are the same. What we need to understand is that creation and formation of things are two different events. In Genesis 1 we are told about the creation of things and this was done in the spirit. It shows us the spiritual aspect of creation of things. Then Chapter 2 shows us the formation of those things that were created. How they came in the physical. For example in Genesis 1:17, both man and woman were created same day, but Genesis 2 shows us that they came on scene differently. Man was physically formed from dust and then animals . After seeing that man was alone, a helper was formed from Man’s ribs possibly after several days or months. Creation of man and woman was same day but formation, different days.
God gave us Born Agains His nature( 1 John 4:17).This shows us that before you can form anything in the physical, you need to create it first in the Spirit through the Words. Creation is done by the Words we speak whereas formation can be done by using physical substances. Before you work on a project, create it first by speaking the Words that agree with God’s Word and then you can start allocating resources. Before you apply for a job, create it first by the Words. Before you go to your office to work or to your business, speak the Word that will create what you are going to do physically at your Work station. Before you do anything for the day, create it first with your Word. This is not about prayer. The creation can be done after or before you pray. But you need to release Words of power. You will never have any bad day again in your life. Learn to create your good day before you step into it. Anything that can happen in that day will never spoil it because you have already created your day. Before arranging for marriage, create your marriage. If you are a student create your grades before you sit for exams.Then you can study according to the grades which has been created.
Thank you father for giving me the power and ability to both create and form things in my life. With my mouth I create………………(speak them now). In Jesus name. Amen
