40 DAYS – Time with God – Day 16
Born to Flourish
by Kuzipa Nalwamba
In the book of Genesis, we find a portrayal of God’s act of creation. The two creation narratives of Genesis 1 and 2 depict the goodness in creation and the harmonious existence between human beings and the rest of creation. The Spirit of God that hovered over the waters (1:2) breathed life into all that God created.
God made light and darkness and separated water from the sky and land from water. God then created vegetation, the sun and moon to govern day and night, living creatures on the land and in the sea and humans. God summed up each phase of creation as ‘good’.
