Adam and Eve 1

Conversations with God: Adam and Eve 1

“So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.” Then God said, “Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food. And I have given every green plant as food for all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, and the small animals that scurry along the ground—everything that has life.” And that is what happened. Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good! And evening passed and morning came, marking the sixth day.” Genesis 1:27-31 NLT

The very first thing God said to people was blessings. So God’s heart and desire, first and foremost is to bless us. He loves to bless us. Blessing is a core part of God’s character that we can rely on to be there for us. So how can we interact with this truth?

Ask God the following questions. Pick the one that jumps out at you or any that just appeal, or all.

Write down the answer (the words or pictures that appear in our mind almost before the question has finished. Write them down without criticism or analysis. Leave that till you are finished. If what you heard is kinder or better than anything you would say, is like the Jesus in the Bible, you can be sure it was God).
