GOD – Soft and Gentle and Delicate…like a Mammy!

Almighty God said “Let there be…” And there it was, created, powerful, immediate! This is the work of the most supreme power beyond all imagination. Powerful, yes, but not intimate; this is awesome “macro creation”, Genesis! Grand major creation! Now, notice the shift; 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.” From a powerful awesome “Universe scale” creation down to the intimate, gentle, loving, motherly creation, this Great God is creating “like a mammy bending over her baby”. I love that image…can’t you picture it? Our Creator God is loving, tender and caring. Intimacy! Think, what is a breath? It is soft and gentle and delicate. The image of God giving life to man by breathing the breath of life into his nostrils is one of the most loving images in the whole Bible. I view this delicate life-creation as so gentle and loving a breath that it wouldn’t blow the seed puffs off a dandelion ball.

You have just got to love a God like that!
