Day 1: Elohim

In the beginning, [Elohim] created the heavens and the earth.

Genesis 1:1

Elohim: God, the Creator

A writer friend of mine recently said, “I create because God creates.” I love that so much more than I can say. That we can imitate Him in creativity! That we can worship Him by creating!

I love it all the more because God created with words, and I love words. “God spoke” is scattered all over Genesis 1, and whatever God describes is. Fantasy writers use a term that has caught my fancy lately – they call their work “world building.” They, like God, build whole worlds out of words. Oh, to be blessed to imitate God in this way!

God is Creator, the World Builder. He is Elohim. ❤
