In the Beginning

IN THE BEGINNING JOURNAL

Nothing is a surprise to God. From the beginning He planned to create life on earth. From the beginning He created humans in His image. From the beginning He desired to have a relationship with each of us. And from the beginning, He had a plan for our redemption. The first eleven chapters of Genesis show us who God is, why He created the earth, and how He planned our redemption from the very first sin.

In the Beginning is a six-week Bible study covering the first eleven chapters of Genesis. This Bible study journal includes the entire text of Genesis 1–11. Daily readings explore not only the text of Genesis, but supporting verses and cross-references to provide a robust understanding of God’s character and actions in these early chapters. Perfect for personal or small group study, the In the Beginning Bible study journal includes daily Scripture passages, SOAP pages, daily devotions, challenges, reflection questions, and encouragement from women around the world.

100% of your journal purchase goes back into the ministry, helping us translate each study into multiple languages as we reach more women around the world with God’s Word.

History of Faithfulness

History of Faithfulness

A few years ago I had the opportunity to visit the village of Marshfield, England, where my great-grandfather grew up. Sam, my great-grandfather, lived in England until his father died in 1911. In 1912, Sam, only fifteen-years-old at the time, bought a ticket to...

Our reading in Genesis today is kind of nostalgic for me. I love that the people of the earth all spoke the same language and were in one accord. I really love that setting. But because of the nature of sin that had already begun to eat deeply and consistently into...

Sadly, it didn’t take long for Noah’s descendants to not follow in his footsteps and go their own way. Unlike Noah, Nimrod and the people in the cities he founded choose not to follow God. Nimrod was known as a great hunter, ruler, and builder. He was described as...

The story of Noah and the flood is so commonplace to many of us that we lose the wonder and awe of this event. The entire earth was flooded and Noah and his family were in some contraption that no one had ever seen or heard of before. What if they run out of food?...

Waiting is my kryptonite! I am very vulnerable to impulsivity, recklessness, and discouragement when I do not have an obvious expiration date for my periods of waiting.   Yes. I have prayed daily about it, but we all know what happens when you pray for patience!  The...

Finding Favor

Finding Favor

“I don’t want to listen and obey!” I sat on a stool in front of a pint-sized sinner. His fists were clenched, and his face was grimaced in a very stubborn frown. He pushed the milk away like it was poison. I took a deep breath, and I looked down at him with eyes of...

When we read Genesis 4:23 we see how, sadly, history repeated itself in a descendant of Cain. It broke my heart to read this. Humanity hadn’t existed for long and evil had already begun replicating itself in a family. But as I read verse 26, hope surged in my heart...

I will admit that, at times, I get confused as to how something written so long ago could apply to my life today. However, I am excited to remind you (and myself) that we serve a God who is timeless and whose Word will never return to us void (Isaiah 55:11). When I...

This week my six-year-old asked me: “How big do you think the computer was that helped God make people?” It was an innocent question and a sweet teaching moment, but it made the contrast of these verses and the norm of our daily life so obvious. “The Lᴏʀᴅ God formed...

And Then God Created

It wasn’t enough to give the earth light, to stretch out land and fill our sky with the sun, moon and stars… God wasn’t done yet.  In today’s reading in Genesis, so far God has:  Created light and changed the darkness on Day 1. Separated sky from water on Day 2....

We come to the third day of God's amazing work of creation. The world was not yet ready for humanity to live in it. There was air and there was light but there was no land and so God commanded the water to separate from the land, and it obeyed His voice.  He...
