Wisdom's Corner

I can remember as a little boy playing make believe that I was a superhero with great and wonderful powers. I imagined that I was like comic book characters or television cartoon characters. I played that I could lift huge rocks. Or I would play like I could freeze a lake by blowing cold air. Sometimes I would make believe that I could overcome the laws of nature, like being able to fly.

You may have seen a cartoon or fictional movie about a person that was the most powerful person alive. This person could do things that any normal human would not be able to do. You may have dreamed about being such a person.

There is someone who is all powerful. He is so powerful He created the earth and everything on it. He created all of the stars. He created the entire universe. He is all powerful. There is no one who is more powerful.

Of course, you know I am refering to God. In Genesis 1:1 it says, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." The Hebrew word for 'God' is 'elohim'. This word means 'all powerful'. The very name that God uses for Himself in the first verse of the Bible tells us that He is very, very powerful. And He used this power to create you and me.

If we will study the Bible, and obey His words, then we can live with Him in Heaven some day. We will be able to see the Most Powerful One in person. And He is using His power to prepare heaven for us. Heaven will be a very wonderful place.

Keep reading your Bible to learn what Elohim wants you to do. And if any of this is hard to understand, ask an adult to help you.
