The modern view of God broadly begins with creation. “In the beginning . . . ”
The Hebrew, however, does not have the word “the” in the sentence. It might well have been A beginning for this thing we call human history, but history and God’s history certainly did not begin at creation, although we act like it.
Megan’s book is about some of the extraordinary history before our paltry history began. As such, it will be an immense revelation for most people.
In fact, there was so much revelation that she already turned the original book into two! This book will stretch your perspective immensely, but it is just the preamble to the good stuff.
In the face of such a surfeit of riches, there is a tendency to become content or even overwhelmed at the abundance from the hand of God. Against that backdrop of people receiving “enough” of God to satisfy them, we have the towering immensity of Moses.
He received more personal attention from God than any man after Adam. But he was big enough in spirit and soul that he dared to ask God for a hugely larger deposit than God had offered him.
God did not rebuke him for his desire, just tailored it slightly for functionality.
Let’s pray for the same here. Megan has more revelation than she can put in this book. There is already another book written with a whole lot more good revelation, waiting to be edited.
Why stop now?
Even though this book is officially already written and the task at hand is just preparing the presentation, let’s ask God to seal this chapter of her life with a fresh deposit of new revelation, so that each day she sits down to work, she will be shivering with awe and delight.
God is up for it.
Let’s pray His revelation from heaven down to Megan’s office, person and book.
