“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and all who dwell within.” The design of God for the occupation and management of the world geographically is by the construct of what is commonly called “NATIONS”. What we tend to overlook is that God has placed that community concept within our innate DNA which comes from His “Image and Likeness”.

This month will trace that natural instinctive drive within us as it is expressed in the Book of Beginnings (Genesis). The earliest terms identified with nations link it with the genealogy of families. The personal interests and unique skills of families determine the cultural evolution of peoples “according to their families, according to their languages, in their lands and in their nations.” Of course the most common term for “nation” is “ethnos” from their ethnic origins. Only later did nations manifest socio-political and economic structures which eventually typifies them.

Our devotional studies will follow the experiences of Noah, the Babel initiative and Abraham’s family line which produced the “children of Israel”. They migrated to Egypt under the governorship of Joseph and the Pharaohs. From in those days, all other nation cultures tended to stray away from the Lord seeking their own identity with foreign Gods. But God is so particular about the emergence of nations that He made a permanent covenant with Abraham and his family to become the example nation for other nation-peoples to pattern.

This devotional exercise is for self-assessment, self-effacement, self-affirmation, self-determination and Kingdom application. As you meditate on the word, seek to apply it personally and practically to your daily life and to your vocational pursuits. You may share your reflections and testimony on the weekend.
