“In the beginning was God” (Gen 1:1; Jn 1:1-3). He always has existed, and was not created like everything else in the universe, and actually by His surpassing power created it all (Eph 3:9; Col 1:16; Heb 1:2, 11:3). He is above everything, and because He knows everything (omniscience), is all powerful (omnipotent), and present everywhere (omnipresent) is able to do more than we ask or imagine (Jn 3:31; Eph 3:20).

we should adopt the same attitude, making Him Lord by giving Him the place in our lives far above all else.
