And God Said (Thru the Bible, pt. 1)
Once again, started in Genesis 1 Today. Goal – Through the Bible in a year. Hopefully it’s yours too. Here’s a few thoughts from this morning.
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was WITHOUT FORM AND VOID AND DARKNESS WAS OVER the face of the deep. And THE SPIRIT OF GOD WAS HOVERING OVER the face of the waters” Genesis 1:1-2.
While describing God initiating the creation of the universe, the writer describes me and countless others before God initiated His work in us through Christ. I was without form and void, I was immersed in darkness, I was without the Spirit of God within. What happened to me was the same thing that happened to the heavens and the earth – “AND GOD SAID…” God spoke the world into existence, completing His work by breathing the breath of life into man. God initiated a creation in me through Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). God’s Word awakened my heart and created something good out of what was “without form and void.” 1 Peter 1:23 says that we are “born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God.” Thank God for His Word!
God is still creating. When we respond to His word we live Genesis 1. Have you had your “beginning with God”?
Father, open our ears to your voice creating Your good in the hearts of men and women.
