Then God said…

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters.
And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. 

Then God said, ‘Let there be light.’” Genesis 1:3

The voice of God thundered into the formless, empty, darkness and brought forth light and life!

God’s words spoke all creation into existence and He proclaimed it, “Good!”

“By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.” Hebrews 11:3

God’s words contain creative power!

God spoke and His very breath formed substance from nothing; He spoke and all things were born!

“The Lord merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born. He assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs. Let the whole world fear the Lord, and let everyone stand in awe of him.

For when he spoke, the world began! It appeared at his command.” Psalm 33:6-9

The world was formed; the sun, moon, and stars were hung in the sky, the earth was filled with fishes swimming in the oceans, animals roaming upon the ground, and birds souring in the sky.

But God wasn’t finished.

The earth wasn’t yet complete.

There was one more creation, unique and completely different then all He had created so far.

“Let Us make human beings in our image, to be like Us.” Genesis 1:26

I can only imagine when God spoke those words He drew the attention of all creation and a holy hush fell over all the heavens and over all the earth as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, created human beings in their image, to be like them!

All creation looked on in wonder as God reached His hands down into the dust of the earth and formed the shape of a man. Then He bent His head down low, and breathed His very breath into the nostrils of man, and God’s creation became a living being.

Adam, you, and me, were all formed by God, made in the image of God, created to be loved by God, and intended to be one with God!

“So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27

“Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good!” Genesis 1:31

 

Perhaps you find there are some formless, empty, dark places you are facing in life…

Situations that seem to have no purpose and you don’t understand how to get past them.

Relationship issues or financial difficulties that leave you feeling empty and unfulfilled or worried and unable to get ahead.

Dark corners in your heart that you know need to be cleaned out, but seem too overwhelming to deal with.

I’m here to remind you that these are God’s specialties!

God’s words contain creative power!

God’s words create purpose when your life seems formless.

God’s words create fullness when your life seems empty.

God’s words bring light when you find yourself in the dark.

May you choose to listen to God’s words and find the truth that will bring you light and life!
