The book of Genesis is among my favorites. I never tire of reading the first verses about God’s work on earth. It excites me to read that the act of creating is the first thing we are told about God.
“In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.” Genesis 1:1-3
Isn’t it absolutely amazing to read that darkness was everywhere? Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. He created something out of nothing.
Do you ever feel like a nothing? Does darkness seem to linger through your days?
Remember, God has been creating from the beginning of time as we know it; He is still creating in the hearts of mankind, bringing His light, dispelling the dark. Remember too, God has done some of His most beautiful work in the dark.
“You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, Oh God! They are innumerable! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake in the morning, you are still with me.!” Psalm 139:15-18
