“Now the earth was formless and empty… And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.” Genesis 1:2,3
There was a void, there was nothing… the earth was formless and empty. And God said… He only had to speak. He said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light. He simply spoke it into existence. At first there was nothing…. Nothing.
We may feel our lives are like that… a void, a nothing. We know of God’s promises and we somehow pull ourselves along. At times we feel like giving up. We let the adverse circumstances influence our thoughts and feel lost. We feel that if things don’t fall into place, how will that which we are waiting for – happen? We unwittingly think that circumstances cause that which God promised to happen.
How wrong we are! It is not circumstances that make God’s will happen, it is His Word. Only one word was sufficient for Light to be created. He said it at the beginning of time and here we are thousands of years later seeing light in our midst. One word from God has such great power. Can you find anything in the world that can equal that?
If God has given you a promise, a Word, then hold on to His Word and believe for nothing that the Lord says ever returns without doing its job. His Word is perfect. It will come to pass.
“Dear Jesus, I am sorry for the times I didn’t trust in Your Word and Your promises. Help me to hold on to Your Word with faith, Amen.”
