Title: In the beginning…
Have you ever watched the part 2 of a film before watching the part 1? There’s so much that you truly wouldn’t understand about the film (whether you realize it or not) until you get to watch the part 1. That’s how the Bible is; in vs 1 of today’s text we see that God made 2 things the Heaven and the Earth. Then vs 2 says the Earth was without form and void. Why would something God made be without form, void, and dark? It’s not the characteristic of God (as we are taught) to create something like that. It is alien to his description of himself. I am sure many of us may at some point or even right now be going through things that seem to have no direction, purpose, meaning or essence and we are wondering why God seems to be silent on the matter. As I studied God explained something to me. Look at a seed. The purpose of a seed is to be planted. It’s shape, form, and purpose is nothing compared to what it could be to become a tree, but it must go through a period of darkness, loneliness and struggle for it’s potential to be activated. While it may look like you are in a state of Darkness, don’t lose hope because in reality, you are in the state of Creation. Something Big will come out of it all, something that you will never be able to comprehend in the Darkness until the Light comes. Your story is not yet complete when it is all we see that it was and is Good!
Prayer point: Lord give me the grace to go through what you’re taking me through and not lose hope!
Memory verse: Rom 8:28
