Good morning, and happy New Year!
Text: Genesis 1-2; Psalm 1
So, we begin again our journey through the whole of the Bible. Genesis is rich – a foundation of truth about reality as it actually exists. The opening two verses establish God as the one and true Creator of all things.
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. (Genesis 1:1-2)
Only God created. When the earth was first created, it had no form. It was empty. And it was dark. What follows in the text is the description of God bringing shape, order and structure, then inhabiting that structure, as He also brings the light. Our great God brings order out of chaos, fills the empty places, and illuminates the darkness.
So – is there any chaos in your life today? Emptiness? Darkness? Cry out to God knowing that it is in His nature and power to meet your need.
in Him, Mike
