2 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.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
The first chapter of the first book of the Bible says that in the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. Good took the time to create the space where we would live and the environment that He wanted us to have before He even made us. That is how much He loves us. The overwhelming and unending Love of God is calling us today to remember that above and beyond all, God must be our priority. As he firstly took care of us before even creating us, God must be first in all of our undertakings. So shall it be in Jesus’ name.
God made the declaration that called Light into existence, so that darkness would automatically give way to the brightness of the Presence of God. Light did not negotiate with darkness. He said that there should be light: and there was light (v3). God knew that we needed light in our lives. He knew that we would need light to regulate all that He created including the agriculture and forestry for us to eat and keep the earth’s climate in balance. Light is required for everything including our movement. May the Light of God locate you in Jesus’ name.
Today, God is confirming to you that He has declared light in your life. Every form of darkness will give way to the light of God in Jesus’ name. However, you have the obligation to run very far away from sin. Sin is darkness. We all sin and fall short of God’s glory, but we need to continually run away from sin and pursue light. When there is light, chains are broken. Sins are cleansed and Believers are made whole by the Blood of Jesus Christ. Are you a child of light, or are you walking in the darkness of sin? God made light to erode the darkness in your life.
Homework: Pray and say Father, let your light illuminate my heart and mind and shut out every form of darkness in my life.
