Darkness

And the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved…….(Gen.1:2a)KJV

What happens to us when we find ourselves in dark places; in places where we are unable to see or discern what lies ahead? When we find ourselves in dark places are we shackled with fear? Do we struggle with failure, or do we stumble with our obedience? Darkness does strange things to our senses. When I was a child and the lights were off I would see and hear many things that were not there. What I saw and heard in the light looked and sounded different when it was dark. Many times we do the same thing now. When it gets dark around us we see and hear things that are not there because we are being led by our senses. In today’s scripture the earth was without form and void and there was darkness. Is there something in your life right now that is without form? Is there a void? Is it dark? Notice that no matter the lack of form or the void or even the darkness the scripture says that the Spirit of God moved! No matter the situation or the circumstance just believe that the Spirit of God is moving to right the situation. When God saw that there was no form and that there was a void and that it was dark He said let there be. We must learn to speak light in the midst of darkness. God is light and in him there is no darkness. If God is in us and for us we must do what He did when we find ourselves in dark times. What darkness do you need to speak light over? If you’re facing the darkness of divorce shout let there be light! If your dealing with the darkness of a debilitating diagnosis shout let there be light! If you are dealing with the darkness of denial shout let there be light! Notice the Spirit was moving even before God began to speak. Could it be that the Spirit is hovering over the darkness waiting for you to speak? Let there be light!

Have A Blessed Day;
