Verse Of The Day: 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. Genesis 1:2
Thought of The Day : God brings out light in darkness and hope in hopelessness.
LISTEN : God is powerful and His power is unmatchable. He is full of glory and mysteries. Secret things belong to Him. As a matter of fact, God is mysterious in all His ways. No man can predict His moves. When He moves, Satan trembles and tumbles in fear and confusion. When He moves, Problems receive solutions. God is light to them that walk in darkness. Darkness (evil) cannot survive where light reigns. When God moves, Satan is dislodged. (James 2:19). When God moves everything falls into place; because His power overrides and overturns the verdicts of the devil and his wicked agents. When God decides to show up, emptiness will give way to abundance and fulfillment. Yes, when He moves, He brings order to a disorderly condition. Our verse of the day says, “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.” (Genesis 1:2). The earth we live today was previously formless and void. It was completely desolate; and was an expression of confusion and disorder. However, God’s presence transformed everything; for His presence makes crooked paths straight. His words expresses His presence. When His word comes everything changes. The Bible says, “God said, Let there be light, and there was light.” (Genesis 1:3). Beloved, is your life shattered? Is your life full of confusion and disorder? Allow the Spirit of God to move in and fix your life; for you can accomplish nothing of eternal importance without Him. So, invite Him to bring order into your life today; with God, all situations can be changed. Remember, God moves in mysterious ways and He could help you in mysterious ways too. Be wise!
