“Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” Genesis 1:2
As God was getting ready to create everything, the earth is described as formless and empty, and there was darkness over it. This is stating that there really was nothing there. It was not something you could point at and say look at it.
Yet, even though there was nothing really there, the Spirit of God hovered over it. He was there. God was there looking at that area ready to do something. The next few verses quickly describe how God created everything, step by step. Until God did something, however, there was no meaning or purpose. There was no form or light. It was empty of anything.
People are the same way in this life. All over the world there are people who are living life with no form and are empty in darkness. They are going through life looking for meaning and purpose. Most people look to things or other people to find purpose and meaning in this life. Yet, they always come up empty, because all those things and people are in the same situation.
While they are searching, God’s Spirit is hovering over them. He is calling them to Himself. God is waiting to make a change in their lives. He wants to give them purpose and meaning and create new life in them.
If you are now a believer and have accepted Jesus into your life, you have started to allow God to create that new life in you. You are no longer formless and empty in darkness.
During the creation of everything, God spoke and it happened. Nothing questioned God or rebelled against what He wanted done.
As God is speaking into your life, how are you accepting His Words? Are you allowing God to change you and give you true life?
Or do you fight against God not wanting to make the necessary changes?
Allow God to give you life abundantly. Allow Him to speak into your life today. Do not remain formless and empty in the darkness.
I pray today that you will know what God is doing in your life; that you will accept God’s plan for your life; that you will allow God to make you alive in Jesus; and that you will no longer live in empty darkness.
