Genesis 1 Devotional - God's Spirit Hovering Over the Dark Waters

Scripture: Genesis 1:2-3
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.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

We've all gone through dark times in life. I know I have, sometimes on a daily basis. That's just how life is. It's up, and it's down. Sometimes, things are going your way, and sometimes, they're not.

That's why I love Genesis 1:2-3. The entire world was in chaos. It had no orderly shape to it. It was just a mess of watery substance covered in complete darkness. It was nothing in those first moments of creation.

But what?

But God's Spirit was hovering over that mess. God's Spirit was hovering, waiting in the midst of that darkness, getting ready to act. And in the next instant, God's Spirit declared, "Let there be light!" and the darkness was gone.

It would come back, just like our dark times return from time to time. But in that moment, it was gone.

We all go through dark times. And, yes, sometimes, our life seems to be a mess. But God's Spirit is hovering over you, getting ready to act, getting ready to bring His light to your darkness.

Can you feel it?
