Scripture: Genesis 1:1-4
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 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.
3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.
We all come into the world with blank slate lives. Like creation, our future is formless and empty. Who we will be and what we will do is shrouded in darkness.
Of course, God sees our future, but we can’t. In fact, God sees every possibility. He knows exactly what each person is capable of. And from the very beginning of our lives, He’s there wanting to guide us to our greatest potential.
The Scripture says that God’s Spirit was hovering over the darkness of creation. Can you picture God’s Spirit hovering over you? He’s right there with us, even if we don’t know it. And when we turn to Him, He will show us who we can be. He will remove the darkness of uncertainty by declaring “Let there be light” in our lives.
Do you feel the Spirit’s presence with you now? What light is He shining in Your heart today?
