Genesis 1 Devotional - God Said, and There Was

Scripture: Genesis 1:3
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

If you could wish for anything - if you could just say it and have it happen - what would you wish for? Would you wish for some circumstance in your life to change? Would you wish for world peace or an end to hunger?

I'm betting that most of the things you would wish for are good things. I'm also betting that most of the things you would wish for are things that God would also wish for. He wants your life to be good. He wants the world to be in harmony. If it's good, God would wish for it, right? He's a good God.

Except with God, it's not wishing. It's waiting. Because God can change things in an instant, at any time He wants to. He can simply speak and create light. He can say the word and make it be. He can dispel the darkness and turn the universe on its head with a sentence. But the universe had to wait for that to happen. God didn't create light on the earth the first second He could. God is eternal. The earth is not. The earth had to wait for God to form it and shine light on it.

It's the same with us. God can change our whole situation, the whole course of our life, the whole world order... instantly.

And someday, He will. Christ will return and flip the world right side up. Everything will be as it was intended. But that time hasn't come yet.

Maybe the time for God to speak and change your situation is right around the corner. Or maybe the time isn't right yet, and you'll have to wait a little longer. Just keep listening for that one sentence, that one word of change from Him, and be ready. The change is coming. He promises you that.
