Genesis 1:2-3 – The Earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light” and there was light.
As the earth was “formless and void,” so too are we before God speaks. Darkness was over the surface of the deep. Is your life without form and void? Do you feel void of purpose, trying to understand why you exist? Many wrestle with who they are and why they exist. Many feel a sense of purposelessness.
As it was in the natural creation, the Spirit of God is moving over the surface of people’s lives. He has come to speak the Word of God into the life of individuals and nations. The same Word of God that brought order out of chaos and light to the natural creation in the beginning wants to bring order to our lives and reveal God’s purpose in us. He has come to bring forth a new creation out of the old. This is what Paul meant when he said, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold new things have come” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
Today, many are full of confusion, emptiness, and without purpose. The darkness of sin rules in their life choices. Each area can be brought into the light of God’s Word through the life-giving presence of the Holy Spirit. God gave His Word in human form when He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Spirit of God is waiting for individuals to receive the spoken Word. God’s word can be made flesh in our lives as well. Jesus said, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in darkness, but will have the Light of life” (John 8:12). The Holy Spirit is present, helping men and women come to the Light of God revealed in His Word and manifested through the Lord Jesus Christ. Some need to receive the initial salvation of forgiveness and the new birth. Others have come to Christ, yet they still have areas in their lives that are bound by darkness. The Holy Spirit came to set the captives free and bring fruitfulness in lives that are surrendered to God’s plan. Let us be fruitful by fulfilling God’s plan in our life.
Ask the Holy Spirit to remove chaos from your life and replace it with His order. Give Him permission to search all parts of your life and reveal any darkness by exposing it to His light.
