In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
The written word of God holds the past, the present and the future of our lives. We can see where the beginning started and we can read about when the end comes. Yet, it's all those in-between days that matter. It seems to me that the days are getting so much shorter and night is over before you know it. In the beginning, God created days and night.
GOD DO THIS FOR US ~ Genesis 1
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
THINKING ABOUT THIS ~
Living in the Napa Valley, we have experienced PGE turning off our electricity to our homes. Not having power is a hard thing to deal with. You automatic try to turn on a light and nothing is there. The switch has no power behind it. We can take electricity for granted. Do you ever take God's power for granted? Just because he is always there, do you only go to him in needed times? It is something to think about in life. God said a lot of things to us and his light is important to carry inside of us, so it will shine outside of us too.
Light was created to take the darkness away. What a great thought not to live in the dark and how light over power the darkness. The enemy of our soul wants us to stay in the darkness of life. He doesn't want us to see things God's way or live in the freedom of God's word (Bible). It is simply to open the Bible or even google scriptures of hope, encouragement, love, peace and all good topics. It shows us how to hold on through all seasons of life. Let the light of the Lord guide you in dark times and see how the light of the Lord will shine.
Genesis 1:1-5 New International Version (NIV)The Beginning1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formlessand 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. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
God did a lot for us in the first day he created. Down the road of life, we learn from our own choices and we can lean into God's plan even more. We grow and we develop our character. Each new day is another chance to walk in God's word and truth. Be encouraged today, it's a new day filled with opportunities to shine. There is power in the name of Jesus and God's plan continues to unfold. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
