Genesis 1:2

30 Sep

How many times have we read the creation story in Genesis? I know I’ve read it a bunch of times. In Sunday School as a child I was taught to memorize the order of creation. But today some new thoughts on one particular verse Genesis 1:2 was brought to my attention by an awesome son of God, Christopher Easter.

The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Genesis 1:2

Christopher made the connection between this verse and our lives before we’ve accepted the gift of salvation. My soul was stirred by this. A huge YES!!!!, leaped from my Spirit. This verse is so us! Before we’ve accepted Jesus in our hearts we’re in darkness, formless, there’s nothing in us, we merely exist. We wander around aimlessly, with no destination and no purpose. We live our lives in sin and seek after wickedness. We’re mere shells. Our lives may seem to be of meaning, it may seem that we have it together, but let me tell you that anything apart from God is nothing! No amount of riches, no relationship, no thing has any meaning when it’s apart from God.

What really grabbed my heart strings and made me praise God, is the fact that even in our sin, in our evil and wicked ways, God is hovering above us waiting for us to except Him into our hearts, so that he can mold us, fill us, put the light Jesus into us. He’s there waiting on us, wanting to pull us out or hell bound ways. Never leaving, never taking His eyes off of us. Loving us through it all. I love Him for that!

I feel compelled to pray:

Father, I need you. My life is nothingness without You. I thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to die so that might live in eternity with You. Father, I dedicate my life to You. I give You all of me. I could live for a hundred years and give everything I own to the poor. I could go throughout the world feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, sheltering the homeless, yet that’s nothing compared to what You’ve given me. Father, don’t just forgive me of my sins, but remove the desire to sin from me. Take anything that is not of You from my heart. Put a passion and an unquenchable desire for You in my heart. I want to live my life to please You. I want to live my life to serve You, Father. You are so worthy. My mind can’t even phantom the greatness that is You. I thank You for Your mercy and grace. I thank You for loving me when I was unlovable. I thank You hovering above me even in my wickedness. I thank You for accepting me into Your kingdom. I thank You for allowing me to be one of Your chosen. I thank You for allowing me to be you daughter. I give You all the glory, honor and praise. In Jesus Name, I pray. Amen.

    I like this thought because it also reminds me that even when we were dead in our trespasses & sin Christ died for us.
