In the beginning God
By Ivan Ho 22 June 2018
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
Genesis 1:1-2 NKJV
God re-created the earth that was messed up by the devil in Genesis 1.
No matter how messed up our life and situation is, God is more than capable to turn everything around to redesign, recreate, restore, rebuild and put things back in order according to His original plan and purpose. When we let God in, it is not a decision to join a religion. When one decides to let God come into his life, God begins a process to redesign and reconstruct his life until Christ is formed in him/her.
In the beginning God… everything begins and ends with God. The devil has no part in us when God takes over.
Today you and I can make a powerful decision to bring God in! No matter how messed up our life may seem to be, no matter how bad the situation may look, no matter how impossible the circumstances may appear, no matter what the devil has done, no matter what you and I have said and done, when God comes in it’s a new beginning, and He has the final say!
It’s only a matter of time when you and I will see all things turn around for good according to God’s purpose!
Before God arrived at the scene, the earth was without form, and void, and full of darkness. In other words, the whole earth was a total mess, chaotic and filled with darkness. That is the situation we find ourselves in before God comes in.
Then God takes charge and that’s when our life really begins.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
Genesis 1:1-3 NKJV
In the beginning, the will and purpose of God the Father was to re-create the heavens and the earth. The Holy Spirit arrived upon the scene and was hovering over the face of the waters, then came the Word “Let there be Light”, and there was Light.
Not until the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit gets involved and takes control, our life is in a state of chaos and emptiness, and full of darkness. It remains that way until God comes in. Our life has no purpose, no direction, no guidance and full of darkness due to sin. But in the beginning God… and everything changes for good.
It took God 5 days to create the heavens and the earth. On the 6th day, God created man and woman in His image and likeness to be in charge on planet earth. On the 7th day, God rested from all His works.
In 6 days time, God redesigned and recreated everything, and completely reversed the mess the devil has done.
It does not matter how hopeless and messy the situation we find ourselves in, when God comes in and brings us the word from heaven, a new day is dawn and our life enters into a new beginning. It may take 6 days for God to turn our situation around, or it may take 6 months, or 6 years. Time is not a factor because when God speaks into our life, it is already considered done as far as God is concerned! When God speaks, the devil has no more say in the matter. When God speaks, it is finished!
When we receive the Word, who is Christ, into our heart, we receive the power to change. Not only do we receive forgiveness for our sins when we receive Christ, we receive the power to change everything within us according to God’s design and purpose. We must receive and believe the Word, follow the will of the Father, and let the Holy Spirit continually teach and guide us all our life, until Christ is formed in us.
What God has begun, He will also complete. God never starts anything and not completes what he has started. In the beginning God…. the story that He begins in us will come to a glorious ending !
