Daily Insight April 27
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” (Genesis 1:1-2).
God births beauty from chaos.
Bible, the only authoritative Word of God, says the living God created everything we see around us – earth, heavens, people, animals, birds, fish, various type of trees and fruits. Our today’s insight also says the earth was formless and empty and darkness was over the surface of the deep. The Spirit of God was hovering over the deep waters. This means the land was not yet inhabitable for humankind. The remaining verses of the 1st chapter of the book of Genesis say how God prepared the land for the inhabitation of the first man and his wife-Adam and Eve. Verse 2 describes the role of God or the Spirit of God that in the creation history. God formed the land to a beautiful place to live in by his powerful word, and it is illustrated in the following verses of the first chapter.
The same God who prepared the earth from formlessness, emptiness, and darkness to beauty, form, and order is the God who wants to have friendship and fellowship with you. Beloved, He can do the same thing in our lives as well. Beloved, are you confused, broken-hearted? Are you facing darkness, chaos, and problems in your life today? As much as my heart goes after you, I also want to remind you that you are not alone. Many people face different types of agonies and difficulties. However, do you know the creator God is the perfect solution for all our problems? Bible says in Psalms 34:15, “GOD keeps an eye on his friends, his ears pick up every moan and groan.” (Message).
The loving God ask you to come to Him in prayer with your problems. The LORD God can speak a word, and all will go away like a flash. Remember He called all into existence by His word. He can also start a fresh breeze of restoration and healing process in your life. He knows how to refresh and restore your troubled soul with His power as He did to King David. David testifies in Psalm 23:3, “He restores my soul.” Such is the power of our God and His Holy Spirit.
The restoration and healing of God are available in and through Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Bible says, in Isaiah 53:5. He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds, we are healed.
It is simple -God heals you and restores you when you come to Jesus Christ who died in your place for all of your sins. Yes, God is the expert to birth beauty from chaos. He did at the beginning of creation. He still does it personal lives.
Got a moment for today’s prayer?
“Father in heaven, I understand you created this universe, in this beautiful and organized manner, by your all-powerful Word. I believe and trust in you and your power. I know Bible also says Jesus Christ came into this world to rescue me and grant me forgiveness and eternal life. I know in Him there is healing/restoration for my soul. Lord, I bring my problems to you today. (describe your problem you are facing in your own words). I pray Lord to help and deliver me from my problem with the same almighty power you exercised to create this universe from nothing. Thank you, Lord, for helping and delivering me. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. “
