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 (NIV)
Do you ever wonder where God is in the midst of your uncertainty? Your family may be falling apart. Your job may look like it is coming to an end…your position is being phased out because it’s no longer in the budget. Your child may be going full speed ahead in the wrong direction and nothing you say or do seems to bring about a course correction. Possibly you are experiencing all of these things at once.
I am so grateful to report that although everything in our lives may appear to be uncertain and down right chaotic at times, God holds certainty in the palm of His hands. As we look to the very first couple of sentences that God shared with humanity, we can see that He brought about a course correction in an instant. He stepped into the midst of formlessness and brought about order.
You see, from eternity past things were without order but God stepped in and said enough is enough. The formlessness immediately took shape up and came to order. I really believe that God choose to give us that visual picture because He wants us to see that nothing or no one, no matter how long it has been or how chaotic the situation may seem, is too far gone for God to step in and create certainty in an uncertain situation.
Lord, I thank You that Your Word gives me a ray of hope to trust that You will step in and bring about certainty to my uncertain situation.
