Now the earth was without shape and empty, and darkness was over the surface of the watery deep, but the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the water. God said, “Let there be light.” And there was light!
Genesis 1:2-3 NET
The first thing we like to do when we find ourselves in darkness is to find a light.
Whether that is switching on the light or even grabbing our cellphones to illuminate the room, we know that having light is important. How many stubbed toes are grateful for that?
Bringing light was the first thing God did when He created the world.
He brought light into the darkness!
But you also need to know that before God said, “Let there be light,” that the Spirit of God was moving over the water.
Even before light showed up, God was there!
And that is very true for every situation we find ourselves in.
You might not see the end. It might look desperate. You might feel surrounded by darkness, but the Spirit of God is already there. The Spirit of God is already working and moving.
Don’t lose hope because you don’t see it. Don’t give up on God because you don’t fully understand every detail. He is there. And He knows exactly what you need.
The light will come. It always does. But it comes when He is ready. Until then, you have His Spirit to guide you and lead your way.
Trust in Him. Trust in Him even when you don’t see it.
Father, thank You for everyday and every night, the times when we see and the times when we have to trust in You. Help increase my faith and trust in You. I know there is no other way to truly live.
