Genesis 1:1 – “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
This is our only starting-point. We begin with the eternal God. Before there was creation, there is God. There is nothing beyond God. He is the Beginning.
Genesis 1:2 – “darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of face of the waters.”
Before the Spirit of God has done his powerful work in our hearts, we remain in darkness. We can do nothing about this. The light does not come from ourselves. It comes from the Lord.
Genesis 1:3 – “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”
This is the mighty work of God. Through His amazing grace, He brings us out of His darkness and into His light.
Genesis 1:4 – “the light was good”
What a wonderful blessing it is when the light of the Lord shines in our hearts.
