"In the beginning God (Elohim) 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
In the beginning God (Elohim) created, (or formed), the heavens and earth. The earth was (the word for was is, hayal, which means, became) without form, and void; The word used for, without form, is Tohu, which means confusion.
So in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth came to be in confusion, and it was dark. But then the Word of God says...
"And God said,..."
The scriptures begin to tell us what God said...and as He spoke, things came to be.
"And God said, 'Let there be light:' and there was light." Gen. 1:3
Is this the beginning of a new season in your life? Is God making some changes in your surroundings, in your relationships, in your job, in your family, in your lifestyle, in your ministry? Well, many times, 'in the beginning,' It looks like chaos or confusion; it may look void and without form; it may look dark, because you cannot see where God is taking you...But if you remember that, 'in the beginning, God...'; Then you will know who is directing your future...You must remember who has spoken over your life...You must remember that the One who was 'in the beginning', promises "...that He who has begun a good work in you will continue it until the day of Jesus Christ;" Philppians 1:6
'In the beginning,' it can seem exciting, but also it can seem that it is without form, void and dark, because walking by faith and not by sight, means that many times we have no idea how God is going to work everything out...But we must remember that, 'God said...and it was.'
So as He is changing your positioning and shifting your life, remember that His Word does not change, if He said it, then it is so.
When He has spoken, and said that He will 'cause all things to work together for the good of those who love Him and are the called according to His purpose.'
It is so.
If He has said that He will 'bless the work of your hands.' It is so.If He has said that, 'He will make you the head and not the tail; above only and not beneath..' It is so. If He has said, 'I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it...' It is so. If He has said, 'No weapon formed against you shall be able to prosper.' It is so. If He has said, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." It is so. If God said "Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Then it is so.
So, do not fear the beginning of something new....do not fear the changes coming your way...Because you are 'in the beginning', and Jesus (Yeshua) said, "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the 'Beginning' and the End, says the Lord (ADONAI) Who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty." Rev.1:8 NKJV
And lastly, remember that those things which God spoke; they came to be...And they were "good" and "very good"
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
