The Creation of Hope in the Void

Without God, our life is formless and empty. We hover over the surface of the deep, the pit of despair. Deep in our darkness we cannot see, but the Spirit of God is there, hovering over the surface. God is our hope. He brings order to our formless and empty life. In our darkness we feel the Spirit’s presence. We only need to reach out to God, to cry out to him to bring order to our life.

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

  1. Hebrews 13:5 comes to mind as I read this—“Never will I leave you nor forsake you.” This assurance I have in Him no matter where I find myself, is what keeps me going, keeps me ever-watchful for Him. I cannot tell you how thankful I am that His love “stooped down” for me and hasn’t left and never will.

    Beautiful thoughts again this morning, my friend 🙂
