Hello God’s elect,
The gift of a brand new working week is upon us; glory to God!
We’re taking it back to the beginning in today’s meditation. Genesis 1:1-3 (New International Version) says, “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. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
According to Bible historians, the original greek version in which the Bible was written has verse 3 captured as (paraphrased) …And God said, light be and light was.
God didn’t get despaired by the situation. He didn’t go crying -why is there so much emptiness and darkness all around me? Instead He spoke what He wanted into existence and they all came into being. Remember that you are created in the image and likeness of God; He’s also given you dominion. Jesus speaking in John 14: 12 instructed us to do greater works that He did on earth.
Taking a cue from these, it is important to bear in mind that we can command what we desire into existence. The President of Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo usually says, “what you don’t want, you don’t watch.” If you’ve so far experienced darkness in certain areas of your life, why not begin to speak light over those situations. I recently heard a Minister say that God’s word in your mouth is as powerful as His word in His mouth; what a revelation!
So as the new week begins don’t hold back from speaking- Light be over my life; Light be over the works of my hands; Light be over my marriage; Light be over that affliction; Light be over that terminal condition; Light be over my children; Light be over my ministry…Amen!
God’s blessings always,
