LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF GENESIS 1:2-3 ( Amp version)
" The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light; and there was light."
10 KEYS -DON'T BE SILENT .SPEAK!
1, Everything God gave to us ,is voice activated .The book of Mark 11:23(Amp) confirms this " Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him." . If you fail to speak , the situation remains the same .
2.Before God talked with Adam , he dealt with the problem at hand. . Learn to talk to God first , before man. why? God is always right. Ask David .2 Sam 5:19(NIV)"so David inquired of the LORD, "Shall I go and attack the Philistines? Will you deliver them into my hands?" The LORD answered him, "Go, for I will surely deliver the Philistines into your hands." You can never fail in life when you get God's approval to "go"
3.God never allowed what he saw in the earth (hopeless case) to intimidate him , rather he spoke to it as God and the answer came forth."light". Why not speak . Amazingly, Jesus told us in scripture in the book of John 10:34 " Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?" your situation is subject to your command. your situation is not your boss , you are . so speak to it and take the necessary steps . Luke 10:19
4.What you see in the midst of your crises matters . God saw light (the solution). what do you see ? , scripture says in the book of proverb 23:18 (Amp version) " For surely there is a latter end [a future and a reward], and your hope and expectation shall not be cut off." Listen one of Satan's tricks is to make you believe , your situation/challenge has no end . whose report would you belief? God or Satan ? .
5.What was the solution ? the solution was the word God spoke .John 1:1"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." . Find out what God has said in His word concerning that situation , pray it , believe it and take the necessary steps you need to take and believe by faith for God to show up with the answers.
6. If God did not give up hope when the earth was without form ,empty and void . Why should you ? Is your case as bad as when the earth was without form and lying in waste? one of the greatest gift is hope (1 cor 13:13) In Christ we all have a living hope , because Jesus is not dead ,but living . Heb 6:19(NIV)"We have this hope "Jesus" as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain,." where God himself is. "think"
7. No matter how empty you think your life or circumstances have become , God can still create something beautiful out of it. Gen 1:16(NLT)"God made two great lights--the larger one to govern the day, and the smaller one to govern the night. He also made the stars." out of an empty waste , God brought out something beautiful. yours is not difficult for God . Amen.
8. No matter the toughness of your situation , listen , God is waiting for you to speak to it . God is waiting for you to address the situation , with the word He has given you . say what you want your situation to be . Isaiah 51:16(NIV)" I have put my words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of my hand-- I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth, and who say to Zion, 'You are my people.'" His word is in your mouth . Say it (Heb 4:12)
9. God did not go about telling all the angels in heaven about what had happened , He believed that the very word he spoke was able to change the situation . Friend , believe in the words you speak . Prov 18:21(NIV)"The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit."
10. In your moment of darkness , there is a word . Hold on to that word and run with it . Isaiah 30:21"And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left."
" Say it and your heart will believe it "
prayer : I refuse to keep silent in the midst of my storm in the name of Jesus , Amen.
NB: Go ahead and declare great things in your life . Num 14:28
you win ! Amen.
