When God Speaks

Genesis 1: 1 – 4, In the beginning God 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. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.

Isn’t it amazing how everything we see on this earth or in the sky began with a Word? God used something that is invisible to the human eye to create everything that is visible. Everything that has been made by man has come from the earth. When you look down at the ground can you envision a house or a bridge? When God began to speak in Genesis 1, He already had a vision of a world filled with people who would love Him and praise Him for all His goodness.

In order to do the will of God in the earth today, Christians must understand how God operates. He doesn’t want us to look at a certain situation and only see the situation; speaking the problem to the problem won’t eliminate the problem. Jesus tells us in Matthew 17, to speak with faith unto the mountain and the mountain will be removed and cast into the sea. In the beginning, God didn’t look at the darkness and say, “It sure is dark!” He didn’t desire to see darkness, so He spoke what He wanted to see, which was light. As Christians, who also happen to be humans, we must do what God did, the way He did it, so that we might get the same results. We must address this life, along with its difficulties, by faith in what we want to see, instead of looking at life with only the view that is offered by our eyes. 

Every time that God spoke something from heaven, it appeared exactly that way on earth. Therefore, when God saw on earth what He had declared from heaven, He would call it good. It was good, because He had created it, but also because His will was being fulfilled on earth just as it already was in heaven. Here’s where faith comes into the story of your new life in Christ. If we indeed walk by faith, then we will reflect back to God what He has already planned for our lives. If we don’t walk by faith, but only by sight, then we won’t reflect His will for us and He will know why. For us to have faith simply means that we walk in agreement with His will and not with our will.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
