A Spoken Word

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 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.  3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
(Genesis 1:1-3)
 In the beginning, The world had no order to it, it was empty and void of shape, life, and purpose. God spoke light into existence and the process of life and structure began. The power of a spoken word. A word from God changes everything. A word spoken from the lips of the throne brings light to darkness, hope to a desolate situation . A word from God brings life again, and a sense of purpose where the light of such is dimming.  Oh, how we need to Hear from Him.
 A life without order has no peace, no sense of stability. Oh, but one word. You may be feeling that way right now. Things in your life may spinning out of control and you feel disillusioned and fragmented. But one word. Every human has a need for a sense of security in their life. Affirmation that God has a plan and a purpose, a word for us today, now, and for our situation. “I have come to bring order to chaos. I am the spoken Word, the living Word, Jesus. I have come to bring order to the chaos of the human condition called lost in sin. I make things right again and put them in their rightful place. I bring order where there is none.”
  It’s interesting to me that the first book of the Bible begins with the spoken word and the beginning of the New Testament does the same: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. (John 1:1-4)
 God is still speaking today, He’s the still small voice; if you’re not careful you’ll miss Him. He’s the Word of God alive and powerful and when you do hear him you’ll know it is Him, and he’ll bring peace to your heart and order to your soul.
