“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.” Genesis 1:1-2
I wanted to share this verse with you today because it may seem like a simple verse, we all know that God did create the earth but just take a moment to really and truly think about what this verse means. Our God, the one and only God created something out of nothing! We could never do that, no matter how hard we try, we could never just have absolutely nothing and create something from it, but, God did. So, when you get discouraged and think that your problems are too big for God, just remember He created this beautiful world we live in out of absolutely nothing! No problem is too big for Him.
“The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” Psalm 23
“It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; you stoop down to make me great. You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn.” Psalm 18:32-36
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20
I absolutely love this verse, in fact, right now my husband has this as the signature of his text messages, we both do this, we pick a verse that we love or that has recently spoken something to us, for one so that we can see it but also so when we send a text to someone they either know that scripture or could look it up and get something from it as well, what are some ways you like to use to get God’s word out there?
