And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And 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. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
“And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep” – This is exactly what the world is facing right now. Darkness is everywhere; corruption, perverseness, inordinate affection and lust as never known before is the order of the day. Sin and darkness plagues every facet of human existence. Molestations, cruel abuses and breach of trust, dishonesty and lies, wars and WMD unleashed, terrorism and suicide bombings on every soil. Humanity is on the brink of anarchy.
“And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters”– Amidst all these, God is still there. His seemingly silence does not mean acceptance but rather “patience not willing that any should perish but that all should coume to repentance.” The Spirit of God is watching, to see what believers will do. Watching to see who will go on their knees and intercede for the nations till revival comes.
“And God said, Let there be light: and there was light”.- God dispelled the darkness by speaking forth. His Word was the answer and is the answer to the darkness we face today. His Word, His Son (John 1:1-2). Jesus is the answer for the world, the only Way that darkness and flee from our lives and all that pertains to us. He is the Light of this world. The only way, the only solution to all these headaches and heartaches we face is Jesus. When we invite and allow Him to take lead us day by day through His word, then darkness surely will flee.
“And God saw the light, that it was good:” -God saw the Light was good. Light is always good. Jesus is the true epitome of Light for He is light and in Him dwells no darkness at all. Hence he will surely be good. He only does and makes things good. No matter how the world in its perverseness tries to portray Him, He is still good. That is His nature, and when we follow in His footsteps, goodness flows through us like a river. If all the world follows Him, darkness and evil will disappear for good will surely triumph.
“And God divided the light from the darkness” – God divided the two because there’s no friendship, no connection, no relationship between light and darkness, between God and Satan. You either have one or the other. Both cannot exist in your life. You cannot serve both God the Light and Satan the father of darkness. At each point, one is always your Master. Trying to have both is to deceive ourselves. So let us as children of the Light live according to our profession.
“And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night“– Note the capital letters. These are not just times of the day, they are personalities one must not trivial with. Jesus is the Light, the Day and Satan is the Darkness, the Night. We must reckon with this and be careful how we live our lifes, be careful who we obey and heed to. We are either servants to the Light or slaves to the Darkness, the choice is ours.
Who rules your life, who you obey is who your master is. May we be in word, in truth and in deed children of the Light; for the world will become a better place when all mankind submit their lifes and their hearts to the Light, to Christ.
