“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. God called the light Day and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day” Genesis 1:1-5
In the beginning the earth was without shape, empty and was filled with darkness.
Ladies and Gentlemen, in this message, I am here to present to you that a life without divine intervention from God through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is without shape, it’s empty and is totally filled with darkness.
I don’t know about you but daily I thank God through Jesus who brought meaning to my life.
Beloved, no matter who you are or whatever your accomplishment is on earth, if the Word of God does not shape it, it is shapeless, empty and full of darkness.
Before His words became paramount in my life I thought I was doing fine. I thought I was enjoying life because I compared myself with my peers of likewise minded and not with the word of God UNTIL one day. I believe today is your DAY too because you are not reading this message by accident.
No matter what you do to fill that gap, it will never work. Maybe you love to drink to fill the emptiness, maybe it is religion (man made effort to please God without personal relationship through Jesus Christ). Maybe career or another degree course! Beloved, it does not matter what you do; ONLY God through His Son can fill the emptiness in your heart!
The word of God tells us that the god of this age has blinded the mind of those who do not believe lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ who is the image of God should shine on them. 2 Corinthians 4:4
When you are in darkness, you cannot see by faith! When you are in darkness, you can only lead others into the ditch hence the blind leading the blind end up in the ditch!
When you are in darkness you are under the control of evil, demonic powers. They manipulate you to their pleasure. You cannot discern right from wrong no matter how you try. All roads look the same because you are fill filled with darkness all around. In Proverb 4:19, the Bible says that the way of the wicked is like darkness, they do not know what makes them stumble”
In the order of creation, the first thing God did was to create light out of darkness.
I pray that in the name of Jesus where darkness has taken hold of your mind and life, may light begin to shine. Isaiah declared that you should arise and shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen up you. Isaiah 60:1
After light He brought forth shape
Ladies and Gentlemen, sin makes you loose shape. When you as a man created in God’s image through sin end up behaving like an animal, barbaric in behaviour, turned to be a murderer in word and action, in words because many have been killed by the words of others (their potentials killed, dream killed, passion killed, love killed) and action (to shoot or knife to dead) you loose your shape, and that is not the image of God in you.
When you are controlled and not in dominion according to Genesis 1:26-28 you are out of shape. The image of God that He came to restore is for you to have dominion and you will have dominion in Jesus name.
Jeremiah 18:1-6 reminds us of the life of clay in the hand of the potter. Beloved, there is a shape that God has in His mind about you when He made you. Get connected to Him today so that He can fashion you after that model. May your life never be shapeless. The world celebrates life that has meaning.
Finally remember, God created light from darkness before the shape was formed.I pray that your life will be filled with His light, be shaped according to His purpose and be full of grace, joy, His Presence, knowledge of His word! Every emptiness be filled with His peace that passes all understanding.
