You see God spoke the world into existence, and God spoke you into your mother’s womb. Even now, God wants to speak into the chaos and confusion of your life to bring it shape and form.
This is what I call a Genesis event. It’s when God speaks into the void and the darkness of your life, creating for you a new beginning and a fresh start. Did you know God can create something from nothing; He can take a heart that is broken, impure, or failed and create a heart that is whole, pure, and purposeful. God created you to soar, so He takes an active role in creating your new heart, and bringing order to the chaos of your life. We have one responsibility in tough times; surrender to His sovereignty, humble ourselves before Him, and ask for His help.
Let God speak a Genesis moment into your heart and into the circumstances of your life. Let me encourage you never forget, “everything that you have–right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start—all of it comes from God by way of Jesus Christ”. Our genesis experience is a result of allowing God to renew in each of us a firm and focused spirit no longer chaotic or moved by events, circumstances, or feelings. When God speaks even in our chaos we experience a new energy, new enthusiasms, and fresh passions. With that in mind let’s live His life out loud…
