God Saw That The Light Was Good
Have you examined the stages how God created the earth? Let’s begin from the beginning, shall we? According to Genesis 2:1-5, it revealed in the beginning, God saw the light as good.
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. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.
Genesis 2:3, was the first command that God spoke to the earth. He saw that which was good.. Today we look at that power coming from it, why is it good as God sees it? We also look at the 4 aspects of what it is able to do.
Light Separates Darkness
It exposes what is hidden in the darkness because the nature of sin is the tendency to hide from God. For example, when Adam and Eve first realized they had sinned and disobeyed God’s instruction given to them, (Genesis 3) they hid from Him. Light exposes what is hidden in the dark. In Fact, God let Adam and Eve know that He was with them when He asked: ‘Where are you Adam? He let them know He cared because He went looking for them in the Garden of Eden. Therefore, the idea that God doesn’t care does not sit well at all. Are you hiding from God today?
It Pierces Through Darkness
The only source that is able to break through darkness and darkness disappears. The darkness of evil is overcome by it According to 1 John 1:5, it says in the Bible:
5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
The message shows God is able to defeat evil that is darkness. The power of God is greater than the darts of the evil. So, believe it and live in the power of God.
It Shines And Darkness Flees
When God says: ‘Go Light Your World’, He’s telling us that we are not alone when we choose to walk with Him. God is light, remember? He defeats all darkness. Therefore, darkness flees.
It Is Able To Cleanse And Heal
The power not only overcomes, it also cleanses those who choose to walk in it. Nothing is impossible for the power of God, to transform, to regenerate, and to restore. He does not simply say: ‘Go Light Your World’, He explains further.
Why? Simply because ‘now is the time’. As our generation grows darker and darkness seems to overwhelm us, God is saying His power that resides in us, is able to overcome all darkness. Most of all, God desires that we do not to live in fear.
Come out of that darkness and be that light so others around us will live in that same freedom we have. The freedom to follow where He leads and places you. Be bold and strong to shine where you are and be His beacon that others will see God through you. Thus, bringing Him the glory due His name.
