Pastor Commentary:

What a beautiful way to start a Book (and the year 2014)! The earth was ‘without form and void’ (v 2), and God speaks creation into being. Does anyone out there feel like your life is sometimes without form and void? Like things are a little messy? God promises that when His Holy Spirit is present to effect change, all it takes is speaking the Word of God into a situation to change everything. God is bigger than the universe and even existence itself, which means He is DEFINITELY bigger than your problems. Let’s learn to delight in His Word this year as a church. Let’s meditate on it day and night as a family (Ps 1:2). Let’s speak God’s Word over our circumstances – and our lives – and watch God reorder them in His favor.


“Father, help me to know Your Word. Help me to delight in Your promises! Remind me to speak Your Word out over every situation in my life, knowing that You are the God who created the universe. You can change anything because You created everything!”
