1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.Genesis 1:1-5
God created the heavens and the earth on the first day.
Of course He’s God. I’m sure He didn’t have a steady stream of e-mail and phone calls interrupting His train of thought every time He was just about to say, “Let there be light.”
Obviously I’m not God and my work is nothing like that of creating the universe. But today I want to strive to be more like God in two ways:
- The Holy Spirit may not hover over the face of my work in the same way He hovered over the face of the waters at the creation (I love that image). But I pray that I will feel His presence and serve Him well in what I do.
- After God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light, He took a moment to look at His work and saw that it was good. I want to do that at least once today, to step back and look at what I have done so far and see that it was good.
