God The CreatorLent Devos
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 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.
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. ” Genesis 1:1-3
With the very breath of God the world and everything in it was created. As we begin our 40 Day Lenten Journey may we be reminded that the very breath that spoke Creation into existence is the very breath that sustains life today.
God’s breath separated the light from the darkness.
Where does the very breath of God need to separate the light from the darkness in your life? Allow His Holy Spirit to draw out the things in the shadows of your life that need to be tended to, rooted out, revealed, and given the breath and light of life.
Father in Heaven, breathe your Spirit into the darkest places of our heart, mind and soul. May your light sustain us and strengthen us during this journey of returning to you. In the name of your mighty, precious, and Holy Son, Jesus Christ. Amen!
