And God Said, “Let There Be Light”

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light:” and there was light (Genesis 1:2-3).

This world is a dark place without the light and life of God. Men naturally walk in darkness. Their concepts and ideas are empty and vain. Only that which comes from God has real and lasting value. It is His life and viewpoint that brings true enlightenment to our hearts and minds. It is His Word that will transform our naturally darkened minds, making them beam in the fullness of light and understanding.

God has gloriously given us His rich Word to lighten our world. It alone is how we can find our way in the ever growing confusion and uncertainty of daily life.

The entrance of Your Words gives light … (Psalms 119:130).

Your Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path (Psalms 119:105).

We should read it (I Timothy 4:13), study it (II Timothy 2:15), meditate on it (Psalm 119:148), trust it (Psalm 119:42), and by God’s Own life and grace, live it (Philippians 4:9).

God’s Word will not be without profit. It will not return void. It will indeed be the great profit of our lives!

So shall My Word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it (Isaiah 55:11).

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable (II Timothy 3:16).

Let His Word be the very source of our life.

Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4).

Little wonder Job, though he had lost all earthly possessions, could say,

I have esteemed the words of His mouth more than my necessary food (Job 23:12).
