“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 (KJV)
The more you look at what is happening around you today the more convinced you will be and the more you will agree with the world. You will panic like the rest of the world in search of solutions. But God has spoken! He has declared the end from the beginning. So do not panic. Stand firmly on the word of God. Be assured that God who has spoken can do all that He has promised.
One of the strategies of the devil is to magnify the challenges you are facing so that you lose sight of the promises of God. You may be experiencing a season of contradiction but don’t give up. Hold on to His word. He that has spoken can bring it to pass. You cannot be denied. Many may have seen you without hope but from the ashes of failure and hopelessness, God will show you up before them all. The same people who saw you in that state will see you with your testimony.
Genesis 1:1-3, gives us a clear template, on how to see the transformation in the midst of chaos or a contradictory situation. And if we will follow it, our expectations will manifest. Remember, the first thing is to know that your God is still the Almighty and the all-powerful God. Chaos does not diminish His power or His person. He still moves in the midst of chaos. Secondly, rest in Him. Rest in His promises. When we rest, we receive clarity on what to do per time. When we rest, it shows that we trust Him and God loves it when we display absolute trust in Him. It causes Him to flex His muscles.
Lastly, we need to speak the Word of God even in the midst of chaos. The Word of God has the power to turn things around. It is the Word of God that upholds all things, and so it will turn that situation around. This is your time of prophetic help. God is coming back to visit you again. You will experience a new beginning.
