Daily Scripture: Genesis 1:3-5

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day. ~Genesis 1:3-5

God said it and it was. He is so glorious that simply speaking His desires can make them happen. Can you image having the power to speak something and have it happen? I do not even want that kind of power if I could have it because a whole lot of things would be happening that would not remotely be of God. I would speak a Mercedes in my garage. There probably would be some people that just vanished into thin air. Debt? What debt? And all of a sudden that excess baby fat would just melt away.

No it is better that we do not have that type of speaking power. God knows that we would not be able to handle it. Nevertheless, He gave us all that we could handle. He gave us Jesus and through Him the Holy Spirit. Now, I believe, with that comes a little bit of something special. We are not going to create the earth or move mountains with our words but through the Holy Spirit working in our lives we can do great things for God. If through the guidance of the Holy Spirit we transform our thoughts into positive action, there is no limit to the awesome things that we can accomplish not only in our lives but in the lives of others. That in itself is a little piece of the astounding power of God.

Thought: This awesome God loves me!
