Let There Be Light

“Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.”

Genesis 1:3 NLT

 

If you don't know already, my mum is amazing. She is just one of those women that I aspire to be like in many ways. She is strong, faithful, loving and loyal to a fault. That woman would go to war for me without a reason, she'd armour up and be ready for the fight. However, one of the traits I admire in her the most? - her ability to make things happen, when the odds are so greatly stacked against her. My goodness, if I had more characters to write I would give you some examples. Of course, she has never been alone, God has been with walking with her for her entire life. His presence in her life without fail, delivers the most incredible spectacles out of absolutely nothing. It blows my mind.

 

“Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.”

Genesis 1:3 NLT

 

What fascinates me is God, the creator of the universe could have said ANYTHING for light to appear, but instead, he chose to instruct the darkness to LET the light in. Just to blow your mind further, God did not put the sun, moon, or stars in the sky for another three days, so whatever was lighting up the universe at this point remains a complete mystery to me, your guess is as good as mine. This fact alone is enough to tell me that God does not need the conventional factors we think he does to meet our needs. He will make light with no sun, stars or moon. There is no situation, no matter how barren, or dark, that the one who breathed stars into the sky cannot illuminate.

 

God is a God that continually in scripture, and even today makes more than we could ever have imagined, out of less than we ever could have expected. He is the ultimate creator. He is the God that taught my mother to read without books, He is the God that helped her raise FIVE GIRLS (that was definitely God) alone and put all of them through university. He is the God that sent enough rain to flood the entire earth when it had never rained before (reference Noah's ark), and He is the God, who rescued humanity in its entirety with a baby.

 

But God is a gentleman, just like He spoke to the darkness, we have to LET there be light. Speak to those dark situations and instruct them to LET there be light. Give permission for a wonderful father to light up the places in your life that have known nothing but darkness. And don’t be discouraged if you think there is nothing in you to work with, the good news is, God doesn't need anything. The only thing He needs is the voice of his child, asking him to come in, and let there be light.
