Genesis 1:2-3(KJV) 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. 3. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Josh finished from the university with a very good grade. His friend Joe got employed immediately but Josh went between unemployment and underemployment for years. Even though he served God the best way he could, it seemed Josh was not getting any reward for his work. He was insulted and called names because he wouldn’t compromise his faith to get a job. There was a good job he missed because he wouldn’t lie about his age.

During His period of waiting, Josh used the time he had to study and learn more of God and further grow spiritually. He also invested time in self and professional improvement.

Eleven years after he graduated school, Josh got a big contract, and everything changed for good. In only a few months, Josh achieved more than all his friends put together.

We can see from today’s Bible text that even though the Holy Spirit was present, the earth was void and in darkness. Does it sound contradictory?

God has his calendar and there are certain things His Spirit does in us during our periods of waiting. They are usually things of preparation for the glory He wants to bring to us. Yielding to the Holy Spirit’s work of purification and preparation shortens the wait period.

Go into today holding on to God. Do not let circumstances control your faith. Let your faith control your circumstances.

Prayer: Thank God for what He has done and what He will do. Thank God for His great promises that will come to pass in your life.
—Dr James Emmanuel & SD Abraham
