I always love reading the creation story. And it's such a fitting way to start a new year - reading about the beginning of time as know it.
It's incredible to me to think about God being infinite - existing outside of time, having always been, and always will be.
The devotion I read today reminded me that before creation, there was nothing - it was a dark and barren wilderness - but that nothing, was brimming with possibility that only the power of the Word could ignite. God's Word was all it took to pierce the darkness and create light. God's Word was all it took to create the entire universe.
And for us now, God's Word and only His Word, can pierce the darkness of our hearts and bring forth light, can redeem us and give us life, can change us and make us whole, can shape us into something beautiful for His glory.
