Have you ever realized that the default of life on earth seems to be negative. Ignorance comes before wisdom and each of us must start by crawling before we can walk, and we must stammer before we can learn to speak clearly. Struggles in most cases precede success and pain must come before the crown. This reminds me the story of creation. The scriptures says that the earth was formless and dark before any life came to be on earth. The story of creation did not begin in good order but in disorder. That means we should not be worried by things that are not working in our lives because every time God comes where there is disorder, things change and life is birthed. The fact that we are in problems does not mean God is done with us but to the contrary God is starting with us. Disorder is not evidence of Gods absence but rather an indication of somewhere God can get started. We may never understand why chaos appear to monopolize most of our lives but we can take comfort knowing that although unseen, God’s spirit hovers over the chaotic areas of our lives. There is no dead situation in our lives where God’s spirit cannot speak life. We should not agree to give up no matter how grave our circumstances appear. God ordered that each day must start with a night before a morning can show up. Where are you in the verge of giving up and you are wondering what to do? Where are things appearing so chaotic that hope appears distant? In what area of life are you about to write yourself off? Creation is always chaotic before God speaks order. You darkness will turn to light when you invite God into your situation. It’s never over until God says it’s over. Your situation may just change beginning now!
“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.” Genesis 1:31 NIV
