Re: Verse reading–Genesis 1:1-13 (day four)
From the very beginning, there was a separation between darkness and light. Darkness was the characteristic of the formless void, without God’s intervention. When God spoke and light was created, there has been a separation between darkness and light ever since. Light has been characteristic of the Spirit of God’s presence. Light overcame darkness…it always does. Holiness will always triumph over evil…it always does. God’s Spirit in our lives will overcome the darkness of evil surrounding us…it always does.
In the darkest days and moments of our lives…when discouragement and despair seems to overtake us…don’t let the lies of Satan convince you that there is no way out of the darkness. God created light…His Spirit is light…and no power of darkness can overcome it. We can trust in the all-powerful, unchanging, ever present God of the Universe, our Creator, to have victory. Our victory has already been won by the work of Jesus on the cross. And God said, “It is good!”
