In Genesis chapter 1 we all know this portion of the Bible as the unfolding of God and His mastery as He created the heavens and the earth. Even in these few verses we see several wonderful things about our creator and father. Have you noticed in verse 3 He gave to us examples to help us to understand Him and how He works in our lives.
The first example was He “said.” When God spoke – things came into existence. He has set up for us and shown us a wonderful example. Even Jesus when He walked on the earth was telling his followers to “say” or “speak to.” This is how we are to live; we are to speak to our situation and say what we want to come to pass! God was showing us as a Father shows his child what we are to do. He wants us to open our mouth and speak out. Speak into existence what we want to come to pass! Mark 11:23 promises us if we “say” to our mountain to be gone and believe it will be, then whatsoever we “said” shall come to pass! I can give you more scriptures to prove to you God wants you saying and speaking over your daily life but to me this one sums it all up!
“For truly I say to you, That whoever shall say to this mountain, Be you removed, and be you cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he said shall come to pass; he shall have whatever he said.” (American King James Version)
What is a mountain? Anything in front of you that is too big to conquer! Anything in your life that is standing in your way that you need the impossible done! Good news is…… you serve the one and only “possible maker” what is impossible for you IS possible for God! But first YOU must SAY and BELIEVE!!!!
Now notice the second example God gave us in verse 3. He was speaking and created light correct? Yes, but have you noticed that even though He created light in verse 3 it was not until later (we see it in 14-18) that He created the two great lights the sun and the moon! In verse 3 (or first) He created the “mixture” or the ability for light. He first made the declaration of light – in other words He was telling it what to do! He was giving the “revelation” of light first, then later the two lights followed. So here is the point; has God given you revelation of something in your life that has not yet come to pass? God will show something to you – giving you revelation first – then He will bring it to pass! You are not to look at your current situation and think “did I miss God?” Or “did I mess it up?” NO! God spoke revelation to you and it WILL come to pass!
As our Heavenly Father He has shown us what we are to do and how He works. We are to speak and declare and we are to stand and believe when He has given us revelation. You must know and understand when God gives you revelation it WILL change your situation!
