TODAY’S TEXT: "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"(Genesis 1:2)
TODAY’S WORD: UNTIL THE SPIRIT WAS SUPPLIED THE WORK OF CREATION DID NOT BEGIN
In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth that we saw recorded in Genesis 1:1. However what followed in verse 2 shows the work of creation was not as smooth as intended: the earth was without form and void. Without form and void meant the earth was shapeless and without nothing. This was not what God intended to see. And there and then the Spirit of God went into operation and the work of creation was renewed. Whatever God said at this point began to work.
This passage of scripture must have inspired what David wrote in Psalm 104:30 where he said God sends forth his Spirit and creation was renewed and recreated!
Until there was a supply of the Spirit even God struggle with the work of creation, but as soon as the Spirit hovered over the earth, the work of creation was over in no time!
The Spirit first need to move for the word of God to have an effect! Unction was the force behind creation! When the Spirit of God is supplied the word of God begins to have effects! From here on the word will begin to have effect in your life!
Even Jesus had no ministry for 30 years until the Spirit was supplied. His initial inertia was due to lack of the Spirit. But once the Spirit was supplied the bible said "he began to be" in other words, things begin to happen! Onward from Luke 3:21-23, things were never the same in the ministry of Jesus, the supply of the Spirit activated new levels of results. From Luke 3 he got filled, in Luke 4 he moved into a higher level of anointing, was tempted by the devil, gave his historic message that got the Sadducees infuriated and they wanted to kill him. But 'he walking through their midst went his way'. In Luke 5 he preached and the 'power of the lord was present to heal them'(Luke 5:17). In Luke 6 the whole multitude "sought to touch him for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all"(Luke 6:19).
Once the Spirit was supplied the spiritual progression and impact in the ministry of the master multiplied.
What have you struggled with? Battled with? Stayed on the same spot with? The supply of the Spirit will change your spiritual inertia, momentum and push you into your destiny. All you need is the supply of the Spirit for a supernatural turn around.
TODAY’S PRAYER: Lord I receive a fresh supply of your Spirit to break every spiritual limitation in my life.
