There is something that has been on my mind for a couple days. The scripture is found in Genesis 1.

Genesis 1:1-3 says; ‘In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 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. And God said, let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good.’

Let’s look at a few definitions of words found in this scripture.

Void means empty or waste.

Form means confusion, and place of chaos.

Darkness is defined at to hover.

Light is defined as the light of daybreak, light of prosperity and the dawn of a new day.

Of course, we are all familiar with Genesis 1 – it is the beginning of the word of God. But I want to talk to you today about God speaking into the darkness, without being moved by it.

Let’s break this scripture down by the definitions of the words I pulled out. The world was void, empty, a wasteland…filled with confusion and chaos. Nothing but darkness hovered over this place.

Then God spoke into the darkness and declared ‘light be’ knowing He was saying it is the dawning of a new day! Daybreak come! Prosperity fill the earth! The Bible says, then God saw that it was good.
God wasn’t moved by what He saw or felt. He simply spoke into the darkness, to declare the vision He had on the inside … and then things changed.

Now, let’s look at the word move. It means…to impel; to carry, convey or draw from one place to another; to cause to change place or posture in any manner or by any means. to affect; to agitate; to rouse; to persuade; to prevail on; to shake; to agitate.

Today, I want to ask you a question; what moves you?

When you look at the parts of your life or the lives of your loved ones that do not look the way you want them to look or the way you have prayed they look…what moves you?

Does the darkness move you?

I love the definition of move that is to shake or to agitate. What shakes you when things don’t go the way you want them to? Is it a conversation with your child? Or what you see in your spouse? What moves you in your finances…is it your checkbook balance? Or is it the pile of bills you have in your hand? What shakes you? What moves you?

We must always remember that we are made in the image of God. We can do the same thing He did. We can look at the darkness, whatever it may be, and speak into it and cause things to change.

We have the authority to speak to the mountain and it will move. God has given us that authority.

Mark 11:22-24 says; “Have faith in God,” Jesus said to them. “Truly I tell you that if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and has no doubt in his heart but believes that it will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

One translation says ‘Have the GOD-kind of faith.’ What does that mean? That means, just like God, don’t be moved by whatever chaos and confusion is surrounding you. Don’t be moved by what appears to be void and empty. Don’t be moved or shaken by the darkness. Instead, like God, speak into the darkness and command the dawn of a new day.

Command the day of a new day in your finances. Command the dawn of a new day in your family. Command the dawn of a new day in your body. Whatever you need, speak to it and command the light of God’s word to invade it and change it now, in Jesus name.

It’s time to become immovable in God. It’s time to speak and declare the dawn of a new day. Praise the Lord!
