Faith in the God of Creation!
Sing praises on the harp to our God, who covers the heavens with clouds, who prepares rain for the earth.
Psalm 147:7–8, nkjv
Although God was actively involved throughout the Creation process, in the beginning the “earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep” (Gen. 1:2, niv). If you and I had been present at that time to view the earth, we might have had the impression that because we could not see any evidence of God’s activity, He was not doing anything. Yet at that very time, “the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters” (Gen. 1:2, niv). He was actively preparing Planet Earth to receive His Word and be transformed into a place of beauty and purpose.
Are you concerned for a friend whose life is like “the surface of the deep”—undulating, unstable, always changing, and moody? Even though you have prayed without ceasing, have you seen no evidence of God’s activity in that person’s life? Have you therefore concluded that God is not active? Place your faith in the God of Creation and be encouraged! He is active whether or not you and I can see evidence of His activity.
