Separation. This word can have such a negative connotation. Separation is associated with job loss, divorce, death, and even surgery. However, since the beginning of time, separation was instrumental in the creation of all things.
If you read Genesis chapter 1, the first thing God did was create heaven and earth. Verse 2 (KJV) tells us “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.” Catch it:
Earth existed but without form and it was void. Translation: From a “surface view”, there were no defined seas, oceans, lakes, or rivers, and neither were there any discernible landmasses.
The account even says that darkness was upon the face of the deep. How many times have we looked at certain areas of our lives–certain goals, dreams, or desires–and felt as if there was no form, nothing defined, and no light. But we would do well to remember the story of creation.
God created the heavens and earth is referenced before we are told about the earth existing without form, void, and darkness. But next we are told that the Spirit of God MOVED and that is where we continue the work of God’s hands in creation.
The lesson of the day: It doesn’t matter what seems dark, shapeless, and void in your life if God moves. There are things that are delayed, appear dead, and hopeless until God MOVES. And what happens when God moves in your life and calls those things that are not as though they were (Romans 4:17, KJV)?
Everything we are, everything we own, and everything we could ever enjoy on this earth was created on the six days that God worked as detailed by Genesis chapter 1. God blessed what His hands had created as well as provided instruction. Lastly, and most importantly, he viewed what He had created and declared it was good. You and I are included as part of what He deemed as good.
There is no clarity nor creation without SEPARATION. Embrace the separation process so you can receive your inheritance.
