Genesis 1 – Order Out of Disorder

Genesis 1

Genesis 1 paints the picture of a God that brings order out of the disorder. The earth was “without form and void” and after God speaks the earth becomes a paradise. As I think about this I come face to face with the reality of the disorder that we still find in the world.

Today we have disorder in the world and we have disorder in our lives. There are families that are rocked by disorder. Today there are lives that look like formless voids. It is here that our scripture speaks to us. For in the beginning God spoke order into disorder which speaks to God’s ability to do the same thing again today.

God speaks and order jumps out of disorder. Today we can praise God that God still speaks and God’s word still does the same thing.
