3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
God’s first recorded word in the bible is the word “let”. When He said “let there be light”, He was giving permission for light to come forth.
The quantum physics of the 21st century has discovered that at its core all matter is light. Everything we sense in this world is actually made up on tiny sub atomic particles of light! When God spoke, His creative power gave light, that most basic building block of creation, a permission to come forth.
Then God said, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.”
What a beautiful picture. God, the great creator, speaks the word and releases the newly formed life to be what it is He intended them to be.
Everything has a function and everything has a place. Why? Because God “let” it.
You and I too are part of that creation and you and I too have a function and place in God’s perfect created order. God created you with a purpose in mind, a life to live, and an assignment to fulfil.
But what’s more than that, it is the living and active Word of the God that once spoken gives you permission to find it and fulfil it. It’s His word that will “let” you be you in Him.
PRAY: When you see a bird flying, naturally and without any stress or strain, remember this. Pray and ask God to lead you to find what He would have you in this world to do. He has a call and purpose for your life. Agree with Him today concerning your place in His perfect created order.
