2667 The Creative Work of the Spirit

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Gen. 1:1-2 ESV

The Holy Spirit has been there since the beginning. In Biblical terms there were first only raw materials, elements, chaotic mass, darkness. However, the Spirit of God brooded over “the deep”, and when God spoke His Word the Spirit started to order things. Light shone. Elements were structured; day was separated from night, dry ground from water. Then life erupted: plants, animals, people. When the Spirit’s work was done, earth was a paradise, green, lush, ready to be inhabited and worked by us, the “crown of God's creation”.

Wherever the Spirit moves, the Spirit creates. He brings order, structure, meaning. He restores and beautifies. When the Spirit comes into us, He starts to recreate what sin has broken. He restructures and refocuses our lives. He separates the good from the bad. He rejuvenates; He restores; He makes whole. Ask the Holy Spirit today to restore your life!

Heavenly Father, thank you for the Spirit’s creating and recreating work. Holy Spirit, sort out my life. Bring order in the chaos. Make something new, something beautiful, something meaningful. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
