Genesis 1:1-5

The Beginning

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.

5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.


While the "days" of creation could be either a figure of speech or literal 24-hour periods, this passage is nevertheless an orderly narration of what took place. It tells us that there is intelligence, meaning and purpose behind all existence.

God spoke... and it happened, he did not touch it, build it, dream it, he SPOKE it into existance. How powerful God's words are in our lives. These scriptures are a way that God can speak to us today. Listen carefully, it is amazing what He has created in you!
