Stop! Stop trying to “make” it a great day, and begin to “create” your great day. The reasoning is because you were created by a creative God; He specializes in CREATING and not making. Beloved, you can make a cake because you have all of the ingredients. You have the flour, eggs, milk, etc. If you have all the ingredients you can make it. God wanted me to tell you that there are going to be days in your life when you will not have all the “ingredients” to make a great day; so stop “making” and begin CREATING.
There is a difference in “making” vs. “creating.” As we read in Genesis Chapter 1 notice that God did not make the heavens and earth, God created heaven and earth. God had to create it because He did not have anything to start from. If you look even more closely, the only thing God had was chaos. The first 5 verses of the Bible inform us that God brought order out of chaos. Did you get it? That word right there was just for you! Chaos always precedes order. Look at how the earth was described: void, darkness, and empty. Sometimes these adjectives describe may describe the various seasons in our lives. At some time or another we have found something about our lives that can be described with words such as “formless”, “empty”, and “dark.” You feel as if there is no hope – that everything is formless and empty, and that darkness covers everything- darkness in the mind, darkness on the job, darkness in the schools, darkness in the neighborhood and yes even sometimes darkness in the midst of the church. In darkness, you cannot see. In darkness you stumble and fall. That is what the devil will do to us. He will make it so we are unable to see. In darkness we cannot see our God-given vision. It is crucial that we understand that darkness can’t steal the vision but makes it so that you cannot see the vision. If any of the above describes you, I am so glad that you stopped by to read this blog because in Genesis 1 there is a life-changing word for you after reading and digesting these next few steps. I guarantee that you will internally take another great leap into your destiny and no longer “make it a great day” but CREATE your great day- your great life.
Your creative power is found in the first few verses of Genesis. You have that power because God said,through Jesus, you will not only be able to do what I have done, but you will do greater!
There are 3 powerful elements that were involved in the creation. To bring order out of chaos, you have already been endowed with 3 prevailing elements:
First, God used his MIND. God had a vision of how he wanted heaven and earth to look. God did not use the present state of heaven and earth to dictate the future of heaven and earth. The vision was beyond the present reality. Beloved, you must see yourself beyond your present state. God has more. You may being saying, “Where I am is great, all is well.” Guess what, God has even more! As a matter of fact, if your vision is not larger than your present reality you need to re-envision because God can do more than you can ever think or imagine. Nevertheless, it is important that our mind is focused. If the enemy can keep your mind off of God and the promises that He has spoken over your life then the enemy has you right where he wants you. When we focus our minds on the pain, the trouble, the dilemma, the fault, and the hassle it is difficult to envision healing, breakthrough, forgiveness, joy or that open door. Use your MIND!
Secondly, God used his MOUTH. The vision that was in his mind he spoke it with his mouth. In the midst of chaos, God begin to speak order. Don’t allow the enemy to muzzle your tongue as it relates to the goodness of the Lord or what the Lord has promised you. You must begin to speak those things that are not as though they are. A closed mouth never gets fed. My brother, my sister, open up your mouth and begin to speak the word of God over that situation. Begin speaking to God with a spirit of expectation. Don’t limit God by your personal limitations. Use your MOUTH!
Finally, we see the Spirit hovering over. You may have experienced flying and sometimes once you have reached your destination, Air Traffic Control has not cleared the plane for landing so the plane hovers over the airport. That is what the Spirit was doing- waiting for something to land on, waiting for God to speak so that it can give LIFE. Beloved, don’t be satisfied with the Spirit just hovering over you. Give the Spirit permission to land. Allow the Spirit to land on your God-given vision. Clear the way for the Spirit to land on your goals. The Spirit is hovering over your life- ready to bring LIFE to those dead situation but you have to SPEAK. You have to open your mouth. I promise that if you do that, watch chaos transform into order in your life. Use the SPIRIT!
One more thing. God dropped into my spirit for you that it took Him 6 days to create heaven and earth. Each time we brought order out of a chaotic situation, God celebrated. Beloved, make sure you celebrate each step you make. Celebrate each milestone, each objective; it doesn’t matter how big or small. CELEBRATE! God did, God said, “IT’S GOOD!” Create a great…
