Topic: In The Beginning, God Said (Open Heaven 1 January 2021)
Memorise: And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. – Genesis 1:3
Read: Genesis 1:1-5 (KJV)
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
Bible In One Year: Genesis 1-3
When God speaks, it is done. This is because there is power in His word (Hebrews 4:12). I congratulate you today because the Almighty who knows no impossibility (Luke 1:37) is saying to you on the very first day of this year that you will never suffer again. Everything He has planned for you shall come to pass this year in Jesus’ name.
However, you must become a member of God’s family for His word to impact your life positively. To have the Light of God in your life throughout this year, you must repent of your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord. It is impossible for your ”New Year Resolutions” to withstand the test of temptations without the power in the blood of Jesus that was shed for the remission of sins (Matthew 26:28).
After inviting Jesus to become the Lord over your life, you must ensure that you continue to dwell in Him permanently. He is the only Light that can keep you out of darkness and see you successfully through this year and beyond (John 8:12).
Darkness is the opposite of light and it represents all forms of evil. Thus, when God commands light into anyone or anything, it simply means that darkness has been ruling over that person or thing. From the Bible reading of today, you will see that the world was deep in chaos, darkness and was without form. However, God spoke, as He is speaking to you on this significant day. He said ”…Iet there be light” and there was light. Today, I command light to shine into your life and repel every form of darkness, in the mighty name of Jesus.
The Lord has promised us that as we walk in the Light, we will fellowship with Him, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son will cleanse us from all sin (1 John 1:7).
Remain faithful to your decision to follow Jesus throughout this year and your mouth will be full of testimonies of God’s goodness in the mighty name of Jesus.
If anybody asks you why you are so sure, tell the fellow that it is because God has said it. Hallelujah!
Happy New Year!
Father, thank You for bringing me into another year. Please, let the power in Your word bring Your promises to pass in my life and family, in the mighty name of Jesus.
“Great is Thy faithfulness!”
“Great is Thy faithfulness!”
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided –
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!
