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. Genesis 1:2
Do things seem out of control in your life? Don’t try to fix what seems chaotic. God is an expert at bringing order out of
chaos! In Genesis 1:2 we learn that the earth was “without form.” The Hebrew word for “without form” is the word “tohuw.” One of the meanings of the word “tohuw” is literally “place of chaos.” Even though the earth was a place of chaos, when God spoke and said, “Let there be light” instantly “there was light” (Genesis 1:3). Notice that it was God who brought order from chaos and not a man. Similarly in our lives, God knows how to bring order at just the right
moment. Sometimes the more we try to fix something, the worse it can become. Be still and know that He is God (Psalms 46:10). He is an expert at bringing order from chaos!
