January 1, 2018: SOAP #2951:  Genesis 1-2; Luke 1

Scripture:  Genesis (NIV) 1:1 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.

Observation:   The first things we learn about God in the Bible are in these verses.   First:   God exists.   There is no explanation of who He is or where He came from.   He is just there in the beginning.   Second:   God is the creator of all I see.   Third:   God speaks!   God is a speaker.

Application:   God has been faithful to speak to me every day during 2017 and I expect He will continue to do so in 2018.   Writing down these SOAP devotions causes me to read the Word in faith that He has something to say to me.

Prayer:     Holy Spirit, thank you for your faithfulness in speaking to me.   Use these daily devotions to encourage others to have faith that you are speaking to them also.   Amen
