TITLE: Close to Nothing
“The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.”
There was nothing… The Earth was formless. Darkness covered EVERYTHING. …yet God was near, hovering, close.
Today is day 1/365 of the year. As I stare at the year ahead, it may seem as if I have nothing. It’s dark. From a relational, financial, emotional standpoint, sometimes I feel wiped so clean that I feel like I have nothing. I have nothing to offer. I have nothing left. I lost it. Here’s the beauty of it… God is close to nothing. He’s with me, seeing what it can be, imagining what I’ll see and do this year. I don’t have nothing, I have God and He’s CLOSE TO NOTHING! A single word has eternal ramifications.
Father may I be grateful. In what looks like nothing, may my faith increase as I see you near, hovering, close to nothing. I have you, that gives me the winning hand. May this year be filled with wins that steamed from potential, may the dreams imagined become the realities that I consider “GOOD” this year. In Jesus name, amen!
