“Then the One sitting on the throne said, “See! I am making all things new. Write, for these words are true and faithful.” - Revelation 21:5

God has always been. When the Earth was formless and empty and darkness was over the surface of the deep, Holy Spirit hovered over the waters (Genesis 1:2). That hovering moves something in me. Before He brought nothing into something, He was hovering. Even now, in the nothing He remains steadfast in turning it into something.

I revel in the fact that He has always made nothing into something. Joy from mourning. Grace and mercy from sin and death. It’s His hovering that gives me peace. His notion that He will never leave and He finishes what He starts. That He knows what will be before it even gives life.

Verse 3 continues on like this, “and God said ‘Let there be light’ and there was light”. The light comes in His Presence. The Earth knows His voice and responds to His commands. Light comes from darkness. How beautiful it all became by His breath. How beautiful our change and the unknown will be by sitting in His Presence, waiting at His feet. Feeling the weight of His hovering. Seeing just how at the right time the light always peaks through.

My Jesus, You make all things new.
