“And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day” (Genesis 1:3-5).
Although the Spirit has all divine power, He never acts alone; He always waits for the Word. When the Father had drawn up His designs, the Word stepped into action, because God said, “‘Let there be light,’ and there was light” (Genesis 1:3). That Word, spoken by God, is Jesus Christ. John wrote, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made… The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:1-3 and 14).
The Father designs, the Spirit moves after awaiting the divine Word to act, and in the Word, all the power of God is released. This is how the miracle of creation happened; God turned what was dark and unpleasant into something beautiful, useful and productive. God does not change; in every situation we face, He works in the same way as He worked in creation.
The Bible enables us to believe in the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ; this faith makes us children of God and, as Peter said, participators of His divine nature. In other words, if the Father designs, then you are able to do the same. Faith enables you to dream and design, transforming, through faith, dark and unpleasant situations into something beautiful, useful and productive.
Once you have been able to create the design in your mind, you can present it to the Holy Spirit who moves in the midst of the chaos of your problems. You can then confess the Word which releases the power of God because we are instruments of God to change our own future, as well as the future of our loved ones and our nation, through the correct confession of the Word of God. In front of every one of us stand two gates; Jesus taught us that we should, “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” (Matthew 7:13-14).
