Artist Curated by
2 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.
The Spirit of God is the first mover; He moved upon the face of the waters.
Herein is hope: the Spirit of God begins to work. And if he works who will hinder?
God’s Spirit moved upon the deep; He is the fountain of life and spring of motion.
The first of all visible things the Lord God created was light. Not that He Himself needs to see in order to work, for the darkness and the light are the same to Him. Rather, He created it that by it we may see His works and His glory in them.
"For the one that practices the truth, comes to the light that his deeds may be manifest as having been founded in God." (John 3:21)
