God Spoke
welcome to today's word of encouragement from our daily bread devotional for today is titled God spoke and it was written by Marvin Williams
 at 1876 inventor Alexander Graham Bell spoke the very first words on a telephone he called his assistant Thomas Watson saying Watson come here I want to see you crackly an indistinct but intelligible Watson heard what bell had said the first words spoken by Bell over a phone line prove that a new day for human communication at dawn
 establishing the dawn of the first day into the formless and empty Earth God spoke his first words recorded in scripture let there be light these words were filled with creative power he spoke and what he declared came into existence God said let there be light and so it was his words produced immediate Victory as darkness and Chaos gave way to the Brilliance of light and Order light was God's answer to the dominance of darkness and when he created the light he saw that it was good God's first words continue to be powerful in the lives of Believers in Jesus with the dawning of each new day it's as if God is restating his spoken words in our lives when darkness literally and metaphorically gives way to the Brilliance of his light may we praise him
 acknowledge that he's called out to us and truly sees us
 today's our daily bread devotional scripture reading are the very first words in your Bible is from Genesis chapter 1 verses 1 through 4
 in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth 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 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
 let's pray creator of light Holy Father we praise you for dispelling the darkness of this world for opening our eyes to you and your presence in our life as you create new life in us through your son Jesus may we spread your light and Life to others and it's in your name that we pray Lord Jesus amen
