God Can Make Something Out of You

First this: God created the Heavens and Earth—all you see, all you don’t see. Earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness. God’s Spirit brooded like a bird above the watery abyss. Genesis 1:1-2 (MSG)

Do you know anyone who has ever created something out of nothing?

I mean: nothing.

Not someone who can with a few brush strokes bring forth art. 

Not someone who can put a few stitches here and a few stitches there and come out with a dress.

I’m talking about someone who really creates out of nothing. Nada. Diddlysquat.

I don’t know anyone who has ever done that. Except for God.

Genesis tells us God created the earth out of nothing. 
I love that the bible tells us that. I love that it tells us God created all that we know out of zilch. 

The earth God created is beautiful, breathtaking and magnificent. 

No one would he ever think God made the earth out of nothing. 

Which makes me think that if God can create beauty out of vacuums how much more can he create with our lives?

Maybe you believe that you are worth nothing.

Or that if you weren’t around nothing would change in the world.

Perhaps you’re reading this thinking that you’ve got nothing to offer.

Or you’re the one thinking, “Why bother? Nothing will ever change.’’

Possibly, your life has been so broken, horrible and dark that you believe that nothing will ever be right again.

But all these nothings are nothing to God. 

If God could create the earth out of a void he can do something pretty amazing with the nothing you have to offer him.

God can take the “nothing” that you have and turn it into something beautiful, breathtaking and magnificent.

He’s done it before and God can do it with you.

Why not give God a chance to make something out of nothing with your life? Ask God to create something out of the nothings in your life this year. 

If you’ve seen God make something out of the nothings in your life please share in the comments. I really believe your story could be an encouragement to others.
