In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
Genesis 1:1-2 (ESV)
Even in the void, God is there. In the darkness when nothing else seems to exist, God is there. The Amplified Bible says, “The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters.”
No matter how dark or empty or void life may seem to be, God can still move. God does still move. His Spirit is always moving over, in, and through creation. That is how it has always been. Before anything else existed, God’s Spirit was moving, hovering over the deep. That is how it will always be.
