Whenever I hear the word NOTHING, the first thing that comes to my mind is LACK. It may be lack of patience, insufficient finances, or scarce love.
However, the 10th week devotional in Refuel made me think and realize not to dwell on the negative side of nothingness–to look at how the nothingness can turn to everything.
One good example of nothingness turning to everything is the first chapter of the book of Genesis. Where there was only dark, formless earth and heaven. In one command of God, light was created, day and night, water and land, living creatures like animals and trees, and then human.
Billion years ago, this universe was empty, blank and dark, it was NOTHING. At present, this universe is our EVERYTHING.
Realization: Feeling nothing? God can turn it to everything. The darkness we feel inside can turn to a light and one day we will shine.
Lacking patience? Insufficient finances? Scarce love? These can be God’s instrument for us to become everything we need to be.
