He's Awaiting Your Words
"The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters." Genesis 1:2 NKJV
To hover is to remain in the air, not moving in any direction, just waiting. The Bible says that the Holy Spirit was hovering over the face of the waters. Doing what? He was waiting for God to speak and set Him in motion.
The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep, yet the Holy Spirit was there! Doing nothing, just hovering. Until God spoke, the Holy Spirit did nothing; until God spoke, nothing happened. Isaiah 34:16 reveals to us that when God gives an order, His Spirit acts upon it. It says, “Search from the book of the Lord, and read: not one of these shall fail; not one shall lack her mate. For My mouth has commanded it, and His Spirit has gathered them."
The Holy Spirit is here with us today, just as He was with God in the beginning, and with Jesus when He was here on earth. You may have been wondering why things have remained the same despite the fact that the Holy Spirit is with you. He's awaiting your words! There was darkness until God said, "Let there be light". The moment God said it, the Holy Spirit swung into action and fulfilled the word of God. Hallelujah! Don't be quiet, be a talker! When you want something done, get the word of God into your mouth and speak it into existence! If you dare to say it, the Holy Spirit will bring it to pass. Amen
