Genesis 1:2 tells us the Spirit of God (ruah) hovered over the waters. What did that look like? Have you ever tried to recreate that in your mind?
The theme for B90X 2016 at CRBC is “The Presence of the Lord.” As we read through the Bible this time around, ask Father to show you his presence in the story. Where does he show up? How does He interact with the folks the story is written about?
How is His presence tangible, real, manifested, or obvious? How does the Lord present himself in a story? How does that presence minister to folks? Is it a blessing? Sometimes it is not.
Right out of the gate, the Holy Spirit is present with us. He hovered. He was right there. His presence is so thick, it covers and hovers. The word for hover there has all sorts of meanings. It can also mean brooding, gently moving, or even, fertilizing. Fertilizing? That is cool. Fertilizer has to come in contact with something for it to have an effect. And what an effect it can have. Whatever the fertilizer touches is affected. It can’t be the same. The same with the Holy Spirit. Whatever it touches is never the same. I don’t want to be the same- touch me Holy Spirit. Help me grow, help me be more like Jesus, help me to know you more intimately.
For a complete schedule of the readings go here. We’d love for you to join us on the journey.
