What is “brooding” and awaiting “birth” in your life?

From Petersen’s (The Message) paraphrase of the Bible…(Genesis Chapter 1 v 1.)

“First this: God created the Heavens and the 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.”

Based on the above Scripture, three spiritual examen for the week ahead…

  1. What does it mean for you to believe and live in the knowledge and love of a “Creator God”?
  2. How do you recognise the “brooding Spirit” amidst your “watery abyss”?
  3. What is the Spirit seeking to give birth to in your life?
