Anglican Devotional 1 June 2024: Let There Be Light And There Was Light

The Daily Fountain Devotional of the Church Of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) 1 June 2024 – Let There Be Light And There Was Light

TOPIC: Let There Be Light And There Was Light

READ: Genesis 1:1-5

  1. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
  2. 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.
  3. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
  4. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.
  5. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.


At creation, the Bible affirms that the “…earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep… and God said, Let there be light and there was light” (Genesis 1:2&3). God brought the light into being to dispel darkness and reveal the beauty of His creation. Light is the opposite of darkness and everyone knows that darkness is associated with confusion, evil and death. The advent of light makes darkness lose its power and influence, and announces the beauty of all hidden treasures. It is interesting to note that when darkness was the major characteristic of the empty earth, God commanded light into being.

Beloved, it is possible that darkness has covered your life and probably your business or family. It is possible that before now you might have been living in a state of confusion and under satanic influence. However, God who commanded light into the darkness of the world, is still the same today (Hebrews 13:8). If you have received the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you have been given the authority over snakes and scorpions and all the powers of darkness, and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10:19). All you need to do is to declare light into the darkness of your life and there will be light. If you have not surrendered your life to Jesus Christ, you have to do so in order that darkness will vacate your life (John 1:9). There will be light in your life today!

PRAYER: Father, let there be light in my life today, in Jesus’ mighty name.
