Experience, Expect and Engage the Holy Spirit
Week #1 - The "RUACH" of God

The Hovering Spirit of God
Genesis 1:1-2

In the beginning, all is formless, everything is waiting, nothing is finished. Some translations say all is chaos, waiting the touch of the Creator. And the Spirit is hovering over everything. Then come a series of statements (with some variety in form) from God: Let there be. And the hovering Spirit went into action with each command. And it was.

This is what the Spirit does. The Spirit shapes, forms, and develops what is waiting for the creative power and life of God. It is the Spirit of life and the Spirit who gives life ( John 6:63; 2 Corinthians 3:6). The Spirit is everywhere. The Psalmist asks, “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?” (Psalm 139:7).

The Spirit of God is always at work to bring you MORE life, to move you farther along the Christian journey, to take you deeper into the heart of God.

REFLECT & PRAY: What is still unformed in your life that needs the attention of the Spirit? Or where do you see the need for growth by the Spirit? Ask the Spirit to form and shape those areas of life.

Where is there chaos in your life? Where is life messy and hard and confusing? Ask the Spirit to hover over that chaos and bring order and peace.
