Skies and lands hidden in the womb of the waters =>
Yesterday we introduced the topic of facilitating a place where God’s dreams (His word and will) can be created and carried out . Today the introduction is of the waters which encapsulated the skies and lands (the place of His facilitation).
At one time this place-this earth was fully encapsulated within the waters which we now call oceans, streams, seas, and rivers.
Just for a minute let’s take a breathe and look into our divine imagination and ask Holy Spirit to “see & hear” what the 2nd day of creation would of sounded like…
…later we will have another thought to ponder ….
Here we go — the firmament/the expanse, the 2nd day:
Then God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters,
and let it separate the waters from the waters.”
God made the expanse, and separated the waters which were below the expanse
from the waters which were above the expanse;
and it was so. God called the expanse heaven.
And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.”
The word firmament is רָקִ֖יעַ, ‘raqia’ in Hebrew (the language of the Old Testament). The firmament is a substance which is known as the dome of the sky that separates the heavens from the earth, or an area of atmospheric space, either relatively close to the ground or in the upper limit of the sky and heavens.
When God Spoke, the waters responded to His command, and shifted into their new place.
Imagination Activation: Wooo, can we imagine the sound of the waters parting; some to the earth (forming oceans, seas, rivers, creeks, lakes, ponds, water falls….) and some back into the heavens? Just imagine all of the water in the world today…these are the waters which shifted in that moment.
These are the very waters which the Holy Spirit hovered over, as they covered-protecting; within the “womb of the waters” the earth which was made for us to have, to enjoy, care for, live freely upon, and have dominion in.
This is the Holy Spirit who is larger than the entire universe, land, and seas put together. There is no beginning and end to Him. Holy Spirit is beyond what we can “size” with our mind or measuring sticks.
It was in this very moment, as the waters heard the sound of their Creator that the very substance transitioned into their next assignment. They began with all of the sound, weight, and depth of their reality; to roll back, revealing the wonder of the sky and earth hidden within their dominion.
God You are incredible in design.
So too for us, what the soil of our lives is meant to become is sometimes hidden from our earthly eyes. This doesn’t mean that God has forgotten us, it simply means that the presence of Holy Spirit is surrounding us-holding us so close, for the moment of “revealing.”
What an awestruck moment to have observed the dividing of the waters and the revealing of the skies and lands.
We are living in awestruck moments now, when Papa is about to reveal the “land” of the younger generation in preparation for the forming of their first, second, and third decades of life. Can I say it that way?
