Gen 1:1-2 KJV In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (2) And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
In just the first three chapters of Genesis…
God moved from chaos to creation by speaking.
Adam moved from creation to chaos by silence.
When a man or woman will not speak to the elements, influences, opinions, temptations and various issues of life which pass through the home, they are permissive of the chaos that undoubtedly ensues. Chaos is the default result of no purposeful order that can only be brought by the power of speaking God’s word into your life and situations.
On one hand, this highlights one of the great sins of witnessing sin and speaking no Godly resistance to it.
On the other hand it gives us great encouragement in the promises we have where Jesus says we can speak to a mountain with enough faith, and can remove even that great an obstacle.
