Genesis 1:1 (NLT) — 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

The word ‘God’ here is plural. Right from the ‘get go’ we have the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit working together in unity and harmony having a blast creating! They were enjoying each other and enjoying their creation. They wanted the heavens and everything in it. They wanted the earth and everything in it. They wanted us and they loved us. They wanted all creation to enjoy the fellowship that they had. However sin came along and ruined the party; it changed the atmosphere, it crushed unity and harmony and it severed the fellowship.

But not to be deterred the Father, Son and Holy Spirit came up with a plan to restore unity, harmony, love and fellowship. Jesus was the plan! His death brought the life of creation back into our lives. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit now want to take up residence within us today. They want to restore that lost closeness of fellowship. Invite them in, yield to them, have fellowship with them. Ask them to create within you exactly what they were doing at creation. Be conscious of them today. Pray in tongues to get that creativity stirred up within you. Pray long and pray often and experience the unity and harmony of God within and let it out to those around you.

John 14:15–23 (NLT) — 15 “If you love me, obey my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. 17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. 18 No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you. 19 Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me. Since I live, you also will live. 20 When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. 21 Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.” 22 Judas (not Judas Iscariot, but the other disciple with that name) said to him, “Lord, why are you going to reveal yourself only to us and not to the world at large?” 23 Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them.
