Devotional Nugget – When you’re looking at nothing

“I am commanding the nothing into something!! I have a builder’s anointing and it’s going to turn out like God said.” — This is my declaration to God and I thought I’d share it with somebody who needs reminding (like me).

I don’t know what God has told you to do but trust Him. I don’t know what He’s told you to build but trust Him. I don’t know what He told you to plant but trust Him. I don’t know where He told you to move but trust Him.

Sometimes we can get discouraged looking at the nothing while hearing God telling us to step out but trust Him.

The plan, place, people, provisions, protection, AND God’s promise will show up but you’ve got to do the work. Yes, it’s hard and a lot but it’s going to pay off.


“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.” — Genesis‬ ‭1‬:‭1‬-‭3‬ ‭NLT‬‬
