And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Genesis 1.2.

“Moved” in the original means novered” or “brooded” over. This meaning reveals a picture of loving-kindness and sensitivity. It is the same word used in Deuteronomy 32.11 in describing a mother eagle with her eaglets; and how God is the same: “As an eagle that stirreth up her nest, that fluttereth over her young, he spread abroad his wings, he took them, he bare them on his pinions.” May we respond to the love of God! How His heart does desire after us! And who are we? Nobody but sinners—nobody but fallen men! Yet He is not angry at us, nor does He despise or forsake us. He does not consider us as being unworthy for the Holy Spirit to brood over.
