In the beginning the Word already existed.
The Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He existed in the beginning with God.
God created everything through Him,
and nothing was created except through Him.
The Word gave life to everything that was created,
and His life brought light to everyone.
The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness can never extinguish it.
John 1:1-5 (NIV)
Life and Light
And though it may seem
that darkness reigns,
it has not overcome.
And we stand
for believing in
spoke the world into being
and will not be extinguished
by the darkness in it.

So the Word became human and made His home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen His glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.
– John 1:14 (NLT)
I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
– John 16:33 (NLT)
The Lord merely spoke,
and the heavens were created.
He breathed the word,
and all the stars were born.
– Psalm 33:6 (NLT)
He sent out his word and healed them,
snatching them from the door of death.
– Psalm 107:20 (NLT)
Forever, O Eternal One,
Your word stands in heaven, firm and resolute.
– Psalm 119:89 (VOICE)
He sends out his command to the earth;
his word runs swiftly.
He gives snow like wool;
he scatters frost like ashes.
He hurls down his crystals of ice like crumbs;
who can stand before his cold?
He sends out his word, and melts them;
he makes his wind blow and the waters flow.
– Psalm 147:15-18 (ESV)
