“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.” (Genesis 1:1-3)
With God appearing in verse 1, and the Spirit moving in verse 2, then the Word (Christ) is the light in verse 3; thus the Godhead (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) appears in the first three verses in Genesis.
Notice that the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. The water was there, the darkness was there, and the Spirit of God was there. But nothing really happened until words were spoken. God said, “Let there be light” and light came into existence. It only happened when God spoke. God's words were His creative power yet many people underestimate the power of words.
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. (Genesis 1:3)
How true is the word of God: “The entrance of Your words gives light;It gives understanding to the simple.” (Psalm 119:130)
