DAY FIVE - BIG PICTURE IN A YEAR - THE CREATION
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
Genesis 1: 1
Reading: Genesis 1
Over the next week or so, we are going to look at the particular order and structure that God used when He created. It’s a very fascinating study. As you read through Genesis 1 today, see if you can pick up the fact that God first created the framework, then added the filling. Like this:
|Days of Forming||Days of Filling|
|1. Light and Dark||4. Sun, Moon and Stars|
|2. Sea and Sky||5. Fish and Birds|
|3. Land and Plants||6. Land Animals and Humans|
How perfectly God thought everything through. He provided perfect habitats for all the creatures He made.
Ultimately, of course, He was making a beautiful habitat for mankind.
Lord, I stand amazed when I behold Your perfection and beauty. Glory to You, our blessed Creator.
