Genesis 1 & 2 is the amazing account of God’s creating the world. God had only to speak and the world and all that it contains came into existence. Notice in the account the repeated words,
“And God said”, “and it was so” and “And God called”…
God spoke, it happened, and He named creation.
Day 1 – Created Light was called Day, darkness called Night
Day 2 – Created the Firmament and called it Heaven, the evening and the morning
Day 3 – Created Dry Land calling waters Seas and the dry land Earth
(God saw that it was Good!)
Day 4 – Created Grass, Herbs, Fruits reproducing after their own kind.
– Created Two Great Lights – Greater Light, Sun to rule the day and
the lesser light to rule the night and the stars also.
(God saw that is was Good!)
Day 5 – Created fish and sea creatures and fowl reproducing after their own kind.
(God saw it was Good!)
AND GOD BLESSED THEM, Saying, “BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY”
Day 6 – Created living creatures, cattle, and creeping things, beasts after its kind.
(God saw that it was Good!)
– Created male and female in His own image and named them Adam and Eve.
AND GOD BLESSED THEM, saying, “BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY, AND
RELISH THE EARTH AND SUBDUE IT, AND HAVE DOMINION OVER IT.”
(And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was Very Good.)
Day 7 – God ended His work and rested.
AND GOD BLESSED THE SEVENTH DAY AND SANCTIFIED IT!
How can we not Praise Him for the adept Creator He is! How Great IS our God!
“Who is like unto Thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like Thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” Exodus 15:11
Dear Heaven Father, I am awe-struck at the beauty and complexity of your wondrous creation. We are a blessed people to know You as our God…a Holy, merciful, personal God. Truly there is none like YOU! How Great YOU ARE! Let everything that hath breath, praise the LORD. Praise the Lord!,
In Jesus name and for His sake, Amen.
My dear friend, Marge, sent me this article which I thought was so perfect for the study I was doing on Creation this week. I find it amazing how God speaks to us, not only through His Word, but gives us fellow Christians that undergird and encourage us.
How Great is our God!!! Our Creator and Redeemer . . . and do we THINK about it ??? God’s accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs.. . . . .For example: the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days; those of the canary in 14 days; -those of the barnyard hen in 21 days; The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days; those of the mallard in 35 days; the eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days. (Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!)
God’s wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant. The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to live on two legs. For this reason He gave it four fulcrum so that it can rise from the ground easily.
The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first. A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first.
How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation! God’s wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as well as in the number of grains.
-Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind.
-Each orange has an even number of segments.
-Each ear of corn has an even number of rows.
-Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains.
-Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number.
-The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather.
-All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks, and the Lord specified thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundred fold all even numbers.
God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day. Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed!
The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if you will only entrust Him with your life. If you try to regulate your own life, it will only be a mess and a failure. Only the One Who made the brain and the heart can successfully guide them to a profitable end.
