Genesis 1:1-31, “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. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day. Then God said, ‘Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.’ Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day. Then God said, ‘Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear’; and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good. Then God said, ‘Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth’; and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. So the evening and the morning were the third day. Then God said, ‘Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth’; and it was so. Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. So the evening and the morning were the fourth day. Then God said, ‘Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.’ So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.’ So the evening and the morning were the fifth day. Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’ So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’ And God said, ‘See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food’; and it was so. Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.“
Based on my recent visit to the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY, I was inspired to write this post. If you have a chance to check out this place, I encourage you to do so. I do not have anything to gain from talking about this place nor am I receiving any kickbacks. I only ask that you allow yourself to have your eyes be opened to the story of Creation.
In the beginning. This means that God existed before time. This is tough to comprehend. God was before anything was. Everything in the world did not just magically show up. An explosion didn’t happen and poof, everything started. Everything requires a God. A God who is bigger than everything, more intelligent than everything, and perfect in every way. That is God. He is everywhere and all-knowing.
God. Not some guy. Not some made up god made of gold or silver. Not some mysterious event to lead to other events. God. God the Father meticulously created. Created what? Everything. The heavens and the earth. God created the world and filled in. God simply spoke and things were. Light happened through the voice of God.
The whole story of the Creation for the first 6 days are in the first chapter of Genesis. I have attached the whole chapter to read. The summation: God made everything that has existed, exists, and will exist. God made it good, saw it was good and was happy. Man was God’s greatest accomplishment and though we are sinful, Jesus came, died and made us perfect again with His bloodshed. Each day, God made so much. Each day, God is there, involved in the making process. He did not delegate His work to someone else. He made the world and everything in it. Glory to God for all His creation. Hallowed is His name forever.
My God, My Creator,
You created all things in 6 days. You spoke and things were made. You gave instructions and things followed them. Everything You make shows that power and majesty that You possess. I pray that all of us learn more about the creation and learn to appreciate all that You made. You showed us how much You care in all that You made. Let us show You that we are Your greatest creation. Humans are appreciative of You. Thank You God. Thank You God. Thank You God. You are the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. You are all we need.
In Your name we pray,
