“Then God said, “Let there be an expanse between the waters, separating water from water.” So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above the expanse. And it was so. God called the expanse “sky.” Evening came and then morning: the second day.”
Genesis 1:6-8 HCSB
It’s a beautiful spring day, and you spread out a quilt on the ground to enjoy a nice picnic. After your tummy is satisfied, you lie down with your hands behind your head and lazily look for animals in the cotton ball clouds. What would our world have been like without the sky as another one of our Father’s canvases? There would be no place for the stars, for starters! How many times have you zipped right past these verses in the creation story, taking them for granted after so much repetition? God, being a God of order, was strategic in what he created at what time in the sequence of things. He was just as thoughtful in his creating you and me, and HE cannot imagine a world without US! Fearfully and wonderfully made, we were placed here at this point in time for a specific mission for bringing glory to Him.
“The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky proclaims the work of His hands.”
Psalms 19:1 HCSB🚦
