The beautiful artistry of God was not done randomly nor was it done as an end to itself. Day four and five of creation revealed God’s purpose and preparation. He created the sun, moon and stars to be lights, to be placeholders and to mark important events like the seasons. He then filled the earth with animals like fish in the sea and birds in the air, each population to be a part of the workings of his plan. The joy of day six
It is amazing How God not only works his plan but delights in putting it together. He does that in our lives as well. He knows what is planned for us and has since the beginning. He wants us to be prepared for the life he has set out for us. He intends to spend an eternity with us and wants us to be ready to receive all that is in store. He cares for our lives as much as he cared for the creation. That is pretty amazing!
God Bless You
Then God said, “Let lights appear in the sky to separate the day from the night. Let them be signs to mark the seasons, days, and years. 15 Let these lights in the sky shine down on the earth.” And that is what happened. 16 God made two great lights—the larger one to govern the day, and the smaller one to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set these lights in the sky to light the earth, 18 to govern the day and night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.
19 And evening passed and morning came, marking the fourth day.
Then God said, “Let the waters swarm with fish and other life. Let the skies be filled with birds of every kind.” 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that scurries and swarms in the water, and every sort of bird—each producing offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 Then God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply. Let the fish fill the seas, and let the birds multiply on the earth.”
23 And evening passed and morning came, marking the fifth day.
