My last blog discussed the creation of Day 1 in the book of Genesis.
Let’s take a look at Day 2:
Then God said, “Let there be a space between the waters, to separate the waters of the heavens from the waters of the earth.” And that is what happened. God made this space to separate the waters of the earth from the waters of the heavens. God called the space “sky”. An evening passed and morning came, marking the second day. -Genesis 1:6-8 NLT
That means that the earth was covered in water. From to to bottom, inside and out, left to right, it was covered in water. But because He had us in mind, He knew we’d need air to breathe. He planned ahead what his children would like like and what they’d need to survive.
Sometimes we think that God created the Earth and then decided to create humans. But maybe we should consider it differently. Maybe he created the Earth for us. He didn’t just add us as an afterthought. He actually put together an Earth, a universe, specifically to sustain us.
And that idea reinforces his love for us.
If you haven’t read my previous blog on the creation of Day 1, I encourage you to do so. Day 1 is the start of it all. It’s a new day. I discussed how Mondays can be difficult but that we should view Mondays differently now. We should view it with the creation of Day 1 in the book of Genesis in mind.
Let’s take Day 2, Tuesday if you will, as a day of remembering. Remembering that the air you breath was created on Day 2. The sky, the air, all created for your purpose. It was made for God’s plan for your life. So take a deep breath and hold it in for a few seconds. And praise God for today. Because He created it with you in mind.
He loves you.
