God had a Plan

Last week, we hosted an event for high school seniors to teach them about healthcare careers. During a hands-on activity, students learned about injections and the tools used for them. 

The students were told to draw up a certain amount of fluid. As they looked at their syringe, many noticed an air pocket, or bubble, inside. There was fluid above and fluid below, but right in the middle was a space of air.

Today brings us to the second day of creation. 

“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). 

At this point, we learn there is water below, but also a great water above. Until the days of Noah, who is a few chapters away, all of the water is from below. There is no such thing as rain. 

And then God makes the sky – the air or space above the water.

All of God’s creation comes in perfect order. 

God doesn’t make the birds till day five, He first had to give them a place to fly.

Humans were not created until the sixth day because they needed everything that came before that to survive. 

Take a deep breath in. 

God created the air that fills our lungs which sustains our life! And he made that on the second day, four days before we came into the picture. 

Today, as we do our everyday tasks, take notice of the tiny details of creation God has put into place – and praise Him for it.
