Thank you God for making the heavens and the earth. Thank you for making seed, yields, trees and fruits. Genesis is always interesting as it is how God decided to tell us the beginning of His story with us: His people.
The word firmament caught my attention today. It seemed to me like that described more than just what I would consider the sky, but space and possibly beyond. In Genesis 1:14, God calls them lights in the heavens. I would take this to mean the stars, planets, moon and sun. How amazing is it, not only how big this is to us, but that He meant for us to use these as signs of the seasons and days in a year! I’m glad we caught on.
Thank you God for creating us in Your image, both male and female. And for giving us dominion over all of the creatures of land and sea.
