God Establishes the Sky

Is is through perfect wisdom and knowledge that God, the almighty

and perfect Creator, brought everything into existence.

The book of Proverbs explains:

 

The LORD by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding he established the heavens; by his knowledge the deeps broke open, and the clouds drop down the dew. —Prov. 3:19–20 [ESV]

When we look to the heights of the heavens, we look on the incomprehensible expanse of space. From our place on earth, thinking about such a distance as it would take to reach even the closest star is overwhelming. Yet, our Father in Heaven knows every inch of His creation. He has purposefully brought it all together and set the sky in its place. 

The composition of atmosphere on other planets is such that life simply cannot exist. But because of the way God established the heavens, the atmosphere, and the skies above on earth, life bursts forth.

Our heavenly Father has graciously created the heavens—the sky and everything that is in them—for our good. Though the expanse was created on the second day, God would be moved to fill that expanse on subsequent days of creation. And from the skies today, He continues to bring forth rain to water the ground, clouds to offer shade from the sun, the moon and the stars to light the night. 

Our Father in Heaven knows every inch of His creation.

Our Response

 

Our God is powerful. So powerful, in fact, that He established the very expanse that holds the moon, the sun, and the stars. He has ordered the heavens and everything that is in them. Let us meditate on the incredible truth that God our Father, maker of all things, would bring creation together in such a way to promote and sustain life. We can be grateful with every breath we take.

A Prayer for This Week

Dear Heavenly Father, it is a joy and a blessing to meditate on Your Word. You have opened the Scriptures to us for our benefit, and we are thankful. As we look at the days of creation, please continue to bring to our minds Your incredible power and care for us and all things which You have created. Encourage our hearts to be thankful; help us to lift our gaze from the frustrations and temptations of this world and set our eyes on You and Your love for us. Thank You for bringing creation into order so that we can live, thrive, and worship You. Bless us and keep us in Jesus’s name. Amen

Creation Day 2

And then God said:
GOD: Let there be a divide in the waters. And God made the waters separate.
And the waters above the earth He called: “Sky.”
And there was evening, and there was morning of the second day.

– iBIBLE Chapter 1

 

Scripture reference: Genesis 1:6 – 8

God began to bring order to His creation by establishing an expanse to separate the waters above from waters below. God created the sky and set its limit, dividing it from the waters beneath. And so, creation as we now know it began to take shape.
 
It is through perfect wisdom and knowledge that God, the almighty and perfect Creator, brought everything into existence.
