God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
Genesis chapter one tells how God established time. Have you ever considered how important that is in the creation narrative? It's stated so routinely that it's easy to miss: "There was evening, and there was morning." Before God created the sun, the moon, creatures, plants, or even man, he established time. Why? To give us order.
Think about the most chaotic, difficult time in your life. Close your eyes and picture those days in your mind. Consider how, in the midst of the chaos, "There was evening, and there was morning." There was still the light and the darkness that gave rhythm and order in the midst of the chaos, grounding you, steadying you. No matter what, you knew the sun would rise tomorrow, and it did. God knew you needed that. That is why we must redeem it. Listen to learn more at www.QCAradio.com.
