“By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.” (Hebrews 11:3 ESV)

“All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.” (John 1:3 ESV)

This describes the seven days of creation: in the beginning – God started creation – 

the First day – light was created.
The second day – the sky was created.
The third day – dry land, seas, plants and trees were created.
The fourth day – the Sun, Moon and stars were created.
The fifth day – creatures that live in the sea and creatures that fly were created
The sixth day – animals that live on the land and finally humans, made in the image of God were created.
By day seven – God finished his work of creation and rested, making the seventh day a special holy day.

So that explains the order in which God created things. But it doesn’t explain why He created some of the things He created. Take for example snails and slugs. I don’t care for either. They are slimy but melt under a layer of salt. Or bugs! They are annoying. And snakes. What about the platypus? It looks like it’s made out of spare parts. 

I know they are all a part of the grand scheme of things.  But I could do without most of them. But there are some wonderful things too. Like cats and dogs. Horses! And of course….me! Just kidding. But God did a great job considering He did it all in just 6 days. What a wonderful God we serve. He loves us so much He sends the sunrise in the morning and sunset in the evening. A cool breeze on a hot day and a gentle rain. 

Do you love God? He loves you. He said to get ready, He is opening the windows in heaven to pour out blessings on His children. 

Have a wonderful day everyone and get ready for the blessings that are coming.
