“Then God said, “Let the earth produce every sort of animal, each producing offspring of the same kind—livestock, small animals that scurry along the ground, and wild animals.” And that is what happened. God made all sorts of wild animals, livestock, and small animals, each able to produce offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good.” Genesis 1:24-25
This scripture is leading up to the climax of creation; the creation of man. We see that God created the animals before man. He created the animals just as He did with everything, fully grown. They did not evolve from water in a pond, but God created them. Just as He created everything on the earth and all the universe. To me, at times, it is hard to understand these verses in Genesis. When I first started writing on Genesis, I did not know where God was going to lead me. As I prayed and studied, God continues to open my mind to more of an understanding of these scriptures. If we cannot understand these scriptures, how can we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. How can we trust a God with our life if we don’t accept all the scriptures? “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” (Proverbs 3:5-6) This is my scripture for 2019. How can I trust if I have doubts that God made the animals. That He made all the universe and that He rules over all that He made. God could have made everything instantly, but He chose to make everything in six days. As God always does, He had a plan in making everything in six days. This was to show us how we are to live our lives here on earth. We work six days and then we rest on the seventh. I accept all the scripture, because I know that God is real and He loves me. I have seen God’s work in my life more than I could tell. We move from here to see the greatest of all creation, man.
