The embodiment of God's perfect character is revealed in His creation. God was very careful in creating—everything was well-thought out. There was an order—He didn’t fill before forming ..."The earth was without form, and void ..." (Genesis 1:2) There was a rhythm to life, day and night, six days work, and one day rest (Genesis 1:31, and Genesis 2:2). God made a perfect world for the needs of His inhabitants.
"... Darkness was on the face of the deep ..." (Genesis 1:2b). God didn't want His inhabitants to wander around in darkness, so God created light (Genesis 1:3). Can you begin to imagine if we lived life in the dark! God gives light so we can see all He has made and give Him glory. We can see how amazing God is through all the various things He has created.
God loves variety! He didn’t just want one of everything. He made plants and trees that were seed bearing. He made not just one bird, but all kinds of birds, and the same with the rest of the animals. He made humans: male and female, and commanded them to be fruitful and multiply (Genesis 1:20-30).
God has opened my eyes to see His glory: "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork." (Psalm 19:1). He did all that, and then enables me to see His hand in making it all so that I can praise Him as the wonderful Creator. But not just that, He gives light so I can see His glory in salvation as well as in creation through His Son, my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:3-5). Such an Amazing God ... a picture perfect!
