Light (by Tim Klink of Prison Discipleship Ministry)

Genesis 1:3 
“And God said, ‘Let there be light: and there was light.’”

The first thing God created was light. Was that so He could see what He was doing? No, it was so we could see what He has done. The next few verses of Genesis 1 gives us a glimpse into all that God has prepared for His crowning creation, man. It’s easy to read through these verses and either not understand them, or read through them casually, and think “That is nice,” and move on. But stop and consider each thing that God created before He created man. Every detail was put in place by the words spoken by the Creator so that when man was created, everything was already prepared for him. God didn’t say after He created man, “Oops, I forgot to create air, or water, or food, or beauty.” Everything was created perfectly for man to be able to glorify his Creator.


Genesis 1:16 
And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night…”


God, in His infinite love and wisdom even provided a time of rest by “dimming” the light so man could sleep. However, the light still remained so His glory and presence could be known. And then as if to say, “You think all of that is something, what do you think of this?”


 Genesis 1:16 
…He made the stars also.”


You cannot look into the night sky without being overwhelmed by the seemingly endless display of those five words. Man, in his “wisdom”, has estimated there are one septillion stars (a one with twenty-four zeros), but the more man’s satellites and telescopes explore the universe the more they find. What an awesome display of God’s infinite power and ability, far beyond anything man could ever imagine. Man, in his “wisdom” explains this marvelous creation away by claiming that “something just exploded,” sending debris everywhere.


Psalm 147:4 
He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names.”


God created each star individually so you can know Him, and He created the light that shows off His creation just for you. Trust Him! He knows exactly what He is doing in your life right now.
