"Then God said, 'Let there be light'; and there was light." (NASB)
STRONGS HEBREW/GREEK ORIGINS
"Then God said ('amar: spoke, commanded, uttered), 'Let there be light'; and there was light."
This one is pretty self explanatory. God speaks it and it is done.
As my wife and I were driving before dawn earlier this week, I said to her, "You know what would be crazy? What if God didn't allow the sun to come up today?" We went on to talk for several minutes about how everything from businesses to animal behavior would be affected. I am continually reminded of our frailty and reliance upon God, our Creator. He speaks and it is done. He sets all in order and it is so. All that we, for the most part, take for granted, is all functioning each day under His mighty hand. Today, acknowledge His handiwork and order, for without it chaos would surely reign.
