Family Time Devotions: Day 4Posted: September 12, 2015
Genesis 1:14-19 (NIrV)
God said, “Let there be lights in the huge space of the sky. Let them separate the day from the night. Let them serve as signs to mark off the seasons and the days and the years. Let them serve as lights in the huge space of the sky to give light on the earth.” And that’s exactly what happened.
God made two great lights. He made the larger light to rule over the day. He made the smaller light to rule over the night. He also made the stars.
God put the lights in the huge space of the sky to give light on the earth. He put them there to rule over the day and the night. He put them there to separate light from darkness.
God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning. It was day four.
On the day four, God add the lights in the sky (stars), the smaller light to rule the night (moon) and the larger light to rule the day (sun). These served a purpose for His creation, as they helped people for thousands of years keep track of days, seasons, and years. God was done and He said, “It was good.”
