Genesis 1:14-19 : Fourth Day of Creation



14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

The seven days of creation stand for steps in our spiritual progress. In Genesis 1:14-18, the creation of the sun, moon and stars represent the providing of truth. In the 7-week study series, "Seven Practices of Peace", this passage from Genesis shows that it is time to do a check on our spiritual progress. Essentially we need to look up to God and make sure we are being led by Him. Many people "see the light"; but then end up just trading one bad habit for another. This week, make sure your new habit you've taken on is one that is leading you to God.
