 And It Was Good                                God Cannot Give Up

Genesis 1:6-8

God Cannot Give Up
       6 Then God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” 7 God made the expanse, and separated the waters which were below the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so.  8 God called the expanse heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
Day Two continues a triad of separations begun on day one and completed on day three.  These separations are what make it possible to inhabit the earth.  The first separation is the separation of day and night, it gives organization to our time, space to our days.  On day three God separates the water on earth so land can appear and life can happen.  On Day two God separates the waters, the waters above from the waters below so there is vertical space.
The structure of the day continues; “There is evening , there is morning…”  HUMAN BEINGS CANNOT CHANGE THE ORDER OF TIME AND SPACE.  There is evening and there is morning – a day, it is repetitious.  This sequence of order is a guarantee – a promise that God’s covenant with the people will never be broken by God.
The surety of God’s promise is in the words “And evening passed and morning came, marking the second day.”
In a world in which we believe promises are made to be broken, there is evening, there is morning, a day.  A surety that God’s promises will never be broken.  “If you can break my covenant I made with the day and with the night so that one does not follow the other, only then will my covenant …be broken.”  Jeremiah 33:20-21 NLT
Because God’s promises are as solid and permanent as creation, we need not give up.  Because God cannot give up.
Life Point:  God’s promises are as certain as evening and morning.
Memory verse:  Jeremiah 33:20-21
