What happened on each of the days of creation?
Here's the answer:
God made something new and special on each of the days of creation.
God created the world from nothing. You can read about it in Genesis chapters 1 and 2. Here’s what God created on each of the seven days of creation:
Day 1: God created the heavens (outer space) and the earth. He also created day and night by separating the light from the dark.
Day 2: God created the sky and the atmosphere that surrounds the earth.
Day 3: God created the dry land. Now the earth was divided between the dry land and the water. On this day He also created plants—big ones and small ones.
Day 4: God created the stars, sun, and moon. The sun gives light during the day and the moon reflects the sun at night.
Day 5: God created all the fish and other water creatures. He also made birds and bugs that fly.
Day 6: God creates all the animals that live on dry land. He also created the first man as a special creation. He told man that he is supposed to care God’s creation. When God’s creation was complete, He announced that it is very good!
Day 7: God rested. By doing this, God set an example to us of the importance of rest.
"The heavens tell about the glory of God. The skies show that his hands created them" (Psalm 19:1).
"God saw everything he had made. And it was very good" (Genesis 1:31a).
