Expanse of Space
On the second day God created a “space between the waters” and He called this the “sky”. On day 4 He filled the sky with planets and stars. During that time in between, the sky was a blank canvas. It was an expanse waiting to be filled.
Image you are laying outside. It is night. The sky is filled with billions upon billions of stars. Don’t you just melt under the enormity of it? Your brain can’t even comprehend the vastness you are looking at. It is only able to absorb and understand a small pocket of the heavens.
And yet, these same stars guided ships to faraway lands and back home again. They are the same stars the shepherds looked at as they tended sheep. They keep us company at night with their twinkling light.
God took that empty canvas, the vast expanse, and filled it with something we can hardly comprehend. I imagine Him placing each star “just so”. Same as He did this He is filling you. You are a clean slate just waiting for God to write His story on. Like the stars and vast sky, we can barely comprehend it. Everything has its place. The stars are there to guide us, just as is the moon is there to provide us with the perfect amount of gravity and to make the waves roll to and fro. Everything God does to fill our slate He does, “just so”.
What is He going to write on you?
