Genesis 1: 20-23 “And God said, let the waters bring forth abundantly moving creatures that has life, and fowl that fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, and the water brought forth abundantly after his kind, and every winged creature after his kind. 22. And God blessed them saying, be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let the fowl multiply on the earth. 23. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.”
As always God performs His creation on day five in an orderly fashion. He had prepared bodies of water as special places for these sea creatures to call home: He created special bodies of water for them to live, thrive, and enjoy life, and reproduce and replenish their kind. And since atmosphere or sky and water now were separated, there was a good place for winged or flying creatures to live and enjoy their environment.
I find it interesting that always after creating living entities, God gave His command to multiply according to its kind and replenish the earth. So reproduction occurs from the tiniest amoeba, through binary fission or its ability to divide into two parts, to human beings. But cats are to seek other cats for the process of reproduction, dogs seek other dogs, etc. And these creatures reproduce through cohabitation, however, many plants reproduce through pollination and germination. But I consider it interesting that after creating every living creature it is told to multiply and replenish the earth.
Heavenly Father, while doing research and learning that You performed all things You created in such an orderly fashion, I’m encouraged to live a more orderly life. And through this experience, my awe and amazement of You has increased as I studied about Your Omnipotence, love, and provision for the least of your creations. I pray and thank You in Jesus. name. Amen.
