God’s Stellar Playlist

Re: Verse reading–Genesis 1:14-25; 2:1-3 (day two)  

God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. 1:16-18

This was Moses’ retelling of the creation event. Read now, God’s words to Job regarding the formation of the world:                                                                                                         “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding,
Who set its measurements? Since you know.
Or who stretched the line on it?
“On what were its bases sunk?
Or who laid its cornerstone,
When the morning stars sang together
And all the sons of God shouted for joy? Job 38:4-7

God’s direct words for Job notwithstanding, we catch a glimpse of God in his studio as he made the world. He made the stars to sing and the angels shout for joy. Quite a picture, isn’t it. Is that you? Do you put your playlist on as you work to help you focus or to give yourself a boost? You are definitely in good company. So much of what we do each day is creative or re-creative. We are making decisions, designing, implementing. God’s choice for music as an accompaniment to industry is not only enjoyable, it is productive. Go ahead, turn the volume up…and don’t forget to sing along!
