Genesis 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2:4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
This is how God finished up the creation and all that He did. He has given you the outline in chapter one! He will now give more details of what He did on that 6th day! He will tell you more of the story.
Of course you know that He wasn’t tired. You know that He didn’t need to rest but is given us a pattern that even unbelievers till follow today, the week, days off, etc.
In chapter 2 He goes into more detail about what He did that last day. Don’t think that it is another creation like the scoffers would challenge you to believe. He simply says, let me tell you about the last day, the day when I made you.
Let me tell you how I gave Adam a wife. Let me tell you how I made that garden for them to live in! Let me show you my wisdom and kindness.
Now when you read the chapter read it with that in mind and you will just worship Him more.
Now if you are questioning how long it took Him to plant a garden or go through all that happened that day then maybe you haven’t read and believed the first chapter. He speaks, it is done and there is time left over.
He is a great God and greatly to be praised!
