Genesis 1:4,5

Genesis 1:4,5: And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. And God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.

God as creator of all has the right to “name” things He creates. In the ancient world around the time Genesis was written, oftentimes the action of ‘naming’ something implied ownership. How fitting for a God that creates, to also name His creation thus identifying it as His very own. As a believer, I have to be astounded at the power of God to create, own (this world was not a commissioned piece of artwork) and enjoy His creation.

Furthermore, God specializes in the creation of entities which when joined together become more than the sum of each. Light is one thing and darkness is another, but when combined into a paired sequence, light followed by darkness becomes a whole “day” and ultimately the means by which we measure the dimension of time. Even from the time He had only created two things, light and darkness, God had intended that all His creation work in synchronization with each other to achieve the intended masterpiece. Every plant, every animal, every fish, every fowl, every person is part of that.
