Genesis 1:6,7

Genesis 1:6,7: Then God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” And God made the expanse, and separated the waters which were below the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so.

Here is something that distinguishes God from man. God said, “Let there be…”, then “God made...”, and finally “and it was so.” And that process can be applied to anything that God chooses to do. He says it, does it, and it’s so. His results are guaranteed, with never a failure. That’s the God that we can relate to.

But His approach is also intended as a model for us, subject to things that are within our control. In the New Testament, Matthew 5:37 says, “But let your statement be, ‘Yes, yes’ or ‘No, no;’ and anything beyond these is of evil.” We are to deliver what we say we will and not doing so is “of evil”. God’s intention for us is to ‘keep our word’.
