Work Week: God’s Design for One Day at a Time

Let There Be…Order

Genesis 1:6-8

“And 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 that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so.And God called the expanse Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.” Genesis 1:6-8

Main Idea:  God’s work gives order to my work

“The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” Proverbs 16:9

God’s creation has order

  • He commands it →He completes it →He names it →He assigns it value
  • God is preparing for what comes next

God works His order through our "chaos"

  • Story of Joseph (Genesis 37-50)
  • During the chaos
  • Beyond the chaos

God's story has order

  • From creating light (Genesis 1) to becoming the Light (John 1)
  • Four gardens - Eden (Genesis 2), Gethsemane (Matthew 26), Garden Tomb (John 19), Paradise (Revelation 21)

“Or who shut in the sea with doors when it burst out from the womb, when I made clouds its garment and thick darkness its swaddling band, and prescribed limits for it and set bars and doors, and said, ‘Thus far shall you come, and no farther, and here shall your proud waves be stayed’?”  Job 38:8-11

 “He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved. You covered it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains. At your rebuke they fled; at the sound of your thunder they took to flight. The mountains rose, the valleys sank down to the place that you appointed for them. You set a boundary that they may not pass, so that they might not again cover the earth.” Psalm 104:5-9

“The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” Proverbs 16:9
