Genesis 1:1 says, In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
When night time comes it gets dark outside, but when morning comes it is light outside. When God created the light, he also knew that he would be creating man in his image and knew that man would need light to see what we are doing. There are many scriptures in the Bible that refer to light. Jesus is God manifested in the flesh, and he is the light of the world. He came, and he died and rose again so that we can know him, but also see and know that he is working in our life every day.
Let’s take a moment to think about God creating man. Instead of speaking man into existence he got down into the dirt (dirt in a dark color and it is dirty) and created mankind in his image. The moment God breathed life into man, the man became a living soul.
Just recently scientists have discovered that at the time of conception there is a bright light that sparks. Does this surprise us? It should not surprise us because The very same God that spoke light into existence and got down on his hands and knees to create man is the very same God that creates human life today.
While doing some research, I found something interesting that takes place when a woman conceives a child. An excerpt from the americanpregnancy.org says that the pregnancy glow is one of the physiological changes many women look forward to while they are pregnant. The pregnancy glow is one of the skin changes that is caused by the changes and increase of hormones during pregnancy.
With the pregnancy glow that a woman goes through is just another proof that the very same God who spoke the light into existence and created man is still in the business of creating lives and changing lives. After all one of the definitions for light is the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible.
