In the account of creation God didn’t create something until He first prepared a place for it. He created the ocean before He made fish to dwell in it. He scattered the land with fruit-bearing plants before creating the animals who would eat it. He established the rhythm of day and night before telling man to rest.
I think there is an important truth here that is often overlooked. God doesn’t bring us into something until He has prepared us for it, and until He has prepared the place for us. That was true of God’s character at the beginning of time and it’s still true today.
