7 Days - The Story of God's Creation - Day 5 - Little Fish Swim, Birds Fly - Family Devotional

Welcome to the Children's Christian Learning Family Devotional! We are on a 7 part journey to learn about 7 Days - The Story of God's Creation

Before God began His creation, there was absolutely nothing. It's hard to imagine

nothing but God created everything we see from nothing! Nothing existed. Nothing at all. Except, of course, God. He has always existed. (Isaiah 57:15).

Let's look at 7 Days The Story of Gods Creation........

Day 5- Little Fish Swim, Birds Fly

‘Then God said, “Let the water be filled with living things. And let birds fly in the air above the earth.” So God created the large sea animals. He created every living thing that moves in the sea. The sea is filled with these living things. Each one produces more of its own kind. God also made every bird that flies. And each bird produces more of its own kind. God saw that this was good. God blessed them and said, “Have many young ones and grow in number. Fill the water of the seas, and let the birds grow in number on the earth.” Evening passed, and morning came. This was the fifth day’ (Genesis 1:20-23).

Little Fish Swim

On the fifth day of Creation, God filled the oceans with many kinds of fish. God made jellyfish, eels, corals and crabs, octopuses and all the other sea creatures too. These creatures did not come about slowly over millions of years, the bible tells us God created all of these on the same day.

Some people say that whales evolved from an animal like a cow. Berkeley Education website says 'The first whales evolved over 50 million years ago, and the ancestor of both these groups was terrestrial (lived on land). Evolutionary scientists have made up an interesting story about how they believe fish became land animals. Why then did this creature decide to go back into the water and grow fins again. Why would it do that?, it doesn't make sense. It's hard to believe that some scientists can present these theories as fact (Isaiah 44:24-25).

Fun Facts about sea creatures

The blue whale can produce the loudest sound of any animal. At 188 decibels, the noise can be detected over 800 kilometres away.

Sharks do not have a single bone in their bodies. Instead they have a skeleton made up of cartilage; the same type of tough, flexible tissue that makes up human ears and noses.

Birds Fly

God wasn’t finished yet. He also created birds and other flying creatures, like bats.

Birds are designed for flight and have feathers. Birds need feathers to fly, but feathers also give the bird much-needed protection against weather, such as cold air and water. Feathers vary in size, shape, colours, and texture. Humans often wear feathers in clothing, recognising how beautiful the colours and patterns are.

Yet many people do not recognise the God who created such beauty for us to enjoy. (Romans 1:20).

Fun Facts about birds

Birds have hollow bones which help them fly.

Hummingbirds can fly backwards.

Finally, remember each kind of creature was created to have babies according to its kind —so bats have baby bats, crabs have baby crabs, and whales have baby whales. This is exactly what we see in the world today.
