Have you ever heard someone say we can’t know how long God took to create? Earlier this week, we learned that the context of Genesis chapter 1 is obvious that the days were 24 hours. But God didn’t just make this clear in Genesis—He also emphasized it in Exodus.
When God gave the Fourth Commandment, the Sabbath law, He said, “for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that in them is.” God was clear—He created in six days and that is why we work six days and rest one day.
When we try to claim that the days in Genesis were long periods of time, we put ourselves as authorities over God’s Word. Instead, we need to trust God’s Word from the beginning.
