This verse helps remind us of the details in Gods master plan for us. Had God not said “Let there be light,” before saying “let us make man in our image,” we would not have been able to survive. His plan was perfect in every way and each detail. Were it not for God, Moses could have recorded this history in any order, but it is in fact the right order.
Genesis 1:3 King James Version (KJV)
3 “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”
