On the third day of creation God separated the seas from the dry land. This is the day He created the mountains, canyons, plains, etc. It is also teh day that He pushed back the seas into the lower areas of the earth, and set boundaries for the seas.
If the earth were totally smooth today, with no mountains and no valleys, everything would be covered with water almost two miles deep!
Most of the earth is covered with water. We have 350 million cubic feet of water on our planet, but there is no liquid water on any other planet in the solar system.
Water is absolutely essential for life - plant life, animal life, and human life.
God's tremendous, eternal power is seen in the separation of the land from the seas
"Should you not fear me?" declares the LORD.
"Should you not tremble in my presence?
I made the sand a boundary for the sea,
an everlasting barrier it cannot cross.
The waves may roll, but they cannot prevail;
they may roar, but they cannot cross it.
For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
God's widom and love of beauty are seen in the beauty and variety of earth's land masses and seas.
How many are your works, O LORD!
In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.
