There is an interesting progression in the first four days of creation.
On the first day, time and space in light were precisely aligned in the speed of molecular motion.
On the second day, there was a very broad, loose alignment of time and space. The laws of science controlling the evaporation and condensation of water have some precision to them, but the motion of a rain cloud across 500 miles is the product of dozens of competing forces. It is a much looser alignment of time and space than in light.
On the third day, God created seeds with the life of God in them. Those seeds drop from a tree in a fairly random manner over the course of a few days. They might drop because of a bird’s action, or a storm, or simply the aging, rotting of the stem holding them to the plant.
Then, lying on the ground where they landed randomly, they might sprout soon, or late, or be eaten by a mouse or a bird.
Yet, within that apparent randomness, there are some points of precision in the alignment of time and space. That seed falling in October can remain alive yet inert for months until there is heat and moisture.
That combination of stimuli, awakens a mighty force that has been present all along. Germination takes place and suddenly the randomness is over. The sequence of cell division and multiplication takes place along incredibly precise and delineated lines.
So God perpetuates the life of vegetation across millennia with a stunning blend of leaving the seeds to the mercy of myriad factors, while at the same time, subjecting them to a ruthless control.
