And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and thefruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

And the evening and the morning were the third day 1:11-13

We note that what God created were mature-looking trees bearing fruit and herbs and grasses bearing seeds. At the end of this day the earth would look mature. What normally takes weeks, months, years, centuries (in the case of some trees) happened at God’s command. We think of the incident of Jesus turning water into wine. Nature, assisted by man, does that yearly, but it takes at least a year from the grape flower buds forming, opening, setting and the young grapes growing to maturity, to be harvested, crushed, fermented, bottled, matured to give wonderfully tasting wine! As God’s son, Jesus did that in an instant. We cannot limit God’s power – it is totally unlimited.
