Ma’aseh Bereshit on a daily basis

Many Rabbis (e.g. Rabbi Chaim of Volozhin) state that Ma’aseh Bereshit (Creation) is taking place on a daily basis. Every morning when the sun rises and a new day is starting, we are witnessing a further Creation.
When G-d created the entire universe and everything existing, He did so from nothing. There was no primordial matter but G-d created all existence with His thoughts. He didn’t need any material or matter. The Creation on a daily basis, however, doesn’t take place from nothing but G-d is just renewing His existing world.
