“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made,
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Psalm 139:14, NIV

       There are many in this world that would deny God’s participation in creation and formation. Evolutionists would have you to believe that you are a result of a “Big Bang,” non-living matter giving rise to life as a result of some kind of a gigantic cosmic explosion of matter. (Of course, the Evolutionists have never satisfactorily explained where all that matter came from which caused the “Big-Bang.”) If you accept the theory for your formation: The “Big-Bang” gave rise to single-celled organisms, which gave rise to multi-celled organisms, which gave rise to invertebrates, which gave rise to vertebrates (ape like creatures), which ultimately gave rise to you! You are really nothing more than a cosmic accident!

        But consider this: A normal human being, at middle age, performs the following automatic functions every 24 hours.
Your hearts beats 103,680 times

  • Your blood circulates every 23 seconds and travels 43 million miles
  • You breathe 23,000 times and inhale 438 cubic feet of air
  • You digest 3 1/4 pounds of food and assimilate over 1/2 gallon of fluid
  • You evaporate 2 pounds of water by perspiration
  • You generate 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit of heat and 450 tons of energy
  • You use 750 muscles and your hair grows 1/100 of an inch
  • Your nails grow 1/200 of an inch and you use 7 million brain cells

        All automatic? Who keeps this machine going? Is it by chance? The Psalmist certainly did not think so. In fact, the only reasonable answer is that God, our Divine Creator, designed us as amazing and intricate creations and He sustains our life every moment of every day.

“I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.”
Psalm 3:5, NIV

QUESTION: When was the last time you thanked God for making you such an amazing person? When was the last time you reminded your children that God made them very special?
