Today I am going to share with you one of my devotions from this week. It is all I can think about since I read it. The title is "Magnificent."
The word magnificent is a perfect word to describe all of Creation! Have you ever just stopped and thought about how the different parts of Creation all work? Look at the fly. This pesky little creature is so annoying. How many times have you ever so carefully tried to smack one. They almost always dodge the swatter. Why is that? Well, one reason is probably that their eyes...those two little beady eyes...are made up of hundreds of little beady eyes! They can see you no matter the direction from which you come at them!
Think about our bodies...all the systems within. How 'magnificent' that God would create our bodies to be so intricate! God has made all the systems in our body to work together in a specific way. Some people don't like chiropractors. However, if you think about the intricacy with which God has made our bodies, it makes sense that if our skeletal system is out of alignment then the rest of the systems in our body will also be a little out of whack.
Have you ever wondered how the miles of veins, nerves and arteries in our body weave in and out in such a way that each one knows where it's going and how it carries our blood throughout our body?
Think about this...God created man in His image from the dust of the Earth. We talked about the various systems of the human body...yet, man was created from dust! There were no systems in Adam's prototype. Then God blew His own breath into this dust formed man. And
Our Creator is mighty, wonderful, miraculous, MAGNIFICENT!! My heart is in awe as I look at the various parts of Creation.
Genesis 2:7 NLT
"And the God formed man the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being."
Job 38:4-7 NLT
"4 Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much. 5 Who determined its dimensions and stretched out the surveying line? 6 What supports its foundations,and who laid its cornerstone 7 as the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?"
Have a blessed day...and take some time to be wowed by God's Creation!!
