God's Accuracy

God planned everything so carefully and perfectly, everything with a plan. As His highest creation, "we are fearfully and wonderfully made."

God's accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs.

For example, the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days.

Those of the canary in 14 days.

Those of the barnyard hen in 21 days

The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days.

The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.

(Notice, they are all divisible by Seven).

God's wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant. The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other Quadruped is so made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to live on two legs.

For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground easily.

The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first.

A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first.

How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation! God's wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as well as in the number of grains.

Each watermelon has an even number of strips on the rind.

Each orange has an even number of segments.

Each ear of corn has an even number of rows.

Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains.

All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks. The Lord specified Thirtyfold, sixtyfold, and a hundredfold - all even numbers.

Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number.

The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather.

God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day, so that Linneus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed!

Thus the Lord in His wonderful grace can arrange the life that is entrusted to His care in such a way that it will carry out His purposes and plans and will be fragrant with His presence. Only the God-planned life is successful. Only the life given over to the care of the Lord is safe.

Deanna, I completely loved this! I knew that God made the world and all of its inhabitants perfectly but I had never given any thought at all to the precision and planning of it all! Yet another reason to worship how incredibly holy He is!

For the record, I went to church today - since the babies are up for crowds now - and my 8-year old said, "Good Dad, because you never used to go to church!"

Like I told you in that e-mail, the appendectomy did something right with me.

how neat is that! As I like to say it takes more faith to believe in science and random combustion than it takes for faith in God!
