God's Accuracy

The following is an email that I recieved. I enjoyed it and thought you might also.

How lovely to think about the way our Creator 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 fo 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 the 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 is can rise from the ground easily.

The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs

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 stripes 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.
~

~
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.
~

~
All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks. The Lord specified thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundred fold - all even numbers.

God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day, so that Linneus, the great botanist, once said the 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.

Truly amazing. God is the master engineer, creator, mechanic, designer, etc etc. Nothing is random in this world, nothing. Did He not say, even the hairs on our heads are numbered? Your blog is looking so lovely and this post just enhances that....

Dear Lady Farmer,

It's so true! Just thinking about how the earth has the perfect atmosphere for life, and how the earth is made of the same minerals that our bodies are made of, and how we can get those through the plants that He made to grow. It's so truly astounding; how could anyone deny the existence of a Creator?


Love,

Marqueta
