I have always loved roller coasters. As a young teen how I looked forward to the times of going with our youth group to Pacific Ocean Park, and thrilled at riding on its wild roller coaster. So, when I saw this photo, with a snail as on a roller coaster, I was charmed. My heart overflowed with wonder ,joy and praise to the Maker of heaven and earth. What a magnificent Creator we have! GOD has made the most amazing things! It doesn’t matter if they are big or small- the intricate designs and colors are beautiful. How HE must love the tiny details, for everything down to the fuzz on the cucumber plant that curls as a roller coaster, is so perfectly done. No halfway measures with our GOD, the Creator of heaven and earth.
God’s accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs.
…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;
…Those of the mallard in 35 days;
…The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.
***Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!
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, while 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 also revealed in His arrangement of sections, and segments, as well as in the 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.
…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.
All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks, and the Lord specified thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundred fold all even numbers.
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. Linnaeus, 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, simply by the flowers that were open, and those that were closed !
GOD didn’t just put stars in the sky. HE has placed a star in the center of every apple, and at the base of every rose.
With these things in mind, in the light of the evidence of such wisdom and order, doesn’t it just make good sense, to have the designer have free sway to order your days? So I urge you, to give your body to GOD as a living sacrifice. When you think of what HE has done for you, it that really too much to ask? Don’t be conformed by copying the behavior and customs of this world, but let GOD transform you (Greek= Metamorphose-you know, from a caterpillar to a butterfly) by the renewing of your mind with HIS word. Then you will learn, first hand from your very own experience, how HIS ways will really satisfy you. (Romans12:1-2). For only the One Who designed you, down to your gifts and longings, can successfully guide you to fulfillment and joy.
Looking unto JESUS, the Author and Perfecter of my faith.
