I praise you, Lord God, for your wonderful power and wisdom shown in Creation. You have made the human body so complicated that statically it shouldn’t work!
Starting with individual cells which are like intricate little cities with systems of communication, transportation and processing of energy. Then there are the nervous, blood, breathing and digestive systems, all managed by delicate electric and chemical signals–simply amazing.
Then, on top of the astounding engineering of the body, you made this complex creature able to reproduce–to be able to make from two cells a completely new copy of the parents. What a wonder that is, to have all the information and pattern included in the DNA of each cell, guiding in the development of every part of the body. As the optic nerve grows both from the eye and from the brain, the thousands of fibers join exactly correctly, making vision possible.
You are a marvel, Lord, and there are many more parts of the creation which show this. Yesterday I read that a trip at the speed of light to the nearest galaxy would take 2,000,000 years! And you, Lord, Jesus, easily fill the whole universe! As Ephesians 4:10 says about you, “He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.”
I praise you for your great and deep wisdom and power to create and sustain all this. To you be honor and glory for your breathing the stars, hanging the earth on nothing, bringing the dawn each day and sustaining all til the end of the age.
Truly, knowing you in many of the beautiful and intricate facets of your character is enough for joy. You know the way, you have a plan, you run with us through each day in pleasure and pain, what is easy and hard, and will guide us on into eternity.
I praise you for these truths, Lord Jesus. Help us to keep them in mind as you guide us today in joining you in our interactions and conversations that you may be honored in all.
