For those of you who know me I am, how shall I put it, a germophobe and one of the first things I do after a long day is to wash my hands thoroughly and remove all that city grime – for those of you who live in London you know exactly what I mean!! Today was no different but as I was washing my hands a wonderful thought dropped into my mind – what an awe-inspiring creation the human body is!! Grabbing my food from the microwave (and accidentally burning myself in the process) I proceeded to walk upstairs, with every step I couldn’t help but think how marvelously intelligent our God is. I looked down at my hands, from front to back, and thought that only a wonderful God could have designed the hands of a human so intricately. A bundle of cells each with an individual purpose – one side for touching, feeling, holding and the other side as a protective layer for all those blood vessels and nerves!!
While pondering this I couldn’t help to think, how can people not believe in a God and believe this all just chance.
When we look at the intricacies and complexities of the human body that in itself is all the evidence we need. Romans 1:20 says
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse”.
When we examine nature we see all the proof we need to believe in God.
Human beings are masterpieces that were clearly thought out and designed in a marvelous way.
Psalm 139 says:
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body”
As I sit here contemplating how wonderful this all is, it reminds me that because we are fearfully and wonderfully made, God places value on each and everyone of us and the value God places on us is immeasurable.
So if God values each of us how much more must we value, respect and lift up one another, because each person is Gods precious masterpiece. Be empowered, Be encouraged – you are a masterpiece!!
