It is O.K. To Marvel!

The word of God in Psalm 139:14 says,

Psalm 139 14

The Psalmist David cannot help but point to the God of creation when exclaiming about the design of man. And in doing so, he expresses worship for Elohim because of the great mysteries of the human body and the detail of Gods work. The awe and reverence that we should extend to Jehovah should be far more significant because science and medicine have revealed far more than David understood in his day.

Today with the understanding of biology and what has been made known by the study of the human body in detail as tiny as DNA should amaze us. We should abandon all foolish notions of man and release wholly and entirely to God our heart soul and mind. Our worship of Yahweh, the God of David, is as a society at a bare minimum. But, based upon science, medicine and with our understanding of what was “fearfully and wonderfully made” Jehovah should be praised with the depth of our soul because He is glorious and He is worthy of our praise. In our gratitude, we should reach out to Jehovah and say, “Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” just as David did when writing the Psalms.

And what we know from medicine and biology is that,

25% Bones

That means that the other 75% of our bones are spread out through the rest of our bodies, therefore affirming the Word of God when it says that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.”  So when we place our feet on the floor and stand up, it is good to remember that the 25% invested in your feet pays an excellent dividend. After all, the full weight of our body is supported on these bones. Every time you take a step forward and when you begin to run to catch something or someone take a moment to evaluate just how “fearfully and wonderfully” your feet were made. Do you really believe that some evolutionary process caused your feet to capture 25% of your bones or do you embrace the Word of God and trust in His intelligent design?

Then at the end of a long day and feeling overwhelmed about its length and the aching of your feet, take a moment to realize what the Psalmist meant when he wrote, “Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Because if we think about the one “Your works” is referring to and the incredibly intelligent mind that would create what was meant to hit the pavement strong enough to hold up all that we are, and keep us off the ground, it is then that we realize why so much, in the way of bones, was put into our feet.

So the next time you spend the day walking in a park or on a beach, take comfort in the fact that our intelligent designer took His time to carefully create every part of you, including your feet, to lovingly meet your need. And as you walk up a flight of stairs think about how you would design a support system that was strong enough yet so flexible that it could manage those stairs. And what about a steep pathway that leads up to a waterfall in a national park, does it seem credible to you to think that those bones, muscles, and cartilage simply fell into place over time? And if those bones, muscles, and cartilage fell into place over time what occurred to those who were in the in-between stages?

Practically speaking the lie that Satan spoke into the mind of Charles Darwin, a lifetime member of the Church of England an Anglican Church, perverted not just his thoughts, but those of many to follow. As a young man, it was Darwin’s aim to attend Oxford to become a clergyman. Unfortunately, this provided Darwin with a voice in which he could communicate the deception of the Theory of Evolution. What is shocking to many is that, in spite of his lake of faith, his remains were buried in Westminster Abby on April 19, 1882. Many in the Church through the centuries have been drawn away and, failed to honor God and followed a foolish notion such as Charles Darwin.

If you are honest with yourself and others, you are as amazed as David the Psalmist was when writing, “Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” We take so much for granted until we lose it. It is then that we fully understand how wonderfully the Creator designed our bodies. Yes, it is OK to marvel over the medical fact that says that, “Our feet contain 25% of all the bones in our body,” because acknowledgment of the fact that, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made;” is not foolish but wise and will keep your feet on the right path.
