Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

untitledI will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalm 139:14

God’s creation manifests intelligent and intricately designed organisms – from the very simple one-celled creatures to the “fearfully and wonderfully made” humans. One of the best ways to see this majestic design is to study science. No matter what branch you study – Botany, Zoology or Biology – you will see the creative genius of our Great Creator. In all the science classes I teach I attempt to emphasize that creative genius no matter what chapter or organism we are studying. It is always exciting when the opportunity arises to show how the Bible is always correct on any subject matter. We have all heard the saying – “the Bible is not a science book, but it is always right on science” – (you may insert any subject into that statement that fits your circumstances) – so I take every opportunity to show that. We recently finished the chapter on fish in Biology, and I had been reading through Corinthians. We learned how the muscles of fish are uniquely designed so that they can move their body “wave-fashion” as they swim. I Corinthians 15:39 proves that fact. “All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.” The flesh of fish is constructed in layers with each layer having its own nerve to move it separately as they move their bodies back and forth as they swim. One simple illustration that should make us say, “Praise the Lord” for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
