In Psalm 95:6 David opens his heart and declares “Come let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord God our Maker, for He is our God…” David had the revelation that we were created, intricately crafted by the masters hand.

Three thousand years have now past and scientists are continually amazed at the complexity in the design of our bodies.

When you consider our brain consists of approximately 12 billion cells, with 120 trillion interconnections allowing us to see and do amazing things.

And when you also consider the human eye with its 10 million photoreceptor cells in the retina that are so complex, it would take a Cray supercomputer a minimum of 100 years to simulate what takes place in the eye several times per second. Not to mention the 20 feet of blood vessels intricately woven into every square inch of skin and the 72 feet of nerve fiber in each square inch of our hands.

The list of masterful design goes on and on.

The blueprints that map and organize all this complexity is encoded within one microscopic strand of DNA. Picture this. If we were to take one set of these blueprints from every person on earth and put them into a container, the container would be the size of and asprin tablet!

Now I must echo David and say “Come let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord God our Maker, for He is our God…”
