“Since his days are determined, and the number of his months is with you, and you have appointed his limits that he cannot pass,…” Job 14:5

Every man and woman has been born and all will die. 

It is God who knits a person together in their mother’s womb.

It is God who determines when their time on this earth is complete. 

His hand directs cells to grow into His image.

His hand tells them to send us back to dust.

Our Lord knows us at a level beyond our self-knowledge.  He knows our inner-workings.  He knows our molecules.  He knows the building blocks of our very form.  He knows our DNA.  He knows me personally not because we were never introduced and He is good with names.  He knows my face because He instructed my DNA to grow in its shape with the nose, mouth, and eyes that I have.

The God of universe is the God of my DNA.

The expanse of His presence is beyond measure.  The span of His arms, from finger tip to finger tip, reaches beyond the expanse of the stars.  Yet, His hand retains the delicacy to touch my DNA.  He has placed every strand of my DNA in the precise order that He wanted.  When He looks upon, there are no mysteries for the One who can see my very composition.

He knows my muscles that are being developed.

He knows my bone mass that is being lost.

He knows my thoughts and which cells contain them.

He knows the hairs on my head not by counting but by directing them to die.

Every breath I take comes from His grace of cells absorbing oxygen.

He raises me to my peak and eases me in my decline.

My defects bow to the same sovereign will as all that is perfect.

God inhabits the infinite and in the infinitesimal. 

No hiding place can remove us from His presence.

No conundrum of the human mind can outwit the One who formed our brain.

We can rest assured that the One who was so particular about our beginning and who has set our end, will be very involved with everything in the middle.

PRAYER: Lord, I humbly stand before you in awe.  It seems so foolish the attempts that I have made to live without recognizing You.  Your hand is evident all around me.  You hand is evident in me.  You are great and greatly to be praise.  I pray this in the precious name of your Son, Jesus Christ.   Amen.
