A friend sent this to me this morning and I thought I'd share.

How Great is our God!!! Our Creator and Redeemer . . . and do we THINK about it ???

God's accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs.. . . . .

For example: -the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days;

-those of the canary in 14 days;

-those of the barnyard hen in 21 days;

-The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days;

-those of the mallard in 35 days;

-The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.

(Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!)

God's wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant.

The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction.

No other quadruped is so made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body,

too large to live on two legs. For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground easily.

The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first. A cow rises from the ground

with its two hind legs first. How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation!

God's wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as well as in the number of grains.

-Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind.

-Each orange has an even number of segments.

-Each ear of corn has an even number of rows.

-Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains.

-Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row

decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number.

-The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather.

-All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks, and the Lord specified thirty fold, sixty fold,

and a hundred fold all even numbers.

God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day. Linnaeus, the great botanist,

once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could

tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed!

The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if you will only entrust Him with

your life. If you try to regulate your own life, it will only be a mess and a failure. Only the One Who made the brain and

the heart can successfully guide them to a profitable end.

I love numbers too! Wonderful posting Vernalee! (and I love your name too!)

That said, this: "The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if you will only entrust Him with your life. If you try to regulate your own life, it will only be a mess and a failure. Only the One Who made the brain and the heart can successfully guide them to a profitable end." is the real truth to know ever so completely!

For us humans it is such a huge challenge to entrust our life to anyone else! Yet, to not entrust our life to Jehovah really and truly does result in quite a mess and ultimate failure. I keep working on this myself and so often feel I fall far short from the goal and yet Jehovah doesn't give up on me and he's always alerting me to ways to build that trust in him! :)
