“When we know the truth about God, it fills us with wonder. If we fail to understand his true character, we’ll never be amazed by Him. We’ll never feel small as we stare up at Him. We’ll never worship Him as we ought. We’ll never run to Him for refuge or realize the great love He’s shown in bridging the measureless distance to rescue us.” Dug Down Deep / Joshua Harris
I’m going to give you 5 reasons why God blows my mind… and should or could blow yours
- God is so creative
It never ceases to surprise me how radical and creative God is. And every day scientists are discovering new things, not only about the universe and stars, but about our own planet and even our own bodies.
In fact, scientists discovered 18000 new species last year!
Did you also know that if you stretched out your DNA code it would stretch all the way to the sun and back 4 times! It would stretch out to the moon and back 1500 times!
The human genome, the genetic code in each human cell, contains 23 DNA molecules each containing from 500 thousand to 2.5 million nucleotide pairs. DNA molecules of this size are 1.7 to 8.5 cm long when uncoiled, or about 5 cm on average.
You have about 10 trillion cells in your body, so if you stretched the DNA in all the cells out, end to end, they’d stretch over 744 million miles. The sun is 93,000,000 miles away, so your DNA would reach there and back about 4 times!
And if you laid out all your veins from end to end you’d be dead.
