It only takes one time.
One time — one infection, one invasion, one intruder — but your immune system remembers. Remembers so vividly that next time the same assault comes, you suffer dramatically less or not at all.
Incredible isn’t it?
Millions of cells make up these human bodies we walk this earth shrouded in — each cell playing a pivotal, crucial role in our everyday survival. No task too small as every bodily function is needed to truly thrive. From the incredible kidneys regulating everything from fluid status to blood pressure to the amount of a microscopic electrolyte to the lungs whose design as a negative pressure system eases our work of breathing enough to make it effortless…and let’s not even start on the incredible heart and liver — each and every organ, every tissue, every cell proclaims it:
He’s in the details.
Our Creator God? He’s not one to overlook anything.
Besides the larger organs, think about the tiny hairs on our skin. Each one placed meticulously for a reason — our protection against the environment He knew we’d be exposed to — nothing was left undone, nothing unaccounted for.
If our Savior cared so deeply about forming our earthly bodies to serve us so well — how much more does He care about us as whole people, His image bearers?
He’s always and forever into the details — and that means the details of His beloved children’s lives. No matter how seemingly small, how trivial it may seem to others, if it matters to you — He cares.
God’s love is in the details, the uniqueness, the beauty of His creation.
Nature shouts it.
The human body proves it.
Our hearts need to believe it.
He’s in the details.
And He couldn’t be more into yours.
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31
“God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them…
God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.”
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
