On the livescience.com website, I read something pretty amazing that shows wonders: “if you were standing atop a mountain surveying a larger-than-usual patch of the planet, you could perceive bright lights hundreds of miles away.
On a dark night, you could even see a candle flame flickering up to 30 miles which about 48 km away.”
No telescopes or night-vision goggles is needed; the human eye is so profoundly designed with wonders that even long distances can be spanned with clear sight.
This fact is vivid reminder of our amazing Creator, our Lord and God, who designed not only the human eye but all of the details that make up our expansive universe. And, unlike anything else in creation, God has made us in His own image (Gen. 1:26).
“In His image” speaks of something far greater than the ability to see. It speaks of a likeness to God that makes it possible for us to be in relationship with him.
We can affirm David’s declaration, “I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows very well” (Ps. 139:14). Not only have we been given eyes to see, but we have also been made so that, in Christ, one day we will see Him!
Lord, how thy wonders are displayed, whenever I turn my eye, if I survey the ground I trend or gaze upon the sky!
