Each One is God’s Individual Miracle

“Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, …..So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:26-27

It happens three hundred times a minute, twenty four hours a day, somewhere on planet earth. It seems so common place. Sometimes it happens in the finest hospitals, sometimes in homes and sometimes even in primitive grass huts. It can be taken for granted and looked upon a no big deal.

What I am talking about is the birth of a baby, and there’s nothing routine about it. God does it and there’s nothing routine about anything He does. I have heard it said that a baby is the only psyco-cybernetic electro feedback mechanism capable of mass reproduction by unskilled labor. Now, I know something about physiology, but I also know something about theology and I know that human reproduction is a God thing. The Bible say it is so.

Each baby is custom designed in heaven by a creating God. No two of the billions created are alike, nor will they ever be. The human genetic structure is to individualized and complicated that if ones genetic structure were to be typed out on regular sized stationary, it would create a stack of paper higher that the Washington Monument.

So, when I first held Jack Grant, our newest grandchild, I knew he was one of a kind, custom designed by the Master Designer and truly unique. He has his mom’s hair and his dad’s nose, but above all, he has God’s purpose. He was created for a reason and for a season. God sent him for a mission.

As I held him, he was less than an hour old. He looked up at me as if to ask: “Who are you and what kind of a world have I been brought into?” Good questions, Jack. As I looked at his precious face, I made a covenant with him and with God, to pray for him every day for as long as I live.

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder, consider all the folks Thy hands have made,  then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee, how great Thou art, how great Thou art!
