In his hand is the life of every creature.
Hummingbirds are fascinating creatures. They weigh less than one ounce; consume one-half of their weight in sugar daily; have a heart rate of more than 1,200 beats per minute; take 250 breaths per minute. Then there’s this fact that I’m struggling to wrap my mind around: their wings beat from fifty to 200 flaps per second.
Don’t let this day pass without considering the wonders of creation.
“Ask the animals, and they will teach you. Ask the birds of the sky, and they will tell you. Speak to the earth, and it will instruct you. Let the fish of the sea speak to you. They all know that the Lord has done this. For the life of every living thing is in his hand” (Job 12:7-10).
There is no lack of wonders;
only a lack of wonder.
