What do you do when you look into a mirror?

Be Still . . .
Devotionals for Daily Living©

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
(Psalms 139:13-14 (NIV))

Blessed is the person who knows the power and majesty of his or her Creator, for they know that they are no accident. They know that, contrary to what society would have you believe, they are not evolved from apes, but are created to be in the image of God.

So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
(Genesis 1:27 (NIV))

Have you ever truly studied the human body?

It is no chance accident. We were fearfully and wonderfully made. The intricacies and complexities of life, especially the human body, are so interwoven that it is obvious that there was a design. It is obvious that there was a Creator. When was the last time that you saw anything, if left to its own random chance, grow into something more than it already is? Think about that. Everything deteriorates. There is nothing that does not deteriorate. The basic principle of evolution is that things randomly improve and adapt. If left to the natural order of this sinful world, everything gets dirty, gets old, falls apart and eventually rots. Where is the improvement there?

We are made up of millions of cells. The basic building blocks of each cell are so intricate that the possibilities of them coming together and then aligning in the required order are so staggering that for all practical purposes they would not come into existence in that combination. They had to be designed!

The next time that you look into a mirror, stop and think of the words from Psalms 139:13-14. We must never forget that our existence is no accident. We were created by a loving God and Father. Every single time we look into the mirror we must praise God for what He has done.
