The Created

My mind is overwhelmed with how much I don’t know. I was thinking about the best and brightest among us and how limited all of the created ones are. Few humans are really experts at anything. Most who are experts have spent a lifetime studying one topic and possibly a few related fields. All an expert is, is someone who has discovered what already is. It is not unusual for someone to be an expert in one field and totally ignorant of other realms of life. I regularly see highly successful and learned people who are clueless about anything mechanical or related to how a home building operates.

I was at Wake Forest University Library once many years ago. At the time it was touted to be one of the largest libraries on the east coast. It was like a six-story building. I remember walking down rows and rows of books written on subjects, I didn’t know there where subjects! Think about the knowledge it takes to become a medical doctor. Each area of medicine and the human body is so complex, most doctors now specialize in one area. The human body is too complex to be an expert in every area.

Ponder this, in every area of life, science, medicine, quantum physics, mathematics, ocean and space exploration, every discovery the human race makes, is something God already knows perfectly! Nothing ever occurred to God. He never has said, “Oh, I didn’t think of that!” Or as Scripture teaches, “Who will be His counselor?”

I have read about our DNA being like computer code. Contained in DNA is everything about all life, designed from the molecular or cell level. I have seen hummingbirds design is far superior to the most sophisticated military helicopter. The human eye is far superior to a camera lens. The brain more amazing than computers.

This past summer I built a simple 12′ X 12′ shed in my back yard. No human I know would look at my shed and say that didn’t used to be there but over great periods of time, amazingly the elements miraculously produced this shed! The truth of the matter is, I could even put all the materials needed in the yard, 2 X 4’s, plywood, bags of concrete, nails, I mean giving the process a real head start. You could wait a bazillion years and the elements would never build my little puny shed! How can we look at the intricate design in human and plant life and the orchestra of the oceans and space and say, “Yeah, it just happened!” Eliminating the Creator from His creation takes massive amounts of spiritual blindness.

“For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.” Romans 1:20

“The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known.” Psalm 19:1-2



About Scott Ranck

Enjoying life with my wife Gayle and our Yorkie, Zoe boy. I've come to believe life begins when through brokenness I can embrace it fully and openly. I've learned the human drama is an adventure and all of us are made of the same stuff. The Lord is the only being who knows me fully and he has an individual educational plan of life long learning for me and I'm enrolled. This blog is all about what I'm learning.
