           Did you know, the Earth spins on its axis at a rate of approximately 1000 miles per hour. It rotates around the sun at a rate of 67,000 miles per hour. The Sun rotates around the center of the Milky Way at a rate of 882,000 miles per hour. The universe is literally spinning all around us, at every moment of every day. However, it is because of gravity that we are kept firm on this planet. Without this gravity, we would be flying off in space. Which the earth would be considered inhabitable or unlivable if this was the case. The odds of this being a sequence of chance is suggested to be 1 to the power of 40 (A 1 with 40 0’s after it). That is a whole lot of 0's, and it a very slim chance that we could survive. 

           Or take our Sun for example. It is only 1/2100th the size of Stepheson 2-18, the biggest known star. It is our little star that is able to sustain life. The Stepheson star would be far too hot for us to survive. This is only one of the many ways our earth is perfectly made for humanity.  Can you imagine the planning and intricate creation ordering that it took to make this so?

           Paul tells us that “he is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:17, ESV). Job excitedly states, “He (God) stretches out the north over the void and hangs the earth on nothing. He binds up the waters in his thick clouds, and the cloud is not split open under them. He covers the face of the full moon and spreads over it his cloud. He has inscribed a circle on the face of the waters at the boundary between light and darkness…” (Job 26: 7-10, ESV). His hand is upon the earth, since its formation and creation by his divine fiat or spoken word. This is the same God that continually tells us to wait on him, call on his name, and to follow his ways. Why should we worry about tomorrow,  for he has planned everything out perfectly in his own way?
