We can spend a lifetime amazed by the glory of the creation. In consideration of the vast amount of power, the intricate in design, and the probability of mathematics, the handiwork of God is well above our understanding.
Our sun produces over 61 megawatts/m2 of explosions, constantly recurring; a continuous explosion that emits energy in every direction. Our earth, approximately 92,960,000 miles away, draws life-sustaining energy from those explosions.
Comparatively, the atomic bomb that fell on Hiroshima in Japan produced 3,000 megawatts in power from just a hand full of fuel. Although it was just a momentary explosion, it changed history.
The temperature of the sun at its core is 27 million degrees, but only about 4-10 thousand degrees on its surface. Yet, that is not the only “hot” power we can observe.
The temperature of the air around a bolt of lightning is about 54,000° Fahrenheit (30,000° Celsius), which is six times hotter than the surface of the sun.
Yet the intricacy of the creation is also to be admired. From the circulation and nervous system to a butterfly, the balance of life created by the properties of water, to the way the vegetation restores our oxygen level in our atmosphere, we are left to wonder at it all.
The probability alone in creation testifies to the glory of God. Look into a mirror. Think of the days in eternity past before the world existed. From that moment, the probability of you being around to look into a mirror today is greater than the chance of you winning the lottery in every state three times and being struck 200 times with electricity on your way to pick up the winnings.
“The LORD by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding he established the heavens; by his knowledge the deeps broke open, and the clouds drop down the dew.” Proverbs 3:19-20.
