“For you created my inmost being; I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body." Psalm 139:12-16 (NIV)
Did you ever notice how DNA has the look of something that was knitted? As noted above it is made up of two chains that are linked and twisted around one another… reminds you a bit of knitting too, doesn’t it? I find it interesting that the words written through God’s inspiration by the psalmist David were recorded almost 3,000 years ago. God gave us insight then of how our DNA worked. He knew our knowledge at that time could not comprehend DNA so He gave us an illustration, not unlike the other word pictures He has given us in other psalms, proverbs and in Jesus’ parables. The scientists are beginning to understand what God had so simply explained to us all those years ago.
I ask myself, what will I do with these millions of nucleotides (I really like that word)… what will I do with what God has created in me with them? I think that is going to be my next resolution that I am sharing with you, to put to use these millions of nucleotides to the Lord’s glory. Together we can see how that will work throughout this yearIn the meantime, I encourage you to visit these wonderful knitters on Etsy. As you wear a knitted piece, keep in mind how fearfully and wonderfully you have been made!
