When we move our hands and touches our noses.

When we move our hands and touches our noses.

What had just happened is really amazing.

When we break ourselves up into small parts, we are but dust.

These lump of dust cannot be use for any good.

But when all these atoms or dust comes together and forms different parts like cells and mitochondria, in turn comes together and form different part like organs and brain, ultimately it ends up with usable parts.
And when the usable parts comes together as a whole, it become one entity; a being.

But all these parts are there to serve a person; that is you. If you do not exist; if there is no intention for you to exist, then it doesn't make sense for those parts to exist in the first place.

A body without you is dead and not good for anything.

But who decide you to be exist? Certainly not you isn't it?

You just happen to use whatever that is given to you.

When you touch your nose, you simply touch it. You did not explode into smithereens.
The body that holds you together did not rebel and are in working order. Every cells are submit to work accordingly to their design.

Psalms 139:13-18 ESV
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you.

Jeremiah 1:5 NLT
“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”

Job 34:14‭-‬15 NKJV
If He should set His heart on it, If He should gather to Himself His Spirit and His breath, All flesh would perish together, And man would return to dust.


~Louis Berkhof

. . . that continued exercise of the divine energy whereby the Creator preserves all His creatures, is operative in all that comes to pass in the world, and directs all things to their appointed end.”

. . . they continue to exists, not in virtue of a merely negative act of God,but in virtue of a positive and continued exercise of divine power. The power of God put forth in upholding all things is just as positive as that exercised in creation . . .

. . . that continuous work of God by which He maintains the things
 which He created, together with the properties and powers which He endowed them . . .

. . . the co-operation of the divine power with all subordinate powers, according to the pre-established laws of their operation,causing them to act and to act precisely as they do.

(1) That the powers of nature do not work by themselves,that is, simply by their own inherent power,but that God is immediately operative in every act of the creature.

(2) That second causes are real, and not to be regarded simply as the operative power of God. It is only on the condition that second causes are real, that we can properly speak of a concurrence or co-operation of the First Cause with secondary causes.

After the activity of the creature is begun, the efficacious will of God must accompany it at every moment, if it is to continue. There is not a single moment that the creature works independently of the will and the power of God. It is in Him that we live and move and have our being, Acts 17:28.
