fearfully and wonderfully made.

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” ~Psalm 139:14
The whole of Psalm 139 is a miracle that continues everyday especially as I look at the most complicated things around me up to the tiniest detail of the small creatures crawling on my foot. As I watched this video created by Cristobal Vila, I could not help but be amazed by how intricate each design and how God personally left His fingerprints in each. This experience was not new to me since the day I watched "How Great Is Out God" and "Laminin" by Louie Giglio. To look at the vast beauty of space and the complexity of body's building block was just so impossible to comprehend, but needless to say a big leap for faith.

The Fibonacci number, the Golden Ratio and the Phi are just fractals of what there is in the vastness of God's power. God is the greatest engineer whose designs are shown in the intricacy of human body, from the blood to our brain. We are not merely accidents or coincidence in the universe. Our body is God's most wonderful blueprint which contains no error or flaw.

Let me quote Dr. Paul Brand and Philip Yancey from Fearfully and Wonderfully Made,
The function of the digestive tract and the related organs, the longevity of the heart, the formation and function of nerves and of blood vessels, the cleansing of the blood through the kidneys, the complexity of the inner and middle ear, the sense of taste and smell, and so many other things we barely understand—each one is a marvel and beyond man’s ability to duplicate. Truly, we are fearfully and wonderfully made. How grateful we are to know the Creator—through His Son, Jesus Christ—and to marvel not only at His knowledge but also at His love (Psalm 139:17-24).
We are more than the Nautilus, sunflower and dragonfly!

But some say the world will still live without humans. Humans are unimportant in this universe.
