Today's Creation Moment

How the Aye-Aye Taps Into Lunch
Isaiah 45:18
“For thus says the LORD. Who formed the earth and made it. Who formed it to be inhabited: 'I am the LORD, and there is no other.”
The Aye-Aye is one of the strangest little monkeys on earth. Its peculiar features bear witness that it was specially designed and created to fill a unique niche in nature, not a chance development...

What Anemones Hear

Genesis 1:21a, 22a
“And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind…And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas…”

While it’s pretty easy to find an elephant’s ear, it’s not at all easy to find a frog’s ear. But how would you like to be one of the scientists who had to look for a sea anemone’s ear!
Early scientists described their work as “thinking God’s thoughts after Him.” Those of us who believe in the Creator would agree and leave the evolutionists to try to fit all living things into their simple-to-complex scheme.

In fact, scientists remain mystified at how the sea anemone can hear certain sounds that are beyond any other known creature’s hearing. The discovery that sea anemones can hear was released only recently by scientists who were studying how anemones knew when to fire their microscopic, poisonous darts to kill their prey. They found that anemones not only hear, they can hear a huge range of frequencies by doing something no other creature can do; they can change the frequency range that their hearing receptors – which are similar to ours – can pick up.

Our Creator is a God Who communicates. The Bible tells how He communicated with each of His creatures at the time of creation. But the Bible is His communication to you and me this very day!

Father, I confess that very often my ears are unable to hear Your Word because they are filled with other sounds as well as cares and worries. Please help me to better hear Your Word and know Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
