God's accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs. For example, the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days; those of the canary in 14 days; those of the barnyard hen in 21 days. The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days; those of the mallard in 35 days. The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days. (Notice, they are all divisible by seven).
God's wisdom is
seen in the making of an elephant. The four legs of this great beast
all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so made.
God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to live
on two legs. For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can
rise from the ground easily. The horse rises from the ground
God's wisdom is
revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as well as in
the number of grains. Each watermelon has an even number of strips on
the rind. Each orange has an even number of segments. Each ear of corn
has an even number of rows. Each stalk of wheat has an even number of
grains. Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number

if you will only entrust Him with your life. If you try to regulate
your own life, it will only be a mess and a failure. Only the One Who
made the brain and the heart can successfully guide them
Thus the Lord in His wonderful grace can arrange the life that is entrusted to His care in such a way that it will carry out His purposes and plans, and will be fragrant with His presence. Only the God-planned life is successful. Only the life given over to the care of the Lord is safe.
