Online Bible Verses - Ecclesiastes 11:5 The maker of all things
“As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.”
One thing to always keep in mind, that created is exponentially less complex/capable than its Creator. We can see two iterations of that concept in nature, with ourselves as the link between both. First, we who are created in God’s image, in that we are, to an extent, a reflection of Him.
We love our children intensely, for example. Not with a perfect love, mind you, but with one retaining a parallel similarity.
We actually imitate God in our own ability to create. He designed miraculous flying machines called birds. We have our own versions in aircraft, obviously modeled after his. As impressive as they are, ours lack the maneuverability and fuel efficiency of the originals. Computers show striking similarity to the design found within human neurology. Both see processing capability, memory capacity and storage, along with an ability to both control and receive feedback from outside peripherals/instrumentation. Once again, impressive as they are, our versions pale in comparison to those we modeled them after.
And so exists the distinction between our capability to conceive and understand vs. His. We are impressive, only because He has instilled a hint of Himself within us. But, the Maker will always tower over what He has made. And what has been made, despite a tendency towards pride and self-sufficiency, will never be able to successfully do without Him.
