Our Wonderful and Powerful God
ILLUS: The following is the amazing testimonial of the conversion of a medical doctor:
"In an anatomy room, a dead body meant nothing to me. I could not visualize the man or woman it might have been. Life left few records on the immobile face. For weeks I worked, and each day the wonder grew. Then one day I was working on an arm and hand, studying the perfect mechanical arrangements of the muscles and tendons, how the sheaths of certain muscles are split to let tendons of other muscles through, so that the hand may be delicate, small and yet powerful. I was all alone in the laboratory when the overwhelming belief came: a thing like this is not just chance but a part of a plan, a plan so big that only God could have conceived it.
Religion had been to me a matter of form, a thing without conviction, but now everything was an evidence of God--the tendons of the hand, the patterns of the little butterfly's wings--all are a part of God's wonderful design."1
That doctor came to realize what we already know; and that is that we have a "Wonderful and Powerful God," who can do anything.
