You are too improbable to be unintentional.

I recently read an article that made the claim that the odds of you (as in the person-who-is-reading-this “you”) existing are 1 in 10^2,685,000, or 10 followed by 2,685,000 zeros. That’s so statistically improbable that we would just consider the odds to be zero! A helpful comparison is to consider that the current estimate for number of atoms in the entire universe is 10^80.

They got this number by taking the likelihood that you would inherit your exact DNA structure from your parents (1 in 400,000,000,000,000,000 (that’s 400 quadrillion)) and multiplied that by 150,000 iterations of generations from the “beginning of time”. Arguments about how many generations have existed since the beginning of time aside, the number is still statistically zero!

With the improbability that you would even exist as you are from your parent’s DNA, it’s overwhelming to think of the following truths:

 

YOU WERE CAREFULLY CREATED.

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. – Psalm 139:13-16

 

YOUR LIFE PURPOSE HAS BEEN APPOINTED.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” – Jeremiah 1:5

 

YOU ARE GOD’S SKILLFUL WORK OF ART.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. – Ephesians 2:10

 

YOU ARE MADE IN GOD’S IMAGE.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. – Genesis 1:27

 

GOD GIVES YOU LIFE.

The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life. – Job 33:4

 

YOU ARE WORTH THE LIFE OF CHRIST.

You were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. – 1 Corinthians 6:20

 


 

So don’t waste it.
