Application

The earth rotates on its axis at approximately 1000 miles per hour. If that had been hundred miles per hour, our days and nights would be ten times longer, and our planet would ultimately burn and freeze. Under such circumstances  vegetation could not live! If the earth were as small as the moon, the power of gravity would be too weak to retain sufficient atmosphere for man’s  needs; but if it were as large as Jupiter, Saturn, or Uranus, extreme gravitation would make human movement almost impossible. It is obvious that the Creator has planned this world to suit man’s needs. Viewing God’s works, the Psalmist exclaimed, “In wisdom hast Thou made them all!”
