God created some of the smallest animals on the fifth day of creation when He filled the waters with microscopic life, and created the winged insects.
The term "winged bird" in Genesis 2:21 means anything with wings, including insects. God created more than 800,000 kinds of insects.
Not only are there many different kinds of insects, but there are many insects of each kind. For every perosn on the earth you can probably find one million insects!
There is no place on earth you can go to get away from insects. They live on all kinds of land, in fresh water, and some even live in the ocean.
The smallest and simplest of animals are so small they cannot be seen without a microscope. They are known as portozoans.
God created about 30,000 different kinds of portozoans.
Our God is in charge of the vast universe of spinning stars and planets, but He is also the God of "small things" - small animals, small details and small problems. He cares about us!
