Devotion

Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace.

Romans 8:5-6

Did you know your brain contains about 100 billion neurons? These cells shoot electricity through each other to communicate and produce your thoughts. The more you challenge your brain, the more it changes and adapts, making new connections.

Compare that to a computer. Our minds sift through and process more every day than can be stored on the hard drive of your personal computer. And how many computers do you know that can rewire themselves?

Did our amazing neural network happen by accident? The result of a random combination of chemicals?

Of course not. If you found a lap top sitting in your backyard, you wouldn’t think it created itself. Our magnificent brain, more complex than any computer, is evidence of God’s ultimate design. Whenever you hear someone say we were created by random processes over time, remember, the fact that you can ponder such a question is proof of its falsehood.

Dear Lord, thank you for creating our bodies to be a reflection of Your creative genius. And for giving us the brains to appreciate it. In Jesus’s name. Amen.
