Oh, there’s about 90,000 miles of nerve fibers, around a 100 billion neurons, and some .15 quadrillion synapses. Is it amazing that the brain of brilliant doctors can study the brain to understand how we understand and think about how we think?
God created a super-computer small enough to hold in one hand and He put it between our ears. Our mind processes a whole array of thoughts, decisions, emotions, relationships, memories, calculations, jokes, images, and much more.
For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. Romans 8:6
If we use our sense and reason without the Holy Spirit’s direction, then we get all the miseries that arise from sin.
If we use our sense and reason with the help and filling of the Holy Spirit, then we get all the benefits of abundant life, eternal life, and a peace that passes understanding.
Now, see if you can get your mind around that today.
Our Father, thank-you for indwelling us with your Holy Spirit when you saved us. Lead us to obey the command to be filled with Your Spirit over and over today. Your promise of life and peace thrills us and motivates us to set our minds on the Your Holy Spirit!
