“Trust in The Lord, with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all of your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.”
Have you heard of a Quark or Lepton? These are the things that science has shown Matter to be made from. Quarks and Leptons are smaller than Atoms! Now we understand that Leptons are made of a substance called Strings and these, almost invisible, Strings may be made up of vibrating energy.
All of these new discoveries are more and more proving the existence of a Creator, one with an intelligence supremely superior to ours. In all of our striving for success and betterment, we cannot forget that there is a Creator greater than us. I find this fascinating because I believe that we are discovering God, and ourselves, in the scientific process.
The Bible says “as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Did you know that your brain is connected to every cell in your body, including your heart? Your thoughts are impacting your whole body, with every thought you are either building your brain and cells or destroying them.
I believe that our society has relegated God to fairytale status and the mere mention of Him solicits a condescending roll of the eyes if not an outright condemnation of your statement.
What if God is not the weak fairytale guy with the long flowing robe and a bushy beard, but a being of immense power and intellect. An intellect we can hardly fathom with the mind that we possess. A being that we would be in awe of if we were to see Him? A diety with unimaginable power.
What if, and I’m just spitballing here, we were created by Him to be like Him? What if science is showing us that indeed, we possess a power of mind and body we never dreamed of? What if the scripture that says, “as a man thinketh in his heart so is he” means that, as Napoleon Hill writes, “whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” Science has shown that from birth we are wired for love, as we grow we learn to fear and to hate.
When we enter the world, we are wired to feel eternal, and if the truth be told, you still feel eternal. That eternal part of you, that’s your mind. We experience this material world through this material body, but we are the mind and that part of us we cannot even see!
Think about your mind and your brain. Where are you exactly? In your head? Your heart? Where do you reside? Is the Bible spiritual, scientific, or both?
So what does that opening verse at the top mean, exactly? I believe it means that God wants you to learn to use your mind. To, as the Bible says, “bring every thought into captivity.” Understand that negative thoughts are destroying your cells, and positive thoughts build your cells. This is something science has proven.
The Bible says, “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life so that you and your descendants might live!” What if this simply means to have good thoughts? Simple as that?
Your thoughts change your genes and genes are passed from generation to generation. What will you pass along? Good genes (life) or bad genes (death).
Believe that God is here and he is trying to communicate with you, to reach you, to grow your mind to see things as He sees them. He is our Creator and acknowledging Him will surely bring you favor in His eyes. To acknowledge the wonders of creation and give Him credit for his work will surely not go unnoticed by Him.
What have you got to lose? I believe that we are entering an exciting time in our discovery of self and God. Do not be afraid of Him, but embrace the wonders of His outreach to your world and your mind.
A great study on this is a book by Dr. Caroline Leaf called – Switch on Your Brian.
