I hope you are doing well and in the best of health. I have been thinking
about the wisdom and understanding of God and I felt led to write a message
on God's wisdom and how we should take comfort in the Lord's infinite
understanding. I hope you will be encouraged and challenged by this
message to see the wisdom of God in a different light and know that your
every problem has an answer that God is able to solve.
I have been studying the human face and learning more of what our body
needs to operate properly 24 hours a day seven days a week. Let me start
first with the human face. If you were to ask me to work with two eyes,
two ears, one nose and one mouth, I can probably come up with 15 or 20
different faces. In a human perspective, there's only so much you can do
with these few variables, and yet God has created over 6.5 billion living
human beings with completely different features, except of course for twins
and triplets, etc. How much wisdom does our God have that He can create so
many different people, with so little to work with?
Through the many studies that have been taken, doctors have recorded that
the average life span of a person is 76 years. Some people live longer
and some people live less, but the average is 76 years of age. I looked
up a few facts and I think you will be astonished at the results. The human
heart beats on average 70 times per minute. That's 4,200 times per hour,
100,800 times per day, and 2,822,400 heart beats per month. If you take
the average life span and multiply that by the average heart beats per
minute, the sum would come to more than 2.7 billion (2,796,192,000) heart
beats in that person's life. If you ask me, I think that is extraordinary.
The heart is nothing more than a muscle with two ventricles and four other
arteries that takes in the used blood and pumps out fresh blood to keep
the body working properly. The heart never rests and is always pumping,
just as God created it to function.
Here are two more interesting facts concerning the human body. If you
were to measure a body's blood vessels which consist of arteries, veins
and capillaries, the length would be between 60,000 to 100,000 miles in
length depending on the person's age. That length of blood vessels would
stretch around the world more than two times. Imagine the order every
blood vessel must be in so that everything in our body works properly in
such a confined space. I also looked into what our lungs must go through
to keep our body functioning properly. The average breaths a person takes
per minute is about 20. That is 1,200 per hour, 28,800 per day and 806,400
breaths taken per month. When you multiply the average life span by the
average breaths taken per minute, that person would take more than 798
million (798,912,000) breaths of air in their lifetime.
I wrote all of that to say this. God in His infinite wisdom has made our
body to work in perfect order without malfunction and in harmony with our
other bodily organs. Many scientists have agreed that the human body is
the greatest architectural feat ever seen by the eyes of man. Many have
tried to duplicate God's perfect creation, and all have failed. Only God
in His unsearchable wisdom can create something that works without stoppage
and without the help of man. Of course, taking care of our body and
filling it with the proper God ordained foods, will help it last and work
better over the span of our life. Always keep in mind that God calls this
body "The temple of the Holy Spirit", so make sure to take care of your
temple everyday and treasure the body God has given you. (1 Cor. 6:19)
This message is an encouragement to you to know that just as God has the
ability to create something so wonderful as the human body, He has that
same ability to meet every need that you have in your life. There was no
part so small in our bodies, that God did not take the time to oversee and
make sure works properly, and I believe God is just as diligent in meeting
our needs when we depend on Him. We do not have the power in our finite
minds to heal our self when disease strikes, but God does. Just as a
mechanic knows how to fix a broken down car, so it is with God who can
heal and restore your health when all else fails. (Psalm 103:1-5)
I want you to be encouraged not only because God is able to heal you of
whatever sickness has affected your body, but also because God is able to
fix the parts of our life that has nothing to do with our physical being.
God is able to heal and restore your marriage, your relationship with your
children, your financial situation, and anything else that you can think
of. When Moses asked God what His name was, God responded to Moses and
said my name is "I Am". God wants us to know that He is the answer to
whatever problem that has us feeling downhearted or discouraged. (Exodus 3:14)
If a problem comes your way and you do not have the answer, I encourage
you to take that problem to the Great I Am. He is the Healer, the
Restorer, the Redeemer and the Friend who will never ever leave your side.
Trust God and lean on Him today if life seems overwhelming and you will
feel His peace that surpasses all understanding.
(Psalm 34:4-8) (Isaiah 53:4-5) (Philippians 4:6-7)
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Psalm 139:1-6 "O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou knowest
my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my
ways. For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest
it altogether. Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand
upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot
attain unto it."
Jeremiah 31:3 "The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have
loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I
Jeremiah 1:4-5 "Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Before I
formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of
the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations."
Psalm 139:14-18 "I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully
made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My
substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously
wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance,
yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in
continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How
precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of
them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when
I awake, I am still with thee."
All scriptures can be found in the King James Version.
