The Ultimate Super Computer
The human brain is solving problems even when you are not consciously aware that there is a problem that needs solving. For example, the human eye has a blind spot in it. You never notice it because your brain fills that blind spot in for you (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filling-in). There are exercises that can be done to “trick” your brain into letting you see the blind spot; however, it is not easy because your brain is so good at filling in the blanks for you.
This amazing supercomputer is also attempting to “fill in” the mystery of God. The human mind is faced with a conundrum: How can God be real when I never see him do anything? The human super computer will attempt to fill the gap by pulling from other experiences and your environment to “solve” the mystery.
Beware! The things you “know” are often the result of your brain attempting to “fill in the gaps” with past experiences or environmental influences.
Isaiah 55:8-9 (GW) tells us: “My thoughts are not your thoughts, and my ways are not your ways,” declares the LORD.“Just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways, and my thoughts are higher than your thoughts.” Our finest logic will never be sufficient to enable us to understand how God works. He is on a level that we cannot comprehend with our human rational.
The answer to this over reacting supercomputer is faith. Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Faith allows a person to step out into the unknown and trust that there will be something there. Sometimes God may “push” us out of the nest in order to show us that we can fly. These pushes are meant to teach us to exercise our faith so we can eventually step out and follow him without being pushed.
Without stepping out on the limb, in faith, you will always wonder if there is anything to that God thing or if it is simply a crutch for weak minded people. Have you been thrust into situations that give you the option to trust God? Use your faith and trust that all things work for good when you are with God.
