When Doubts Arise, Reason It Out

When Doubts Arise, Reason It Out

At a time when faith is shaken, remember what it is that gives you faith in the Person of God. Besides the Bible, what is it that you turn to when people speak about evolution? What is it you turn to when people express their confidence that there cannot be a god? Where do you go in the back of your mind to be renewed in the faith that you cannot be wrong? Do you think about the miraculously designed human body? Do you think of the many parts of the human body that were added just to make our life better?How are we different from the animals? We can reason matters out. Given enough information we can solve the most complex equations.

Consider the human colon or bladder. We could have been created without these, waste would drip or drop from us without any control. Our Loving Designer has foreseen this would not be very dignified for us or desirable while we are eating or talking to each other. Out of His Fore-Love for us He added these to our ancestors Adam and Eve to enhance the human experience.

Reason too, how we see in color, while many animals only see in black and white. Think how we can smell aromas and taste fresh fruit. How our ears can hear conversation or melodious sounds. How our lips and tongue can utter sounds that we develop into words and language. Is not our life so much better than the animals because we can communicate with each other and build on each other’s thoughts? Has anyone ever shouted a warning to you that prevented a bad accident?

Reason It Out: Who gave humans the ability to communicate?

Think how our body was designed to be mobile. How our toes make it possible for us to climb hillsides and our fingers grip that we might climb a tree. The human body is the ultimate all-terrain vehicle; it was not designed by some mindless force or power. No it had to be designed by a very intelligent individual. The multi-purpose of our bodies give evidence to forethought of a designer, not the chaos of an explosion or the result there of.

Reason It Out: Who Gave Humans Agility and Mobility?

Think too, how there are male and female that were created to be united as one. The man has a distinctive strong and bold nature while the woman is gentler and thoughtful. As a couple they both can find enjoyment in learning from each other and sharing their thoughts day after day. What would it be like if men and women were just alike in their thoughts? Like being married to yourself; would conversation be interesting? Why don’t all people have the same personality? Who decided that each person would be a unique individual in their thought and not just a duplicated of their mother or father? These questions were answered by someone who completely understands how to manipulate the hormones and substances of our brains and bodies from conception to form a unique individual with the ability to cultivate the thoughts and actions that would make him or her who they are. Who has done all this?

If You Have Spoken to One German Shepard, You’ve Spoken to All.

Think of the conception and birth of our children. The act of conception did not have to be enjoyable for us. No our Loving Designer designed the male and female with added nerve endings and muscle spasms that bring us enjoyment. The timing of the male being faster than the female guaranteed that life would go on. If the timing was reversed, it’s less likely anyone would ever get pregnant. When conceived, the child grows from two particles that cannot be seen with the naked eye. The two particles have some family medical history of each parent in the DNA of each particle. The two DNA’s merge; giving the child its own DNA, with some distinct values of the mother and father. Think of what it takes to put all the DNA information of how a human body will develope into a living cell and have it be unique, an individual human being.

Reason It Out: After All These Years, Why Has Life Not Just Died Off?

David while under inspiration wrote that all out parts are down in writing at Psalms 139:16, I’m sure this refers to our individual genetic code. If it is impossible for these facts to be by chance, the opposite must be true. The human body must be the work of an incredible designer. Our Designer and Creator must be a very Intelligent, Loving and Thoughtful Being, deserving of our gratitude. Revelation 4:11 states “You are worthy, Jehovah our God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power, because you created all things, and because of your will they came into existence and were created.”  Please Read or Listen To

 Psalms 139

139  O Jehovah, you have searched through me, and you know me.

2  You know when I sit down and when I rise up.

You discern my thoughts from afar.

3  You observe me when I travel and when I lie down;

You are familiar with all my ways.

4  There is not a word on my tongue,

But look! O Jehovah, you already know it well.

5  Behind and before me, you surround me;

And you lay your hand upon me.

6  Such knowledge is beyond my comprehension.

It is too high for me to reach.

7  Where can I escape from your spirit,

And where can I run away from your face?

8  If I were to ascend to heaven, you would be there,

And if I were to make my bed in the Grave, look! you would be there.

9  If I would fly away with the wings of the dawn

To reside by the most remote sea,

10  Even there your hand would lead me

And your right hand would take hold of me.

11  If I say: “Surely darkness will conceal me!”

Then the night around me would become light.

12  Even the darkness would not be too dark for you,

But night would be as bright as the day;

Darkness is the same as light to you.

13  For you produced my kidneys;

You kept me screened off  in my mother’s womb.

14  I praise you because in an awe-inspiring way I am wonderfully made.

Your works are wonderful,

I know this very well.

15  My bones were not hidden from you

When I was made in secret,

When I was woven in the depths of the earth.

16  Your eyes even saw me as an embryo;

All its parts were written in your book

Regarding the days when they were formed,

Before any of them existed.

17  So to me, how precious your thoughts are!

O God, how vast is the sum of them!

18  If I try to count them, they outnumber the grains of sand.

When I awake, I am still with you.

19  O God, if only you would slay the wicked!

Then the violent men would depart from me,

20  Those who say things against you with evil intent;

They are your adversaries who take up your name in a worthless way.

21  Do I not hate those who hate you, O Jehovah,

And loathe those who revolt against you?

22  I have nothing but hatred for them;

They have become real enemies to me.

23  Search through me, O God, and know my heart.

Examine me, and know my anxious  thoughts.

24  See whether there is in me any harmful way,

And lead me in the way of eternity.

I Hope These Thoughts Will Help You Come To The Right Conclusions
