The Word of God Is Food for Our Souls
“The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the
testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple,” Psalm 19:7.
The brain is one of the largest organs in the human body. It contains more than one hundred billion nerves that communicate in trillions of connections called synapses. The brain is made up of many specialized areas that work together: five functions of the brain are creativity, memory and the ability to learn, social interaction, emotion and feelings, planning. It connects to the spinal cord and controls automatic functions such as breathing, digestion, heart rate, and blood pressure. The adult human brain weighs on average about three pounds, about two percent of the total body weight. The most intelligent animal brain on earth is the dolphin which has a brain more complex than humans, the dumbest animal brain is the domestic turkey.
The brain collects and stores about a million gigabytes of information. When one studies the Word of God the information is stored in the brain and transferred to the soul, changing attitudes, aiding in decisions and going forward with life under the guidance of God. “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2). No other book has brought man so many blessings as the Word of God; it is supernatural food for man’s hungry soul. “How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:103-105).
THOUGHT: A Christian who does not study God’s Word is living far below the standard God intends.
