RECOLLECTION OF PAST EVENTS IS ONE OF GOD’S GREATEST GIFT TO US ALL
WRITTEN BY EDITOR KALAHAN DENG
How many of us wake up in the morning and say thank you God for allowing me to recall yesterday, last week, month, or even last year events? How would it be with NO recollection of your name, family members, or daily activities such as work, school or such a like?
Do we really comprehend how our internal organs such as brains work? Why is it impossible for specialists’ doctors to restore a dead brain to life? Neurologists claim that there are millions of brain cells; if so, why are they unable to revive some of these cells before they die? Do brain cells die at the same time or not? Well, there must be someone who knows the things that are beyond our comprehension such as our brains growth and death.Let’s look for a moment at the book of Deuteronomy 29:29 in the Old Testament which says, “The secret things belong to the LORD OUR GOD, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever that we may follow all the words of this law.” What are the things revealed to us? Well, such as nature and its beauty and the secret things are like our brains functioning and dysfunctional. Who knows how the brain of another person operates except God who made it?
Unfortunately, to some, God’s name is inconvenience or just irritating .But what we do not know about God is that He does not care about us only; He also cares about the nature so that we can enjoy the things that are in it .The King David in the book of Psalm 65:9-13 says, “You, that’s God, care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained it. You drench its furrows and level its ridges; you soften it with showers and bless its crops. You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance. The grasslands of the desert overflow; hills are clothed with gladness. The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing.
Imagine for a moment, the nature that lacks brain does shout for joy for what God has done to it. But with our living brains are unable to acknowledge His Glorious Name.
It is true that we do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so we cannot understand the work of God, the maker of all things, including those who doubt or deny His existence.
