So many times, I’m driven by how I feel and not what I think.
God wants us to be smart. He wants us to use our brains and “Consider” what we do. To make good decisions using logic – not our emotions.
Do you ever feel like you’re not smart?
The Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz said “If I only had a brain.”
I’m here to tell you that you have a great brain.
God formed you in your mother’s womb.
In Psalm 139:14 He says that you are fearfully and wonderfully made
You have a great brain. It weights approximately 3 pounds
Scientist report that it feels like butter. It has no pain receptors. Doctors can operate on the brain while the patient is awake. Yikes!
It’s your most amazing organ! It’s irreplaceable.
With it you learn and reason. It control’s all the functions of your body
It’s better than any computer ever built.
Scientist are trying to discover the mysteries of the brain
We are born with approximately 100 billion brain cells – more or less.
Remember in school some kids are labeled “the brains?”
Some people do actually have bigger brains, but that doesn’t mean they have a higher IQ and there are many people with high IQs who never do much in life. Some people with average IQs are smart and become quiet successful. It’s not the size of your brain that counts or your IQ, what matters is if you use it. We use a very small fraction of our brain’s potential.
There are many smart people that are not wise-
Wisdom is brain knowledge – guided by understanding.
Proverbs 2:6 For the Lord gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding
Pray and Ask God for knowledge, wisdom and understanding.
That would be a very smart thing to do!
