We are now in the home stretch of our series through the miracle of life. The 3rd trimester, the seventh month, is a big one for baby. The little one can now hear and see, and thanks to continuing brain development, retain the knowledge of what they are hearing or seeing. In this trimester the babies body is busy laying down layers of fat for the big day ahead. I want to focus on the ears today.
When it comes to intelligent design, I can see few better that glorify the creative intelligence of our great God than the human ear. Our ability to hear, and the design of our ears, is truly a work of art. See for yourself in this short clip…
Wow, it never ceases to amaze me that our body is doing so much work, we don’t even realize it. So much effort goes into hearing, and as we’ve already learned, thinking!
Beloved brethren, the purpose of this series is not to give you new points to argue with atheists on. It’s not even my goal to convince evolutionist that their theory is wrong. My goal here in this series is to encourage you, uplift and edify you, and to bring glory to God for His great name is worthy of all glory! How does learning about the human ear, or when the baby in the womb develops hearing, encourage you? Everything I’ve written about throughout the past several Monday’s flies in the face of evolution. We’re often accused of believing in the Pie in the Sky, it can become discouraging to constantly be mocked and ridiculed.
There was a point where even Timothy was discouraged, and Paul set out to encourage his son in the faith. Jesus encouraged His disciples, even on the night when He was to have the full wrath of God poured out on Him! The Psalms are filled with encouragement as well. We should encourage one another, embolden one another, and use whatever gifts we have been given to edify the brethren. I pray, first and foremost, that this series will bring God glory, and from that encouragement to my beloved brothers and sisters in Christ!
We really are fearfully and wonderfully made. Next Monday we’re going to delve into the miracle of the eyes, and some of the myths surrounding them. I know you will all be having a very busy week, filled with baking, fellowship, and for some travels. We will be traveling ourselves tomorrow straight across the United States. I pray that you will all have safe travels, and I look forward to the day, beloved, that we pull up chairs to a heavenly feast and are together for fellowship! As always, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
