GOD’S WORD FOR AUGUST 30
GOD’S WORD FOR AUGUST 30 ~ ~ Isaiah 43:20~ ~ “The beast of the field shall honor me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.”
“Who prepares feed for the raven When its young cry to God, And wander about without food?”
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and pleading with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
It’s a dark, moonless night. A barn owl perches, silently as a shadow, in a tree. A hundred feet away, a deer mouse scampers over a dry leaf, producing a slight rustling sound. Within seconds, the owl’s talons grab the mouse.
We all know that owls have excellent vision in the darkness. Researchers have learned that there is much more to the barn owl’s abilities than vision. To get their data, they wired up 14 barn owls with headphones and then studied their responses to pairs of sounds. Their results convincingly show that barn owls construct a detailed map of their surroundings inside their brains. To locate the source of a sound, owls don’t simply add together the incoming sound signals, as would be expected. Rather, the owl’s auditory nerve cells calculate the distance of incoming sounds, then apply this information to its mental map in a process researchers could only describe as “multiplication.” Up until this time, humans were thought to be the only living beings whose thought processes used such “multiplication.” Researchers said that this “multiplication” is a much more powerful way for the brain to process information.
God knew that owls would need this ability to successfully make their living, so God – as the source of all intelligence – gave it to them.
Evolution cannot design intelligence.
God provides for all His creation. He does everything perfectly. Of course He will provide for His children who are created in His image!!!!
“So do not fear; you are more valuable than a great number of sparrows.” Matthew 10:31
Psalm 37:25-26 ~ ~ “I have been young and now I am old,
Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken
Or his descendants begging for bread.
All day long he is gracious and lends,
And his descendants are a blessing.
