Although neuroscience has made great progress in understanding how the brain works, scientist admit they’re still in the early stages of understanding it. They understand brain architecture, some aspects of its function, and regions that respond to environment, activate our senses, and generate movements and contain emotions. But they still can’t figure out how all these interactions contribute to behavior, perception, and memory. God’s incredibly complex, created masterpiece—humanity—is still mysterious.

David acknowledged the marvels of the human body. Using figurative language, he celebrated God’s power, evidenced by His sovereign control over the entire natural process of humans “being knit . . . together in [his] mother’s womb” (Psalm 139:13). He wrote, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful” (v. 14). The ancients viewed the development of a child inside the mother’s womb as a great mystery (see Ecclesiastes 11:5). Even with limited knowledge of the marvelous complexities of the human body, David still stood in awe and wonder of God’s amazing work and presence (Psalm 139:17-18).

The marvelous and wonderful complexity of the human body reflects the power and sovereignty of our great God. Our only responses can be praise, awe, and wonder!

Welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread. The reading for today titled God's Created Masterpiece was written by Marvin Williams. Although neuroscience has made great progress in understanding how the brain works, scientists admit they're still in the early stages of understanding it. They understand brain architecture, some aspects of its function, and regions that respond to environment, activate our senses, generate movements, and contain emotions.

But they still can't figure out how all these interactions contribute to behavior, perception, and memory. David acknowledged the marvels of the human body. Using figurative language, he celebrated God's power, evidenced by his sovereign control over the entire natural process of being knit together in his mother's womb. In Psalm 139, he wrote, Even with limited knowledge of the marvelous complexities of the human body, David still stood in awe and wonder of God's amazing work and presence. The marvelous and wonderful complexity of the human body reflects the power and sovereignty of our great God. And our only responses can be praise, awe, and wonder.

Today's Our Daily Bread devotional scripture reading is from Psalm 139 verses 13 through 18. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!

Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you. Would you pray with me? Oh, God, we are in awe at the intricacy of all of your creation, and we can't even begin to comprehend the depth of your craftsmanship. So thank you, Lord, for the love and for the care that you put into crafting us. You are truly an amazing and divine creator, and we simply worship you. It's in Jesus' name that we pray. Amen. Thanks so much for listening today. My name is Wes Ward, and today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread Ministries.
