Little thought is given to the fact that the human mind, however efficient and intelligent it might be, is still finite. That is, the human mind does have limitations. Even the mind of a genius has a definite limit to its output, capabilities, creativity, etc. Many also fail to realize that any given human’s intelligence is vastly restricted by the accumulation of knowledge learned to date. For instance, not even Michelangelo had the mental ability to invent the television or the cell phone. These devices could not come into being unless and until someone else had discovered how to harness electricity. Someone else had to invent the vacuum tube in order for the television set to be invented, and so on, and so on. You see, even the mind of a genius “borrows” from a host of others, who have preceded him in time and imparted their ingenious ideas to him via their writings, lectures, inventions, etc. Also, the human mind is limited to understanding that which is of human intelligence or less. And even then there are restrictions and limitations. Who knows what goes on in the mind of the dumb looking cow as it stands beside the fence chewing its cud? What is the silent, ominous appearing shark thinking as it swims ever closer to the apprehensive scuba diver? You see, man cannot even comprehend the inner workings of lower animal mind. How much less can he hope to comprehend and understand divine super intelligence – intelligence so profound that it created the human mind!!! Could Einstein’s six year old grandson comprehend and understand his famous grandfather’s theory of relativity? Of course not! Likewise, human beings, even those of us now gifted with the powerful Holy Spirit imparted to our minds, even we are perplexed and mystified by some of our Creator’s inventions, one of them being the communications system He has developed whereby He maintains vital, on-going contact with those physical beings of earth who have surrendered their lives to the leading, guidance and supervision of His Son, Jesus Christ. God not only can hear, separate and understand prayers uttered simultaneously by millions, if not billions, of humans in hundreds and hundreds of languages and dialects, they don’t even have to be uttered!!! The prayer can be internalized, merely a thought in the human subject’s mind and our Great God can receive the prayer and understand the same. And let’s go one step further. God knows everything there is to know about that prayer long before that human mind even thinks it! Who doesn’t want a right relationship with a Creator like that who says to His human creation, “Come now, and let us reason together….”
Mind-boggling, ain’t it? The apostle Paul, in writing the early believers at Corinth, Greece said, “The things of God knows no man, but by the Spirit of God” (I Corinthians 2:11). He went on to write, “But the natural man (the unconverted man) receives NOT the things (revealed) of (or “by”) the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (I Corinthians 2:14).
