The LORD is my strength, my rock, and my fortress (Psalm 18:2)

“I love you, O LORD, my strength.  The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”

These are good words, true words, and glorious words that I can bank on.  I’m quickly finding that even the best words coming out of the mouths of some of the brightest human beings in the world on the intricacies of the brain, are still no match for this timeless truth. 

The reason that the word LORD is entirely in capital letters is because it signifies the unutterable name of God in the Hebrew (literally YHWH).  Trying to speak a word comprised entirely of consonants (as are half of the words in the Welsh language) is impossible.  That’s the point.  God’s name is too holy to pronounce.  This holy God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the faithful God throughout all generation, is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer.  He is the one in whom I take refuge, not in the assessments of the brightest specialists on the planet, whose best answers are often little more than looking through a glass dimly.  Don’t get me wrong.  I am very impressed with every doctor and specialist I have seen thus far and I thank God for them.  But…as far as understanding the intricacies of the brain…well only God Himself holds those secrets and thus far He has not been willing to let a living human brain be taken out of a skull to be studied.  The limitations of knowledge in this area should be far more humbling than they are.  They certainly are to me.
