The Bible says: ‘When he [Jesus] had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will”…When they had done so, they caught such a...

Have you ever tried to sit and watch a seed sprout? You can’t, can you? It stays in the ground until the time is right for it to emerge. There’s a lesson here. God has planted certain things within you, and you must wait for them to take root and grow. And the unresolved issues of your past can...

Do you feel like God isn’t answering your prayers? Job the patriarch felt the same way: ‘I cry out to you, O God, but you do not answer; I stand up, but you merely look at me…When I hoped for good, evil came; when I looked for light, then came darkness’ (vv. 20,26 NIV 1984 Edition).

One of the first books to come off the printing press when it was invented was the Bible. And it’s still the world’s best-selling book. An anonymous author has written: ‘It contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the fate of sinners, and the happiness of believers. It...

The Bible detailed the original blueprint for shipbuilding. In Genesis, God told Noah to build a 1.5-million-cubic-foot ship and fill it with enough people and animals to repopulate the earth. And the specific dimensions God gave Noah turned out to be significant. In 1609 in Hoorn, Holland, a...
