The Bible talks about the water cycle. ‘All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full; to the place from which the rivers come, there they return again.’ Every day the Mississippi River dumps approximately 420 billion gallons of water into the Gulf of Mexico. And when you think about...

The Bible predicted modern telecommunications. Does that sound incredible to you? If so, consider this verse: ‘Can you send out lightnings, that they may go, and say to you, “Here we are!”?’ Fifteen hundred years before Christ, in the book of Job, God said light could be sent, and manifest...

When you’ve been physically, emotionally, or sexually abused, it undermines your self-worth. You think, ‘If someone did that to me, there must be something wrong with me.’ You feel like your soul is soiled; like you’re ‘damaged goods’. But you’re not! These two Scriptures are from God’s lips to...

The Bible says God put Adam into the garden ‘to work it and take care of it’ (NIV 2011 Edition). So even when you have a great home environment, you’ve still got to ‘work it and take care of it’. Left unattended, the best garden in the world will eventually turn into a weed patch. Similarly, if...
