Survival in the Wilderness (4)

Notice something else Israel enjoyed in the wilderness: divine health. Think of the health issues you’d expect among two million people walking through endless desert with no doctor or hospital in sight. Yet from the youngest to the oldest, ‘He…brought them out…and there was

What else do you need in the wilderness? Water! You can live without food for about forty days, but without water you’ll die much faster. It’s the same in the spiritual realm; you can get by in life without a lot of things, but you won’t make it without God. In the ...

Your Eyes: A Divine Masterpiece

Evolution says where there’s a want, nature will provide what’s needed. Really? In Natural Theology, Dr. William Paley writes: ‘To keep the eye moist and clean—which qualities are necessary to its brightness and its use—a wash is constantly supplied by a secretion for the ...

Freedom from People Pleasing

Freedom from People Pleasing

Spiritually speaking, you’re probably not as far along the road as you’d like to be; but thank God you’re still on the road! At one time you were a stranger to God’s unstoppable unconditional love, now you’re part of the family! Paul writes: ‘You received the word…not as the
