God Freely Gives the Faith He Requires

We can forever trust God because He never changes or goes back on His Word.  In this unreliable world, He is perfectly reliable!  God says in Jeremiah 31:33, “ For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will [...]

God Knows Worlds and He Knows Wounds

Our God has infinite power.  The same God who binds up our wounds also commands stars. Consider the star, Canis Majoris.  It is a hyper-giant star, over 1,400 times larger than our sun.  It’s one of the largest stars ever discovered.  It’s so big, that it defies all the evolutionary models.  It is controversial because [...]

Is God Happy?

“Is God mainly happy or mostly mad?” How a person thinks about God effects how they relate to God.  Ancient Israel’s King David wrote these words in Psalms 16:11, “You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” According to that scripture, God’s presence [...]
