Contrary to what we've been led to believe, science and Scripture aren't necessarily opposed. The ranks of Bible-believing scientists have grown rapidly since the discovery of quantum physics, which demonstrates the amazing symmetry and order that make up the universe. Did you know that one of the most brilliant scientific books of our time was written by no less than sixty notable scientists, including twenty-four Nobel Prize winners? The book's title is Cosmos, Bios, Theos, which means Universe, Life, and God. One of the contributing authors, Yale physicist Professor Henry Margenau, concludes, "There's only one convincing answer" for the intricate laws that exist in nature. And what does this brilliant man think it is? Evolution? Coincidence? Happenstance? No! Margenau believes that "creation is by an omnipotent omniscient God." So to believe in God is to believe in science...and the infallible Word of God. The Bible says: "Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." Isaiah 40.28-31). That means through prayer you can tap into the greatest power and most loving care in the universe. Amazing! How you face each day depends on Who you're looking to. So look to God. Put your trust in Him. "Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established." (Proverbs 16:3).
"And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers: If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul." (Deuteronomy 30:9-10)
As we devote our lives to serve God, He blesses the fruit of our labors with great delight and pleasure. Just as He rejoices to bless us, so also Christians should desire to serve Him. This unfathomable pleasure in serving is solely founded on the Word of God and living in accordance to it. When we follow His commands with all our heart, soul, and mind, God prospers our way over an abundance.
