GOD’S WORD FOR JANUARY 29
GOD’S WORD FOR JANUARY 29 ~ ~ Job 8:16~ ~ “He is green before the sun, and his branch shoot forth in his garden.”
We all learned about photosynthesis at school. For this chemical reaction you need chlorophyll and sunlight. For thousands of years, man has known that for green plants to prosper, they need the sunlight.
A few years ago, a team of researchers from the University of British Columbia discovered pFChotosynthesis taking place nearly one-and-a-half miles below the surface of the sea off the coast of Central America. Of course, no sunlight penetrates to that depth, so a study began.
They found a type of bacteria.that was responsible, which live around hydrothermal vents on the floor of the ocean. The vents spew out superheated water at about 570 degrees Fahrenheit. As this water hits the cold ocean water, gas bubbles form and almost immediately collapse, producing a dim flash of light. Chemical reactions can also create a small amount of light, as does the formation of crystals under these conditions. Apparently, these bacteria are able to make enough energy to power their metabolism from these unlikely sources of light.
Talk about micro-gardening!!!!!
Our spiritual life, —our relationship with our Savior and Lord, would not do well like this. We can’t flourish spiritually with little spurts of Light from Him. We need to have our thoughts on Him, and be reading His Word—-His letter to us, as well as speaking to Him in prayer.
In exchange for our submission to Him, repentance for our sins, and dependence upon Him, He gives us immeasurable blessings that we see brighter and brighter each minute by the Light of His Love.
That’s just the start—In eternity it will be even better!!!!
Give Him the time now………you’ll never regret it.
