Psalm 89:9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.
Water water everywhere! Did you know there are approximately three hundred and thirty-one million cubic miles of water on the earth? That water is the only known substance that can exist in gas, liquid, and solid form on earth within just a few degrees of each other. That about ninety-six percent of the world’s water is contained in the oceans and about two percent in the polar ice caps leaving only two percent for rivers streams lakes and underground water supplies. Did you know water covers over seventy percent of the earth’s surface? Those are some amazing facts. Earths water seems to be controlled by four things. There are the winds that continually blow and shift the surfaces of the waters. Another is the fact the earth is continually rotating. Have you ever tried to walk with a full glass of water? I’m sure you get the idea. Then there are the gravitational pulls from the solar system and the earth, which seem to draw the bodies of water back and forth. Finally, there is the difference in temperatures of waters as they move from place to place.
Now here is a marvelous fact that scientist seem to overlook. Our God controls it all. He controls the wind, gravitational pulls, the earth’s rotation, and temperature. Not to mention He knew how much water the earth needed combined with the plant life to make the oxygen so we could survive here. He keeps it all in balance every day, so the rivers and oceans do not continually over run our shores. Our God controls it all. Sounds like a full-time job. However, this is only one of the many things that God maintains, and yet, He still has time for us. Furthermore, we are more important to Him than all the water in the universe.
Jesus told the lady at the well in John 4:14 “But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” Come and drink that water which is of our Lord. It is life eternal, only available by trusting in Christ. He controls it all. What a Saviour.
