"Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, Noah got drunk, Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossiper, Martha was a worrier, Thomas was a doubter, Sara was impatient, Elijah was moody, Moses stuttered, Zaccheus was short, Abraham was old and Lazarus was dead. Now, what's YOUR excuse? Don't you think God can use you too?!!"

“I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman." For Jesus said "27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY’; 28 but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart." Matthew 5:27-28.
If the Bible up to this point has been proven to be 100% accurate in the areas of history, archeology, prophecy, and science (which includes biology, and astronomy)... how is it that after 6,000 years (4000 Old Testament, and 2000 New Testament) not ONE person has proven it to be inaccurate or a lie/fable? I mean it stands to reason that someone somewhere would have found evidence that the Bible was inaccurate or incorrect at some point in history, especially in this day and age of science and technology.
How arrogant is man to think he can know the mind of God? Man, who bleeds, gets sick, can be wounded, and die... how can he think he can possibly know the answers only God knows? The answer is PRIDE! Man thinks he can figure out what only God knows. For God holds not only all the answers but he holds the very atoms of the universe and our existence between His fingertips!

You whom I seek are nowhere to be found... I look above and below and You are not there. I look to my left and to my right, yet I cannot see you. I hear the crash of thunder and look... but You are not there. I see the whirlwind of a cyclone and tornado still, You are not there. In the rage of the fire I couldn't find You. I see tidal waves of destruction and still I cannot see You. I search my heart, my mind, and my soul but I am alone... You are not there. I feel myself drowning in an ocean, the waves overcoming me... I'm in despair. Where are You? And then I remember what You said... I would not find You in the fire, nor the thunder, nor the cyclone, not even in the tidal wave. No, I would find You and hear You in the still, soft, gentle breeze... but only if I sought You with all my heart and with all my strength, and with all my soul. Then You would hear my prayer, and save me.
11 For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
