God's Deep Thoughts
This study is based on Psalm 92:5, which says, "O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep." God's intelligence is equal to His power, which any study of creation makes obvious. And just as amazing, there is no way to count God's thoughts nor fully understand them. Your thoughts will turn to wonder and greater faith in this Divine Thinker.

God in a Box
In 1 Samuel 4, ancient Israel became superstitious about their most sacred object, the ark, which resided in the tabernacle. Unfortunately, it became associated with God Himself, or rather, that God was somehow inside it and would pop out if taken into battle! From this foolish mistake we can learn valuable lessons that will keep us from superstitious ideas about God's help.

Don't Waste Your Faith
If we develop a careless attitude about precious things, we will eventually need the very things we took for granted or squandered. Faith ranks as one of life's most precious gifts. Since we get faith by hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17), we can waste the Word itself! The old saying, "Use it or lose it," applies even to faith. This study will excite you to both get and use your faith.

All God's Happy Endings
From James 5:11, we learn that God wants our lives to end right. Like a good story that has many ups and downs, it's the end that defines whether or not it is a triumph or a tragedy. God is the first author, and His masterpiece, the Bible, has a happy ending in Revelation. And God makes the story of our lives end happily as well, if we will let Him. Here's lasting encouragement!

The Spiritual Sphere
Our physical world has three spheres: sky, land, and water. God has designed all His creatures to properly excel in one of these spheres. Birds can hop on land, but soar and speed in flight. Fish will flop till dead on land, but swim with grace in water. And since Christians are spiritual, we can only excel in a spiritual environment. Philippians 4:1-9 is the springboard into this fascinating subject.
