I was sitting on my porch one evening, as I so often do to unwind and take in the beautiful sunset and views. As I looked at the ocean in the distance, I noticed several rain clouds that were unleashing over the ocean on the south-west side of the island that I reside on. I couldn’t help but to look around to see if it was raining nearby on the land surface, but it wasn’t. The rain as is so common in the Caribbean travels over the ocean from one island/key to the next.
Psalm 95:5 KJV “The sea is His, for He made it, and His hands formed the dry land.”
Then a thought came to me, “what would happen if the oceans were never replenished?” But that’s something we as humans don’t have to worry about, because God designed our beautiful planet with that in mind.
“And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.” Genesis 1:3 KJV
As a matter of fact, as a science major we learned that all of the water that is on the earth has always been here. Earth never gets water added to it, nor does water disappear from the earth. Water is constantly recycled in a process known as the hydrologic or water cycle. God’s original design for Earth is still in play today. Earth’s water continuously moves through the atmosphere, into and out of the oceans, over the land surface, and underground.
