Who would believe that a butterfly can fly for 2,000 miles to escape the
winter? If it had not been documented that the Monarch butterfly does indeed do
that, people would have said that the very idea was ridiculous. But it has been
documented and it is true. If you told someone that a little caterpillar would
become a lovely butterfly and sail through the air with the greatest of ease,
you would say it could not be, but it has been documented and it is true. There
are so many things in nature that seem incredible, yet are true.

If the seemingly incredible is true of such little things as worms and
butterflies, why do we find it hard to believe in the power of an omnipotent
God. Yet some people do find it hard to believe that God can reveal Himself to
mankind, answer prayer, give strength and forgive sin. To those who have
experienced it, of course, it is not incredible at all.
