It might look like someone taking their life into their own hands, but thankfully this lake is the only place in the world where you can swim safely amongst millions of jellyfish.

In ‘Jellyfish Lake’ on the Pacific island of Palau, swimmers can take a dip surrounded by thousands of the normally harmful marine animals which have all lost their sting.

The lake was once connected to the Pacific Ocean, but when the sea level dropped, the jellyfish became isolated in the algae-rich lake and have not had to defend themselves from predators.

As a result, their population has thrived, and the eight million jellyfish now in the lake have all lost their sting.

Tourists can now swim alongside the jellyfish in the 12,000-year-old lake, one of around 200 saline marine lakes now identified worldwide.

I’ve swam there. It’s incredible.

Unfriendly people care only about themselves; they lash out at common sense. Fools have no interest in understanding; they only want to air their own opinions. Wise words are like deep waters; wisdom flows from the wise like a bubbling brook. It is not right to acquit the guilty or deny justice to the innocent. The mouths of fools are their ruin; they trap themselves with their lips. Rumors are dainty morsels that sink deep into one’s heart. A lazy person is as bad as someone who destroys things. The rich think of their wealth as a strong defense; they imagine it to be a high wall of safety. Spouting off before listening to the facts is both shameful and foolish. Intelligent people are always ready to learn. Their ears are open for knowledge. An offended friend is harder to win back than a fortified city. Arguments separate friends like a gate locked with bars. Wise words satisfy like a good meal; the right words bring satisfaction. There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother. (Proverbs 18:1, 2, 4, 5, 7-9, 11, 13, 15, 19, 20, 24 NLT)

“What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?” (Romans 8:31, NLT)
 There are many misconceptions about God in the world today. Some people think He’s mad at them, and other’s think He’s keeping a list of all their wrongs. But that isn’t what scripture tells us. Scripture tells us that God is gracious, patient and loving; that He is forgiving and doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve. Scripture tells us that God is for us, and if God is for us, who can be against us?

Think about that for a moment. The same God who created the heavens and earth, the one who spoke the universe into existence and knows everything about you, He is on your side and wants the best for you. I love today’s verse because it is a great reminder that when God is for you, no one can win against you. Not the pain of your past. Not any mistake you’ve made. Not the forces of hell, your worst enemy, a bad economy, a difficult housing market or anything else on this earth.

Today, instead of dwelling on what you’re not, dwell on what He is — He is faithful, He is loving, He is with you and He is for you! And with God on your side, you are headed for victory all the days of your life!
