Many years ago, during my wilderness time, I put my Bible away on a shelf. I had fallen into the bad habit of not wanting to hear what He was saying to me. Rather than seek Him out for guidance and help, I turned and ran, thinking that I could hide. The result was disastrous. Then, on one traumatic evening when I was alone and afraid, I was inexplicably drawn to His Word. As tears streamed down my face I held its leather bound pages in my hands and let it fall open. There, staring me in the face were words I had never read before, but words that were exactly the ones I needed to hear. They weren't placating words, as they were hard to read. But, I knew in that moment they revealed the truth. They went straight to my heart and turned my life around. Has that ever happened to you? If so, please don’t think of it as mere coincidence. God’s Word always has meaning and always accomplishes His purpose, for God never sends junk mail.
“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize
what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.
God uses it to prepare and equip His people to do every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
The Bible is the infallible, inspired Word of God. Through it, we are reminded of God’s redemptive love and grace. His words guide us, lead us and give us hope. It always accomplish exactly what God has planned. Amazing!
“It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit.
It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it” (Isaiah 55:11).
I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty good to me.
