My covenant I will not break, Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips. Psalm 89:34
An unbelieving professor in a university, in speaking of the Bible, said that it was quite impossible in these days to believe in any book whose authorship is unknown.
He then wondered how any civilized person could still believe in the Bible.
In response, a Christian student asked if the compiler of the multiplication table was known. "No!" answered the professor. The student countered, "Then, of course, you do not believe in it." "Oh yes," was the professor's reply.
"I believe in it because it works well." "So does the Bible," was the rejoinder from the student.
"I believe in it because it works". The skeptic professor had no answer to that. Yes, we believe the Bible because it works. But the Bible does not work because it has supernatural power in itself.
No. The Bible works because it is the word of our supernatural God. God inspired people to write down His word for us so that we can know His thoughts and walk in His ways.
For the Bible to work for you, you must:
• Respect what it says. The Bible is the word of God and so must be read with reverence. Its words are inspired by God.
• Understand what it says. Spend time to understand the historical and cultural context of the Bible and how it applies to you today.
• Believe what it says. Understanding must lead to faith. Faith is the force that releases the power of God.
• Apply what it says. When you dare to act on the demands of scripture, you will release God's supernatural power to work on your behalf.
Prayer: Lord, make Your Word real to me and reveal Your power in my life.
Scriptural Reading: Psalm 89:28-34
