“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (II Timothy 3:16).
The Bible is a priceless one. Here you can find the saints of Old Testament as well as the New Testament alive. What a great blessing it is to know them and to follow their foot paths. When you read about them, you will not feel them to be ordinary persons of historical importance but you will feel as though they are your forefathers, brothers & sisters or any other family member. Some Biblical characters caution you.
Some characters encourage you. The lives of Enoch, Noah and Moses clearly indicate “How to walk with God?”
We are astonished to notice the level of faith in Abraham. Once God said ‘depart’, he firmly decided to obey and went to the nation god showed leaving his father, mother and everyone. He laid his full faith on God and placed his son on the altar. He fully believed that God will resurrect his son. The related portions of the scripture will strengthen your faith level over God.
How joyous it is to notice David who worships the Lord and to sing his Psalms! Though we not know the exact tune of the Psalms, we share the feelings of the saints. May his fervent following, love and worship of God enthral you. Resolve to worship God along with him.
The stubborn reverence of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, even while toiling in a hot furnace and Daniel’s determination even when thrown to a lion’s den make you still stronger. These incidences bring confidence in you to overcome any sort of challenge with the power of God. Whenever you think of Elijah let the fire of the Holy Spirit run through your nervous system. How stubborn he was in turning the entire country towards God. Will you prepare yourself for Jesus Christ’s second coming with Elijah’s spirit and strength?
Even today we get new revelations from the Bible. We receive the depth of the Biblical secrets too. Praise God for the epistles being powerful, matching and of great blessing for our lives even after 2000 years.
To meditate: – “For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit” (II Peter 1:21).
