“The law of the LORD is perfect,
converting the soul...”
Dearly beloved in Christ,
I greet you in the sweet name of the Lord Jesus Christ!
A brother shared with me how a sister accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
That brother and a few others met and prayed at a particular place regularly. Whenever they met, they used to read a Bible passage and meditate on it. A sister who came there used to bring an edition of the Bible which was different. She was told to bring the Bible used by others. But she continued to use her Bible.
The Lord graciously enabled the sister to conceive. Many prayed for that sister. This brother whenever he went to her house used to pray for the Lord to grant her safe delivery. He used to counsel and encourage her whenever she was confronted with problems or fear. He used to cite the verse Psalm 29:9, “The voice of the LORD makes the deer give birth. . . .” He encouraged her to use this verse in prayer.
This verse gave her hope. The faith in her that the Lord would bless her with a child began to multiply. She opened her Bible to look for that verse, but she was shocked to find that it was not there. She regretted that the verse that could heal her from her weakness was not found in the Bible that she used. From that she gave up using that Bible and started using the Bible used by all the others. The Lord blessed her and her child as she believed in that verse.
Dear Brother/ Sister, the verses of the Bible are life and spirit. Never do the verses cease. It is the sword of the Spirit with which we can have victory over the devil. Let us devote ourselves not only to read and meditate on these verses but also to submit ourselves to obey them.
May the Lord bless you!
