Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:31
The Pilgrims had a rough voyage aboard the Mayflower, but they read their Bible every day. Just when things seemed hopeless, they came upon Psalm 107:23-30: “Those who go down to the sea in ships…. Are at their wits’ end. Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm…. Then they are glad…. So He guides them to their desired haven.”
We have many storms in life; but when we’re reading our Bible every day, the Lord has Scripture for us. The truth of God’s Word offers hope for each day.
Sometimes it’s helpful to have a Bible with wide margins so we can jot down the date and occasion when a particular verse speaks to us. There’s never a day when Scripture is silent, and we’ll never have a problem for which there isn’t a verse to help. Reading devotional books is good, but remember—it’s only a supplement to the actual reading of God’s Word.
The Lord has a verse for you today. Don’t miss it!
Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face. Ronald Reagan
