Topic: Look Deeply [Billy Graham Devotional 16 June 2020]
Open my eyes to see wonderful things in your Word. — Psalm 119:18 (TLB)
Some, who doubt that the Bible is the true Word of God, doubt it because they are unwilling to ascribe to God anything they cannot themselves achieve. If you have any uncertainty about the inspiration of the Bible, go back and look at it again. Look at it in the light of a person who has been staring at a mud puddle all his life, and who is confronted for the first time by a view of the ocean!
Perhaps you are only now catching your first glimpse of God’s unlimited power. Perhaps you are only now beginning to understand Him for what He actually is. For if God is the Spirit that Jesus declares Him to be, there is no problem of providence, there is no problem of His sovereignty in the affairs of men, there is no problem of His inspiration of the men who wrote the Bible. Everything fits into place, once you understand who and what God really is.
Prayer for the day:
My Father and my God, as I read the Scriptures each day, You open my eyes to more of the glories of Your wondrous love.
