Let The Record Show…

Maybe this never happens to you, but sometimes while I’m reading my Bible my mind drifts and I begin to think about something besides what I’m reading.

Some times I can’t get the last episode of some TV show out of my head.  Sometimes it’s something going on at work.  Tonight it was a question I had for the Lord.  I needed an answer and it was bothering me that I didn’t have one.

So I’m kind of half-reading and praying at the same time, asking God to reveal to me the answer to the question I’m needing an answer to.  Then, I look at the next paragraph in my Bible, and there in the words of the text is the exact answer to the question I was asking the Lord just seconds earlier.

You know how Paul says, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work,” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)?

Yeah…he wasn’t kidding.

    You know. That’s true.

    And although you imply this is the case, did you get your answer?

    I did get my answer. My answer sort of has to do with a situation that involves more people than just me, so I can be too specific…but I did find it. How are you J?
