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.
