These things that were written in the Scriptures so long ago are to teach us . . . — Romans 15:4 (TLB)
READ: Topic: The Beginning of Wisdom [Billy Graham Devotional 14 August 2019]
In the beauty and abundance around us we see the magnitude of God’s power and the infinite detail of His planning; but nature tells us nothing of God’s love or God’s grace. Conscience tells us in our innermost being of the presence of God and of the moral difference between good and evil; but this is a fragmentary message, in no way as distinct and comprehensive as the lessons of the Bible. It is only in its pages that we find the clear and unmistakable message upon which all true Christianity is based.
Prayer for the day:
As I read Your Word, almighty God, clear my mind of needless thoughts, so that I may be aware of Your message for me this day.
