Saturday's Dose - July 28th 2012

The Impact of God's Word

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path" - (Psalm 119:105, NIV).

Abraham Lincoln said, "I recognize the sublime truth announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blest whose God is the Lord."

John Marshall, chief justice of the Supreme Court, said of George Washington, "He was a sincere believer in the Christian faith, a truly devout man."

When Washington was close to death he asked those with him to leave the room so he could spend time alone with God. Later when his secretary, Tobias Lear, returned, Washington said, "'Tis well." He then closed his eyes and prayed, "Father of mercies, take me to Thyself." That was his last prayer.

And former president John Quincy Adams is reported to have said, "I have for many years made it a practice to read through the Bible once a year. My custom is to read four or five chapters every morning immediately after rising from my bed. It employs about an hour of my time, and seems to me the most suitable manner for beginning the day. In what light soever we regard the Bible, whether with reference to revelation, to history, or to mortality, it is an invaluable and inexhaustible mine of knowledge and Virtue."

Prayer: "Almighty God, again this day I commit and trust my life to you and that of (name your loved one). Please help me/us to trust in your Word and live by its principles today and every day. Thank you
for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you all.
