“Can you imagine what would happen in this world we live in if every woman.... let's say 12 and older.... was given this Bible as a gift? Women are world-changers. Look at Ruth: because she was selfless she gave birth to the lineage of King David. Look at Esther: she saved God's people by being courageous. When King Josiah had questions, who did he go to? Huldah, that's who! I could go on and on. With a Bible in the hands of every woman on this planet, lives would be saved and nations would turn their eyes toward God. How do I know this?”
Understanding the Bible can be challenging at best and discouraging at the worst. It's frustrating when you want to know more about God, be a better person, have a better life, and yet you can't understand the manual. If you feel that way - or know someone that may feel that way - this post is for you!
I believe we all need the anointing of the Holy Spirit. When Christ left this earth and ascended into Heaven He said that He was leaving us a comforter. If Christ left me something, or someone as it were, I'm going to follow that - since my whole life is based on following Him and being as much like Him as humanly possible - by receiving whomever or whatever that thing may be! We know that whom Christ left us was the Holy Spirit (John 14:16-17).
It's as if God wants me to depend on him right now. I mean, it's as if He wants me to stop and depend on Him, trust in Him, right now – before the tears, before the next procedure, before arriving at the hospital, before the anesthesia, before the removal, before the results are relayed to me. And of course He does. His Word tells us that over and over. It's hard to remember, though, when the storm is raging, though. Isn't it?
Stop right now and think: Who hasn't been around? Who do I know is going through something? Who might be hurting?
