IT’S ALL IN THE WORD
IT’S ALL IN THE WORD
Read: 2 Timothy 3:10-16
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105)
2 Timothy 3:16 says that “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. What this implies is that in the word of God, you can find solutions, insights, ideas, and answers for anything you are looking for.
In the UCB devotional, the author in explaining how the world has been blessed by God given ideas, gave the example of how a Scottish doctor, James Young Simpson introduced what he called “artificial sleep” because of reading Genesis 2:21 which says that “and the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam. His experiment led to the use of anesthesia for surgical operations.
Similarly, it has been suggested by bible scholars that the Wright brothers got the inspiration to make humans fly in airplanes after they read Isaiah 40:31 which. says that “…they shall mount up with wings like eagles”.
Psalm 119:105 says “your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path”. Do you need a great idea that will impact humanity? Search the scriptures. And as you do, ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten your understanding and reveal the mysteries in God’s word.
IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye.
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?
He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."
Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.
