I like to read all kinds of books, but the Bible is unlike any other book in the world!
It claims to be an accurate record of the words of God Himself. Internal and external evidence substantiates this claim but there is an intrinsic convicting power that will move anyone who reads it with a good and honest heart to a sure and certain faith.
Many have never really given the book a fair and thorough reading.
Yes, God encourages us to come to Him for all our needs. He promises to listen to us when we ask and He promises to answer our requests. He gives generously and will never scold us for asking. You can always count on Him for every good and perfect gift.
Read it for yourself in the Bible: Matthew 7:7-11; John 14:13; Hebrews 4:14-16; James 1:2-5, 16-17; 5:16-18; 1 John 5:14-15.
Some of you may be wondering, “Why, then, do I not see this in my life? Where are God’s blessings?” The problem is never with God. It is with us. Open your heart to this teaching from James 1:5-8.
“Would you be free from the burden of sin? There’s power in the blood!”
In our bodies there is life-giving power in the blood. To our souls there is life and hope only in the blood of Jesus Christ.
There is cleansing, convicting, drawing power in the blood!
