Early in my life I had some doubts about whether or not the Bible was really God’s Word. But one night in 1949 I knelt before a stump in the woods of Forest Home, California, opened my Bible and said, “O God, there are many things in this Book I do not understand. But by faith I accept it—from Genesis to Revelation—as Your Word.”
By God’s grace that settled the issue for me once and for all. From that moment on I have never had a single doubt that the Bible is God’s Word. When I quote Scripture, I know I am quoting the very Word of God.
This confidence in God’s Word not only gives authority to one’s ministry; it provides a solid foundation for one’s life. We who trust in God’s word aren’t living according to what someone says about the Bible, or on some human philosophy. We are basing our faith, our ministry, even our life itself on God’s unchanging truth as it is presented in His unchanging Word. Is God’s Word the foundation of your life?
from “Wisdom for Each Day” by Billy Graham
