This is my comfort in my affliction, for your word has given me life.Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart.
Psalm 119:50; Jeremiah 15:16

After the communists took over power in China a foreign missionary was arrested and kept prisoner for fifteen months. He spent the whole time in solitary confinement, cut off from all his relatives and friends and without any book. Twice a day his meal was handed to him through an opening in the cell door. During the whole of his imprisonment he never saw a human face. He did not even know whether his family knew where he was.

Later he said that he would have gone mad, had he not been able to remember many verses from the Bible that he had learned by heart years before. That alone kept his mind active and balanced. He knew that God had not given him up. What a comfort it was for him to be able to quote verses from the Bible every day! That did him good.

Whoever has a store of words from the Bible in his memory and his heart receives consolation and help even in the most trying circumstances. But it is not only then that God’s Word reveals its effect: it constantly draws our attention to Christ, the Son of God and Redeemer. And it sustains the believer in his fellowship with Christ in good and bad times. It leaves its mark on the way he leads his life and guides him in the decisions made in everyday life. It also has a blessed influence on in the varied daily duties and contacts.

“He who heeds the word wisely will find good, and whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he” (Proverbs 16:20).

Today’s reading: Joshua 10:12-27 · 1 Corinthians 9:1-15
