A very gloomy mood often prevailed in a house in...

The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of coins of gold or silver. … I rejoice at your word as one who finds great treasure.
Psalm 119:72.162

A very gloomy mood often prevailed in a house in the country. Marital quarrels hardly ever ceased; the children became accustomed to it. One day a Christian from the village entered the house only to witness one such argument..

The father apologised immediately: “We are hard up, you see. That is our problem. Every expenditure leads to a quarrel.”

The visitor looked round and discovered a large Bible on a shelf. He then said amicably but emphatically: “Dear friends, you own a treasure. You could be the happiest family in the village.” Having expressed these mysterious words, he took his leave and left the amazed couple. They wondered what he had meant. The visitor had made a serious impression. They searched the house again and again but could find no treasure. They eventually came to the conclusion that he had been joking.

One day, however, the housewife noticed the Bible. Could that be “the treasure”? Knowing the visitor, she could well believe it. She wiped the dust off and opened the book after years of neglect. Her glance soon fell on a sentence that her mother had often quoted: “The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of coins of gold or silver.” Her curiosity made her start reading.

When her husband arrived home, she told him: “I have found the treasure. It’s here in this book. Let’s read it from now on.” They did so with resulting blessing for the whole family.

Today’s reading: 2 Chronicles 9:1-12 · Revelation 1:1-11

The presence of the supernatural power of God in a church can take that church beyond limits.
It can also uproot the presence of evil in the midst of Gods children. In Acts 5, a couple were uprooted through this. If we are going to sanitise the church, we need the Holy Spirit. Just as we need Him to heal, save...More

Every blessing worth its salt requires a key without which the seeker cannot access it. While some people have never experienced open doors, others once did, but the doors hitherto opened to them have been shut. In 1 Samuel 16:14, the door which was once opened to Saul was shut. That good door which opened to...More

As a born-again Christian, you need to understand and live by the nature of the new creature that you are. This is the key to your victory in this world. One character of your new nature is revealed in Galatians 5:25:
“And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections...More

No tree can grow except on the root from which it sprang. In the gospels, we see the personal life of our Lord laid bare for us. He spoke frequently of His relationship with the Father, of the motives guiding Him, and His consciousness of the power of the Spirit at work in Him. Jesus, as man, subordinated Himself and...More
