“The entrance of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple” (Psalm 119:130).
The Scripture has power in it. It is with Spirit and life. The power in the Scripture gives understanding to the simple. David says, “The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple” (Psalms 19:7).
When William the king who was ruling England at that time died, the lords in the palace were in search of a young girl. But, being unaware of all these things, the girl was sleeping in her room. When people woke her up and told her that she was the future queen of the country, she immediately knelt down.
She looked up to Heavenly Father and earnestly prayed, “Lord, these people are placing such a big responsibility on me. But I do not have the required wisdom, knowledge and power for this. You only have to guide me.” This prayer of the girl brought astonishment among the lords standing around her.
That girl was none but Queen Victoria. Though she was too young by age, she governed the nation very efficiently. She turned the England nation into a big British Monarch. In no other king’s regime, England experienced such a great advancement as it was during the governance of Queen Victoria. The kingdom expanded so vastly that it was said: “There is no sunset for the British Kingdom.”
The main reason for the greatness of that Queen Victoria was her prayer, reading of Scripture, divine fear and her affection towards God. Once, when Queen Victoria was on a visit to some other country the prince of that nation asked her "Honourable queen, may I know the reason for the powerful stature and pride nature of England?" Immediately, the queen held the Bible aloft and said, "The Bible alone is the reason for the greatness of England."
Whichever nation gives importance to the Scripture, God exalts it. Whichever man gives importance to the Scripture, he will be blessed immensely. David stood as a model in reading and loving the Scripture. That is the reason for him to become the greatest and special personality among all other kings who ruled Israel.
Dear children of God, the first thing over which you have to show importance after waking up is the Scripture. If you carry the Bible, it will definitely carry you. All the promises in the Scripture will fulfil in you as yes and in Him Amen. "......for He who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23).
To meditate: “....our word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105).
