Have you ever been rocked to sleep by the Word? I have.
A few months ago, I was troubled over some issues that had lingered for a while. I had the urge to read a certain passage from the Bible and the Lord shone His light on some of the verses. I immediately became calm and got rocked to sleep. I remember thinking to the Lord that His Word was just like a lullaby to me that night. It calmed my nerves and sent me to sleep.
Today, I am reminded of a slogan we used at the NCCF* Family House during NYSC*. Papa would say, “Cheer up brethren!” And we would all chant in response, “The Word works.”
The Word surely works.
