I’m sure there have been many times when angels have helped me through a difficult or impossible situation, and I didn’t even realize it, but there have been several times when I was absolutely sure of angelic intervention. One such time happened many years ago when my wife, Marge, and I were on our way back home to Beaver Bay on the North Shore.
Many people know familiar passages of Scripture by memory such as John 3:16 or Psalm 23. But what are some specific ways that we can benefit from memorizing God’s Word? Several different thoughts came to mind when I was thinking about this subject.
No day is dull when the focus is on Him who opens our understanding through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. No day is dreary when believers read from that great Book or hear the Word when they gather together. No day is ordinary when we are in Christ.

It is a widely held misconception that anyone who questions whether he or she is saved is challenging the integrity of God’s Word.
It is my desire that this testimony will reveal the root of all problems in life and that it will point people to the solution of those problems.
