Isaiah 55:11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
In a previous newsletter, we told the story of a young lady at one of our training conferences who I gave a Bible to. She became a believer by reading the Word.
About a month later she suddenly died on the trail to another village. Her pastors ran hours to her to pray for her and she was raised from the dead. Many people on the trail became believers as did others in her village. But her father, being a strong Buddhist, did not.
In the fall of the year, this fathers’ buffalo stopped giving milk and its baby calf was dying. He asked his daughter, who read her Bible all the time now, to tie the Bible between the horns of the buffalo in the hopes that the buffalo would start giving milk again. The daughter said she would do better than that. She laid hands on the buffalo and prayed for it. The buffalo started giving milk again and the calf became very healthy!
When the father saw with his own eyes the miracle, he believed in Jesus. He saw that praying to the God of the Bible produced real results. He saw that the words of the Bible carry a real message of love and healing.
All of his prayers to his god went unanswered. All of his words produced nothing. He did not believe when his daughter was raised from the dead. But he did believe when he saw the power in the Word.
God uses different means to draw people to Him. And since He knows the hearts of man, He knows how They CAN be reached!! AMEN!
