I watched the TV series "I Dream of
Jeannie" when I was a kid. I remember on one episode, Tony’s friend Roger
wanted Jeannie to do her genie magic and produce a copy of a current newspaper.
Aiming to please, she said she would, but she needed to know the day's date.
Roger told her the date and with that, she blinked her eyes and a paper
magically appeared. Roger turned to the sports page and started reading.
He soon realized he had given Jeannie
tomorrow's date, and what he was looking at were the results of that evening's
races at the dog track, before they had even been run. Roger quickly made his
way to the track and placed bets on dogs he knew were going to win. A big pay
out was guaranteed.
Of course, the TV show was fictitious, but the
principle still holds true in real life.
When we know something for a fact in advance,
we act with greater assurance and confidence. If we believe the Bible is the
true inspired Word of God, then we believe all that it contains is true.
John 14:1-3 New International
“Do not let your hearts be
troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many
rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to
prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a
place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be
where I am."
As Christians, because of Jesus, we know that
before it even happens, the last headline that will ever be written will simply
read, “GOD WINS.” Do you know someone that needs to hear that good news? Why not make the time today to go and
share with them the greatest news they will ever hear.
