I can remember in my very early Bible college days, how that a love for the Word of God begin to develop within my own life. I had one particular instructor, Kelsey Griffin, who really turned me on to the power of the Word of God.

I can remember sitting up night and night and poring over Scripture and cross-referencing different areas in Scripture with a Dugan Bible that I had purchased from Bro. Griffin for $20. Over the years, it has been marked up and has become a very valuable treasure to me.

But there is one instance that I can remember quite well in my junior year that happened to me. I do not classify it as a vision or a dream but I certainly do feel as if the Lord has used this over the years to help me. Generally, I would always try to go to bed around 1 A.M. and when I finished studying for the night, I would leave that Bible open on my desk. Late one night, went back into the kitchen, and I just looked over in the direction of my desk.

It appeared to me as if a light flicker, just a little spark of fire, begin to dance on the open pages of that Dugan Bible. The fire grew until, as it gained momentum, the whole room began to be filled with a powerful light. It grew and grew until darkness was absolutely overcome.

I still hold that thought in my life. I still understand the incredible power of God’s Word. I still believe that there are things in His Word that will come to pass in the course of time if we can pursue them with an intensity that is unparalleled to any other pursuit in our lives.
