Upon being informed that every room in the building had been taken, he was naturally quite perturbed, until a portly gentleman standing nearby kindly offered to share his room with him.
The offer was thankfully accepted.
Upon retiring, the portly man knelt and prayed, tenderly mentioning his guest for the night in his petition.
In the morning his host informed him that it was his custom to read a portion of the Word of God and pray before taking up the responsibilities of the day.
The effect upon the man was moving; a strange feeling came over him; something had been working in his heart all the night.
When gently pressed by this stranger to accept the Lord Jesus as his personal Savior, his resistance went down in a heap. A soul had been won for Christ!
But who is this humble ambassador of Christ, who so strikingly resembles a member of President Wilson's cabinet?
When business cards were exchanged before parting, to the guest's amazement he read, "William Jennings Bryan, Secretary of State."
You see, by starting your day with God's Word through memorization and meditation, you're inviting amazing and miraculous things to happen around you.
With scripture memorization and meditation, you're basically saying to God..."Oh Lord, please take control of my day today!"
