I never had a chance to read the bible completely in all my growing up years. However I attended a retreat and Fr Rijo mentioned that I should read the bible for minimum 30 minutes a day before I even start the day. From the next day I started and was happy to say that I got the grace to complete reading the Bible within 73 days. I then started reading it again and again and have managed to read it 3 times. I praise Lord for giving me this patience and focus and encourage everyone to start doing the same. Once the word of god reaches us, it does amazing things in our life.
I would like to share one of God's promises becoming true in my life - a miracle that has recently crossed my life that set me into a deeper understanding for the word of God .Isaiah 45.2 and 3 - I myself will prepare your way leveling mountains and hills .I will break down bronze gates and smash their iron bars .I will give you treasures from dark secret places ,then you will know that the Lord God of Israel has called you by name. This is an excellent promise that changed and that is still changing my life . It's a 360 degree turn where God's promise is really working lots of miracles in my life. I am thanking our Lord Almighty and thanks to Br. Jomon too for sharing with me this word of God .A priest and a nun , both my friends did tell me the power of the above verse , yet I never bothered to pray , but Br. Jomon did insist on claiming this word of God and I started claiming and praying this verse . I had exams after exams and a hectic life where I used to attend Holy Mass and the rosary everyday but never claimed the word of God. There were numerous obstacles that were not being leveled. Since I never had time to study for my IELTS academic exam due to other medical exams , I kept claiming this word of GOD during my IELTS academic exam . It was a total submission and believe it or not , with only 10 hours of preparation, I had got the top score that further paved entry to other exams and the mountains were levelled by the Almighty God , the God of Abraham , Issac and Jacob . This word of God is still working miracles in my life and it's a wonderful joy to share it and start claiming with immense transformations - both spiritual and worldly working in my life and I promise you it can work in your life tooThank you Jesus Praise you Jesus
