This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word.

The problem was their spiritual perception, not a lack of light. They didn’t need a sign, they needed to believe! It was all about _______________________ in faith! It still is!
