That It May Be Well With Thee
That powerful phrase and others with the same meaning appear many times in the Bible as the result of obeying the Lord. They have become favorites of mine. Following is just one of them. That it may be well with you spiritually and eternally is far better than that it may be well with you physically and temporarily.
Deuteronomy 5:33 Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.
Perseverance in prayer and in studying the Bible will benefit a believer in countless ways. Notice that the Bible does not say please pray or please study. These are not mere suggestions. And even if they were, God*s slightest wishes should be our commands.
