What Are The Odds?

Twenty three years ago I delivered a newborn baby that had to stay in the intensive care unit for a month and a half. He nearly died after going into shock.  The doctors discovered he had an adrenal condition.  But with the modern miracle of steroids he stays healthy today.

While in the hospital I would read Psalms to him to strengthen the fighting spirit within him. My favorite verse to speak was Psalm 118:17.  It says he wouldn’t die but live!

Wow! What are the odds? There are 31,102 verses in the Bible. What are the chances in a 365 day year that the verse I spoke over my son’s life would show up today?

Today he runs the Route 66 Marathon and I read that verse from my One Year Bible daily reading!  This is his third time to run it!

God is beyond amazing! He has great things, bigger than a marathon in store for my son (and his siblings!) Jesus resides over his life. The name of Jesus is more powerful than any condition my son deals with. God hears the sincere daily prayers of my mother’s heart! God will greatly use my son (and his brothers and sister) to declare how awesome and majestic He is!

Psalm 118:

14 The Lord is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.

15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.

16 The right hand of the Lord is exalted: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.

17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.
