Orville Nave was born on this day in 1841. After becoming a chaplain in the United States Army, he learned that many officers believed that chaplains often were appointed because of their political connections. There also was a widespread belief that the chaplains were largely ineffective. In response, Nave organized the United Christian Commission, a group of interdenominational church representatives committed to addressing this situation.

While serving as a chaplain, Nave also became concerned about the need to help soldiers understand more about the Bible and apply its principles in their daily lives. So he began working on a topical Bible, a project that took 14 years. When completed, Nave’s Topical Bible included approximately 20,000 individual topics and subtopics, as well as 100,000 Scripture references.

In his preface, Nave wrote that his topical Bible was the result of fourteen years of delightful and untiring study of the Word of God. This resource opened up God’s Word in a new way to many, both in the military and in civilian life. It still is read and used by thousands of people every week.

In your life, remember that God’s Word is filled with power. It deals with every possible subject, including finances and relationships& attitudes and actions& thoughts and emotions.

Don’t allow the devil to steal the victory God has prepared for you. Fill your mind and heart with the Word of God. Confess it, and put it into action. It will change every part of your life.
