2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
So often we look for advise from our friends or family, when everything we need to guide and direct us thru this life can be found in God’s word. I love that the Lord knew how badly we would need His leading and guidance, that He so perfectly spoke and equipped each author to pen His words. The scriptures are intended to be God’s breathe into your life. They are what give us life. In them we find comfort, strength, healing, discipline, and our daily bread to sustain us and help us grow while here on this earth.
One of the many gracious things about our Lord is that His word is used to correct our errored behavior. And when it comes to being corrected, I would choose to be corrected a hundred times over by the Lord than be corrected by someone else. He does it in a loving and gentle way yet speaks to us exactly what we need to hear. In correcting us, He is molding us to be more like Him. When He corrects our harsh behavior, our sour attitudes, and our bad habits, He is preparing us and shaping us for to His work and equipping us for good things.
His word gives us the instructions on how to live a life that is pleasing to Christ in which He clothes us with His righteousness! We often times complicate something that is so simple. Are you unsure of what you are hearing is truth, open God’s word. Are you seeking direction for some big decisions you have coming up? Open His word and let His will be revealed to your heart! Are you facing something that seems impossible? Or feel inadequate for a role that you have been placed in? Be encouraged by His word, He wants to perfectly equip you for every good work!
Let God’s word satisfy your daily needs. May He be the one you turn to in time of need.
