Thoroughly Equipped - Tuesday, November 3rd 2015

2 Tim 3:16-17

16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Friend, are you reading your Bible? I hope you are. Especially in these days of disasters, massacres and global tension. God breathed it out, literally. He loves you and wants to help you. His ways and wisdom are in your Bible. It is your manual for life. It directs you in the way you should go and points out where you may be going wrong. It corrects your course and teaches you how to stay on the right path, His path. It equips you for the challenges you face every day and it prepares you for eternity.

God has good plans for your life, to give you a hope and a future! He has written to you words of life. Read them. Do them. Be blessed.

Isaiah 55:11
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Life Lesson: God promises that His word that He sends forth into your life will accomplish the good purposes He intends it for.

Dear God,
Thank you for the Bible. Thank you for the good purposes you are going to use your word to accomplish in my life. I ask you to forgive me for all the times I have looked other places for direction and comfort and help. Please give me a greater desire to read your word and for the ability to understand and apply what you speak to me from it. May I have eyes that see and ears that hear and a heart that is willing and able to understand. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Living to tell what He died to say,
