Week #35 2 Timothy 3:16-17

2 Timothy 3:16-172 Timothy 3:16-17
English: World English Bible - WEB

16 Every writing inspired by God literally, God-breathed is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction which is in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

“All scripture is God-breathed and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

 The time we spend digging into the word of God effects our preparedness level for the good works the Lord has prepared for us.   According to 2 Timothy 3:16-172 Timothy 3:16-17

our level of readiness is directly related to our interaction with scripture. Why is scripture so directly tied to our ability to live out God’s plan for us? The word of God is the main source for the Lord to communicate with his people.

Therefore it is our direct connection with the Lord. When we are intentionally reading and meditating on scripture we will learn and grow in righteousness. I know there have been many times when I have been reading the word and a section of verses will strike deep emotions in my heart and bring clarity to an area of my life that is causing challenges in my life. Maybe you can relate?

Remembering the way the Lord teaches me through his word for the purpose of drawing me close to him and equipping me for the plans he has for me motivates me to be intentional about daily spending time with him in his word.

To be ready for the work of the Lord calls us to be intentional about our training in righteousness. We must remember the wisdom of this world is but foolishness compared to the wisdom of the King of Kings.

Let’s be intentional about being ready!

Week #34 Joshua 1:7

Joshua 1:7Joshua 1:7
English: World English Bible - WEB

7 Only be strong and very courageous, to observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded you: don’t turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go.

“Be strong and very courageous.  Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; Do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.”

I wonder, am I the only one who has said this “well that didn’t work out like I planned it.”  How often has that been the case in life for you?   Personally, it’s true more often than I like to admit.  The best failures are the ones that I was honest with myself and chose to learn from.  Maybe you can relate.

Usually my disappointing outcomes have one of these common factors: a lack of focus, not being diligent along the way, or not continuing in strength and courage.  Joshua 1:7Joshua 1:7

shares the Lord’s advice to Joshua for success as he started his leadership journey of the Israelites.

~Be Strong

~Be Courageous

~Be Careful to Obey

~Do Not Turn to the Right or the Left

What will happen if we follow the advise of the Lord today?  I think like Joshua we too will experience greater success through a strong and courageous relationship with the Lord.  Then He will daily help us to be careful as we follow His commands(Love the Lord above all and love others as yourself.  Matthew 32:36-40Matthew 32:36-40

)  Then we will be prepared in strength and courage we will remain focused in challenges and not turn to the left or right.

Let’s choose today to apply the Lord’s advice:

Be Strong~  Be Courageous ~ Be Careful ~ Be Focused

In the Lord ~ For the Lord ~ Through the Lord

 

Be Alert~ Stay Strong~ Pray Always

I’m left with a question for our hearts~ How would the Lord describe my relationship with him?

I believe the honest answer reveals my rate of growth in eternal knowledge and my extent of foolish living in a casual relationship with the Lord.

My desire is to continually live in reverent relationship with the Lord.  One that is characterized by respectful fear that honors His position, His presence, His promises and His priorities.

 

Position~ Above all thing: The King of Kings

Power~ All powerful

Presence~ In heaven & In His children

Promises~ To love, to forgive, to be with, and to provide for His Children

Priorities~ His children are to love Him above all else-obey His commands- & love others as themselves

How does the Lord describe our relationship with Him………….. Committed ~  Casual  ~ Consequential   ?????

Committed:  continual purposeful growth in relationship and eternal knowledge

Casual:  occasional unintentional growth in relationship and knowledge of God

Consequential:   random unsustained grow in relationship and knowledge of God

Will we be purposeful in our relationship with the Lord and grow in the knowledge and experience of His position, power, presence, promises, and priorities for us His children?

Live out your purpose child of the King of Kings!!!

Week #32 Psalm 32:11

Psalm 32:11Psalm 32:11
English: World English Bible - WEB

11 Be glad in Yahweh, and rejoice, you righteous! Shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart!

WP-Bible plugin

“Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!”

When is the last time you purposed to rejoice and sing to the Lord?  I hope it was recently.  If not, you might consider how you will choose to make rejoicing more regular in your life.

Rejoicing and singing is an outward expression of thankfulness ~ to be glad.  Are we thankful?  Does the Lord know we are thankful?

Today I will choose to rejoice in the little things knowing that my God will open my eyes to sing to him for the extravagant things He has done, He is doing, and He is yet to do!

 

Will you choose to rejoice with me?

 

Be Alert~ Stay Strong~ Pray Always
