2 Timothy 3:17 (ESV)
16 … that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
It’s Scripture, God’s very breath, that helps us stay on the straight-and-narrow.
Guiding us like ‘a lamp to [our] feet
and a light to [our] path’ (Psalms 119:105).
Sometimes the instructions and commands are explicit, specific.
Other times it’s necessary to understand God’s will, His very nature, in order to find our way.
Like a cryptic crossword His purpose may not always be clear at first. It takes time and effort and persistence to come to a greater (if not complete) understanding of His intent.
But it’s well worth the effort. And His gentle prods and corrections are invaluable.
How else are we to do good work if we lack His guidance? And not just some but every good work.
prayer : thank you LORD for teaching, reproofing, correcting and training me
action : help me to do good works
