II 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
The Bible is the precious word of God. It is the word that gives life and hope. I started this daily word of wisdom by the special grace of God four months today. When I first started it was like an uphill task and I was wondering how far I could go before giving up. But thank God that the LORD had been the source of my strength which kept me going without missing a day up till now. To God be the glory. It is true that one can do all things through Christ that strengthens us. I would like to appreciate my sister for encouraging me by reading it daily for her own meditation and also helping me to correct all my errors. It’s been a challenge but I thank God for His word that were written by inspiring men of God to put His words into writing. This has been His pattern as I read through the Bible because His words are very powerful and they are like sword that could be used as a weapon, and they are needed daily for those that know how to apply them. During the encounter of the prophets with God, they always mentioned that the scroll was given to them to eat and after that, they will be asked to write down what they have seen or heard. The Scripture of today is about the profitability of the word of God in every area of life. The Scripture says the word is profitable for doctrine, that is to know about God and His likes and dislikes, and to learn to abide by them. God encouraged Joshua not to allow the book of the law to depart from his mouth because in it he would prosper and have good success. Now that I started writing the daily words of wisdom, I have seen some changes in my life and I am been challenged to abide by either the instruction or the correction that are written therein. So brothers and sisters, the word of God is all that we need to walk with God. I hope you are finding time to make it your priority every day to read the word of God. It has blessed me, and I pray that it will be a source of blessing to you too in Jesus Name.
I will like to share this testimony with you so that you too can be encouraged as it has moved my faith in the word of God a step up. Early in the morning yesterday before going to work, I did my morning devotion by reading Acts of Apostles when Peter and John went to the temple to pray, and there was a lame man at the beautiful gate that begged for money from the apostles and then Peter looked at him and said :silver and gold I do not have but what I have I will give it to you, In the name of Jesus, rise up and walk” He held his hand and the lame man’s leg received strength and started to leap for joy, praising God. Everybody that saw him was amazed at the miracle that God did through the apostles, and nobody could dispute that the man had been lame from birth and used to beg for money at that gate for years, and this miracle of mighty healing happened through the name of Jesus. After reading this episode, song of joy came from me and I started to praise God for this wonderful miracle that God did in the life of this man. Then all of a sudden it dawned on me that the name of Jesus could be applied to my problem that I have been having and the doctor told me that it was because I did a lot of movement around and so I just needed to rest, but yet I was still having pain after resting as much as I could. So I jumped up and claimed that hour as my miracle hour for God to touch me in the name of Jesus. At that very hour, I felt immediately that the pain was gone and joy overflowed my heart and I was very happy that I had received my miracle. I called my sister to share this testimony with her and told her to agree with me that my miracle is permanent. Up till today I am still basking in the love of God with no pain, and I believe that there will never be a repeat of the pain in the name of Jesus. You will agree with me what reading the word of God can do in the life of Christians if they put their mind to it The Scripture that I read that day changed my situation. and it can change yours when you allow the word of God to minister to you.
Indeed all we need has been given to us as written in the scripture of today because the word of God is for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be complete thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Peter 1:2-3 reads, “Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us to glory and virtue” The word is with us and there is nothing that we need that is not found there. If we search the scriptures, we will enjoy the treasure hidden in every word or verse that is written and we will be able to do exploits for God. God bless you as you continue to dwell on the word of God. .
Prayer…..Lord give me grace to continue to read, and meditate on your word so that I can be thoroughly equipped to do the work of God.
