“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” 2 Timothy 2:15, NKJV.
The life we desire to live is found in a deeper relationship with God’s Word. One that goes from mere head knowledge to applying it in our daily lives. The truth of His Word should be our bottom-line that settles every issue in our hearts and minds.
When we do this, we find that we’ll receive these key benefits:
His Word will convert our soul and make us wise (Psalm 19:7)
Enlighten our darkness or ignorance (Psalm 18:28)
Nourish us and help us grow spiritually (1 Peter 2:2)
Guide us through life (Psalm 119:105)
Help purify our hearts (Hebrews 4:12)
Minister life to us and to those around us (John 6:63)
Help us become more like Jesus (2 Corinthians 3:18)
Renew our minds and change our thinking (Romans 12:2)
Teach us how to live in a way that pleases God (2 Timothy 3:16)
Equip us to fulfill God’s purpose for our lives (2 Timothy 3:17)
Prayer: Father God, I thank you for giving me wisdom, knowledge and understanding of your Word. I pray you deepen my relationship with Your Word and cause it to change my life and the lives of those around me. In Jesus name, Amen.
Challenge: In Psalms 119, the writer expresses his deep love for God’s laws. If your love for God’s Word is not where you want it to be, read Psalms 119. It will inspire you to love God’s Word more deeply.
