Here are my reflections and comments from today’s scripture from Our Daily Inspirations App.
My brothers and sisters in Christ, before I read or comment on God’s word, I pray that He prepares my heart to receive his guidance and ask that He uses me as his vessel to comment on His word. If you want to leave comments or feedback, you can email email@example.com. The Bible is very relevant my life because the Holy Word is inspired by God. God bless you.
The scripture is from 2 Timoth 3:16: “Every scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness.”
The devotion is titled A Map for the Crossroads by Margaret Michel. The author starts by saying during her life she faced many crossroads throughout her life. One time she was given a choice of cheating or losing favor with management at a good job. She said God proved that obeying Him was the “profitable” choice. It turns out that upper management was watching. In the end she was promoted, and her immediate supervisor was demoted and transferred to an obscure and menial task and forced into early retirement. Just like Paul’s letter to Timothy pointed him to every writing in the Bible as having God as its direct Source, regardless of the writer God chose to inspire, Divine love, wisdom, and knowledge are infused into every passage. She says that we too, have access to countless counsel by reading and applying Scripture at every crossroad in our lives.
Reflections, Questions, and Challenges for Us: How does it make you feel to know that God has poured His all-knowing and all-powerful providence in the Bible for your ready access?
Here is my response, yours may be different: This makes me feel secure that God has my back. I faced a situation very similar to Her’s. I was instructed by the company’s owner to do something that was totally wrong. I prayed and followed God’s instruction. Soon after, the company’s credit rating went up and the company’s venders were back with us.
A Personal Prayer for us: Gracious God, thank You that every word for Yours is intended to be meaningful for us, designed to instruct us in the right ways that we crave. In Christ’s dear name, we pray, Amen.
