2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Today, as you drink your cup of joe, I want you to let this sink in to your heart and spirit. God sent His Word, the Bible says, and that Word brought healing. It restored relationships. It won battles. It calmed minds that could not find peace. His Word was preserved and protected for us so that we could be trained in righteousness: that is to make the right choices at the right time for the right reasons and produce the right results. And according to verse 17, so that we might be "thoroughly equipped" for EVERY good work.
I will be the first to admit that I have gotten myself into things that I did not feel I was ready to do. If I did not talk myself out of them altogether, I just kept walking hesitantly forward. Each and every time that I entered something that God set up for me that I felt was "over my head", He allowed me to rise to the occasion and be a blessing...in spite of myself! I have learned that He has given me all of the tools necessary to do ALL that He has called me to do. It's what it means to be "thoroughly equipped".
So today, hear me tell you that every good work God moves you towards, you already have inside of you His Word and that means that you not only are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, it means you too are thoroughly equipped to do the task at hand. So stop hesitating...start walking and see the deliverance and the power of God!
