THURSDAY, DECEMBER 2
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NLT)
WONDERFUL COUNSELOR: HE KNOWS BEST – PART 2
Several prominent literary figures were invited to an open forum where someone interviewed them and asked them questions. One question that came up was this: “If you were stranded on a desert isle, and you could only have one book, which book would you bring with you?” The first person said without hesitating, “The complete works of William Shakespeare.” The next said, “I would bring the Bible with me.” They turned to the last writer and said, “How about you? What book would you bring with you to a desert isle?” He responded, “Thomas’ Guide to Practical Ship Building.”
We were reminded in the sermon that God has given us His Word to guide us through life and into eternity. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 tells us the Bible corrects us, teaches us, prepares and and equips us to do every good work God has for us. Mike shared the three primary ways God guides us is through Scripture, through His Spirit and through His servants.
Which of the three ways Mike mentioned do you most often sense God guiding you? How can you grow in sensing God’s leadership in the area that is most difficult for you?
Praise God for the perfection and helpfulness found in His Word. Thank God for His Holy Spirit and for the servants He has placed in your life to help guide you.
