“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
We know that all Scripture speaks of Christ (John 5:39). Here we hear that all Scripture is profitable. Those who tell you Scripture is useless defy God. Is this not what Scripture is about? Does it not teach us truth? Do not listen to those who hate the Lord, but to the Word which is from the Lord. By being a diligent student of the word, you will learn and be prepared for the good work the Lord intends in your life.
Lord, help me to profit by applying these principles to my life. You have guided me in truth, now lead me in action. You know where I need to implement these things in my life. You even know where things are not as they should be. In all things, complete me for Your purpose so that I would do Your will on earth as it is done in heaven. Put my heart and mind where it needs to be for these things to happen.
Lord Jesus, send Your Spirit into my heart and search me. Where I am deficient in Your Word, fill me. Where I need a lesson applied, remind me of what You have said. Where I need to act, send me so that I may do what is pleasing in the Father’s sight. You are the author of my faith. Write Your word upon my heart in order that I would profit by Your Word, a profit which is Yours, in my doing what is pleasing to You. Amen.
