Thoroughly Equipped

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, to correction, for instruction in righteousness,

that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”Β  2 Timothy 3:16-17

 

The image of a Swiss Army knife comes to mind. πŸ™‚

Lord, thank You for Your Word that equips us for anythingΒ  and everything.Β  And here’s a simple poem . . .

All scripture is for us
to teach and correct

guiding our thoughts
helping our progress

towards being completely
and thoroughly prepared

for doing His good
any time, any where.

  15. As I so often say, we have all the resources of heaven at our disposal. God has completely equipped us with EVERYTHING we need to live victorious lives for Him – but it is OUR responsibility to take and use those resources.

    I like to think of 2 Timothy 3:16 as profitable for showing us –
    doctrine – what IS right
    reproof – what is NOT right
    correction – how to GET right
    instruction – how to STAY right

    God is so thorough that we have no excuse.
    What an amazing God!

  16. Oh WOWSERS, mentor Angela! Thank you for that awesome lesson from 2 Timothy! I’m keeping that one and hiding it in my heart! God bless you, our lady of no excuses! πŸ™‚ love and prayers!

    The Swiss army knife and the power of the word goes nicely with the armor we are instructed to wear. πŸ™‚

    Love,
    Theresa

  18. Thank you for stretching to “go there” with me! haha! God bless you as you allow Him to work through you for good, in so many places and ways! love you!

  19. Encouraging Debbie,

    Yes, we are thoroughly furnished with the Word of God! I really liked mentor Angela’s breakdown of 2 Timothy 3:16! Definitely one to sink one’s teeth into!

    (The most debilitating symptoms of the last flare-up, from just about two weeks ago, are finally starting to dissipate. I was thankful to God that I was able to post, and “fellowship” during the last worship session. It was an extraordinary struggle, but God is good! That’s why you haven’t seen me around blog land very much! :-)) Love and prayers!

    Paulette πŸ™‚

  20. I love thinking about what all His Word is and does for us! πŸ™‚ And I know what you mean about Angela’s comment . .. love that too! πŸ™‚
