Your Word for 21 June 2024

Isaiah 12:2a
‘Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.’

2 Timothy 3:14-15 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

From this scripture reference we can see that the influence of these two ladies began when Timothy was very young. It speaks about the fact that from infancy he knew the scriptures. Perhaps they had instilled it in him even during pregnancy.
Sometimes we think we will wait to influence people for the right time or the perfect moment. Don’t waste one moment of time, start early and influence others. The truth is that others are learning from our lives from the moment we come into contact with them. When it comes to making a difference in the lives of others, never say, “Come back at a more convenient season”. “Behold, now is the accepted time!”
Paul goes on and reminds Timothy why he can have confidence in the influence he received: ‘because you know those from whom you learned it’! These women’s lives were reason enough to believe in the message they had imparted. If our lives are a living testimony, then others will be able to have confidence also.
