Hold onto God's Word

Daily Thought

Your Word for 19 April 2024

Hebrews 4:16
‘So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.’

Paul gives Timothy some sound advice. He encourages him to hold onto what he was taught and what he has learnt in particular to God’s words. The Word of God has benefit for everyone, throughout the length of life.

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. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

He reminds him about the ‘Holy Scriptures’ and then goes on to remind Timothy that all Scripture is God-breathed. He was reminding him that God’s word could be depended on, that it was reliable and trustworthy.
Never let it be said from your mouth that; ‘it doesn’t work for me!’ Rather let those around you know that you have full and complete confidence in God even if things don’t look ideal at that moment.
As a result of these two ladies and their influence on this young man’s life, his life was something that people noticed and as a result he could speak to them with authority and influence them in turn. It opened the door for him to have influence.

Acts 16:1-2 Paul came to Derbe and then to Lystra, where a disciple named Timothy lived, whose mother was Jewish and a believer but whose father was a Greek. The believers at Lystra and Iconium spoke well of him.

“A life is not significant except in the impact it has on other lives” Jackie Robinson
We must choose to live the kind of life that impacts others. Look for somebody you can mentor. Be a person of impact. Go out of your way to volunteer and get involved and take responsibility for helping others. Teach where you can and be an authentic role model. Remember your life is a book that others are reading. Make your life count by making a difference.
