Your Training Manual

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. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Let me ask some questions. Wouldn’t it be great if you had a handheld device that could show you where you are in life right now? Would you like to know where your life is headed? Wouldn't it be wonderful to have something (like a thermometer) to find out if your spiritual temperature is at the right level? What if the device could show how you are thinking and reveal if your thinking is correct? Wouldn’t it be great if there was something that you could use like that for your life? Well, there is. It is called the Bible!

The training manual for your life should be the Word of God. The Bible will teach you how to think, how to live, and what your purpose is. For many of us, we have issues with all three of those things. We are not thinking correctly, we are not living correctly, and we are not living with a purpose. We are just living for the here and now, rather than making a difference for the Kingdom of God, now and for eternity.

Are you reading your training manual? Are you reading the Word of God? Do you know what God wants for you? Do you make decisions based on what the Word of God says? When you have doubts about the right decision to make, do you go to the Word to direct you, or do you just play it by ear?

Many of us think we are logical and thoughtful. We think we live with a plan. In reality, many of us are flying by the seat of our pants, and we are not rooted in the Word of God. Everything, every decision that you make, every major choice that you make in your life, and every stance you take should be rooted in the Word of God. Don’t miss out on reading your training manual. Study God’s Word every single day so you will know how to live with a heavenly purpose.
