God helps the helpless, lavishing us with many things that—if used properly—are everything we need. So… wherever I flounder, I can usually point out why!
WAY: God gave one Way to Him: Jesus. The more I know Him, the more I love Him. Indeed, my blessing is integrally tied to my level of devotion.
WORD: The Bible. I’m not out of line in saying a lot of the weakness in the church today stems from pervasive illiteracy. (2 Tim. 3:16)
WARMTH: How much better off I am when I take time to thank God for things like shingles and a furnace!
WINDOWS: We get glimpses into God’s love by observing things around us: a simple act of service, a child’s love for his mother, the loyalty of a dog.
WEAPONS: Truth, righteousness, the gospel, faith, salvation, the Word, and prayer. Take them up, Soldier.
WALLS: Ever “hit a wall”? It was God’s doing, make no mistake. He was changing the status quo.
WAKE-UP CALLS: Ahem. Sometimes we force God’s hand, so to speak.
WORLD: What better way to grow in faith than to observe the depraved, desperate world we were delivered from?
WORK: Work was given before the Curse. It’s good to use our minds and bodies, accomplishing something. Be blessed.
WARTS: This is any flaw, malady, or thorn in the flesh that ought to keep us humble.
WATCHING: …for the return of the Savior. Don’t we do better at everything when we are alert, sober, watching?
WONDERS: Okay, the Creation. I mean Wow, Right? Plus everything else God does every day. Take note.
WINDS: Though not tossed by every wind of doctrine, I’ve grown by leaps and bounds, through times I’ve had to take leaps and bound over nonsense.
WRENCHES: When there’s a wrench in the works, how I wish I’d have more often grown instead of grumbled.
WISDOM: A chapter from Proverbs every day—repeat every month. ‘Nuff said.
WATER: Yes, the Word washes. But frankly we do our health a disservice by not drinking enough water.
WICKED: Caution—but by persevering with the wicked, we can grow in our faith in God, humility, contentment, and more.
WITNESSING: We shortchange our own joy by quenching the Spirit. Let’s bear fruit for the kingdom.
WAITING: Sometimes I think God teaches me the most when He places me in the waiting room.
This entry has been abridged for time. So why not use today’s post as a springboard for meditation: What tools has God given, that we’re leaving on the shelf?
2 Peter 1:3 — His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness
