The Bible: Our Inspiration

 

 

Today’s Word

 Inspiration

 Divine influence directly and immediately exerted upon the mind or soul.

The divine quality of the writings or words of a person so influenced.

Today’s Verse

 2 Timothy 3

 16 Every scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 

17  that the person dedicated to God may be capable and equipped for every good work.

The Bible, a book inspired by God in order to convey to us His message of salvation, His message of love, and His message of inspiration for our lives. As we read it, we see His words written, His message explained, and His love for us.

Message of Salvation

How beautiful is the word of God! As we read it and learn from it, we grow in wisdom, grace, and faith. All are gifts from God. They are gifts that were paid by the sacrifice of his only son, Jesus Christ. He died for all of us so that we could enjoy eternal salvation. All we have to do is believe that Jesus died, was buried, resurrected, and now sits at the right hand of God.

God’s Message

Not only must we believe, but also we must read His Word, the Bible, a book with many authors who, by the inspiration of God, wrote a guide for us to learn, study, and follow. God used each author to convey His magnificence, love, hope, forgiveness, and acceptance.

Inspired Application

As we read the Bible, we are amazed at its application to our daily lives. No matter what we need, we can reach to it and find words of wisdom. If we are having a bad day, we can find words of encouragement. If we are weary with our troubles, we can find peace. If we are grieving, we can find understanding.

 

Reach to your Bible, today.

 

Let God speak to your heart.

 

Let God inspire you.

Heartache, Why?

heartache and pain

Ecclesiastes 1:18


For with great wisdom comes great frustration;

whoever increases his knowledge merely increases his heartache.

 When I write a blog for my website, I think of ways to inspire others. I do not know what that is, but I figured that if I have struggled, experienced, or learned from my own difficulties, others might have done the same. Over the weekend, I experienced a heart-breaking situation. I am dealing with the different emotions that are going through my head, and realize that things happen for a reason. God allows us to go through situations so that we can learn from the experience, grow as individuals, and have more faith in him.

Learn from the experience

There are times that we do not want to experience heartache, but we do. We question, why did this happen? Even though, we do not understand the reason, we do understand that there must have been one. As time passes by, we see that had it happened the way we wanted it and had we not suffered a heartache, it could have had negative and complicated consequences that were not comprehensible at the time. We take the experience we place it somewhere in our subconscious, and if faced with it again, we know what needs to be done. Although, at the time, we suffered, we learned from the experience.


Grow as individuals

Hard knocks, or life experiences, once we have learned from them, help us grow as individuals. As we go through life, we gain insight, knowledge, and wisdom. All three are good for personal growth. Insight gives us a better look at situations, knowledge gives us a better understanding of things that happen, and wisdom gives us prudence when faced with different situations.


More faith in God

We face an infinite number of situations in life, for which we are not prepared. Life does not have a How-To book that we can open up and follow each time we need guidance. However, our knowledge of faith helps us make the best decisions when God is consulted. Does that make it easier? Does it make it harder? Does it have any impact at all? The answer is within us. Do you believe in God? Do you not believe in God? Do you rather not even think in those terms? Then the answer will be dependent on you, your faith, and your belief. Faith in God, like anything else, is a personal choice. I choose to believe God exists, and I choose to believe that having faith in him, allowing him to guide my life, and giving him control of my worries and problems, provide the best way to understand the reason why things happen.

When I am faced with a heartache, I reason that there must be a lesson to be learned. I look for the lesson and I apply it to my life so that I can grow in insight, knowledge, and wisdom. I put my faith in God, I allow him to guide me, and in the end, he provides the reason or reasons why I had to go through the experience. It does not make it any easier. I still hurt, cry, and question, but I remember that with faith, I can overcome and arise to be a better person, a better individual, and a better witness for him.
