THE SCRIPTURES TRAIN YOU
” All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” 2 Timothy 3:16 (NKJV)
At new birth, you received the life of God, and full capacity.
Jesus said, “…I came that they may have life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].” John 10:10 (Amplified)
However, for the life to have full expression in you, it is dependent on how you have been cultivated.
The life of God is in your spirit. God does not live in your mind; He lives in your spirit. And your mind has to be cultured to become conscious with the reality of God in your spirit-man.
This is what spiritual maturity is in a certain degree. Spiritual maturity is basically your growth in consciousness. It is your mind, your will and emotions being cultivated to operate according to the reality of God in your spirit.
“God has not given you the spirit of fear”
This is the reality of your spirit.
However, you may find yourself living in fear.
Your mind, emotions and will have not be trained to practice the reality of fearlessness.
The more you give yourself to the training of the Word, the more you live according to God’s reality in your spirit.
You have to consciously submit your consciousness, mind, will and emotions to the teachings of the Word.
When you don’t submit yourself to the teachings of the Word, you must know you are being cultivated by another thought patterns.
Whether you are intentional about it or not, you are cultivated or trained to live by some thought patterns.
If your life is not influenced by the Word of God, you will be influenced by some other information.
It is just like having a bare land, with no intentional vegetation.
The land will not remain bare forever, because weeds will germinate on that land.
Weeds grow anywhere there is room.
As long as no activity is happening on a land doesn’t mean nothing is growing on that land.
Our Lord Jesus likened the heart to a field and the word to a seed. (Mark 4:16-20).
When you don’t intentionally cultivate or train your heart with the Word, weeds will germinate.
Even whiles you are cultivating your heart with the word (as the seed), you have to consistently use the word to uproot wrong seeds which will germinate on the field.
Usually when you are cultivating a soil and weeds also begin to germinate on that field, they compete with the plants over nutrients.
The word of God as a seed is profitable for:
” *…doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness*” 2 Timothy 3:16 (NKJV)
The scriptures are God’s course for your living. They are designed to culture your heart and also to uproot or correct any wrong teachings of the world.
To word instruct is the Greek word, “paideia”; which means to educate or train and to correct or discipline and chastise.
The word of God trains you, to live according to God’s design and thought.
It sharpens your mind, emotions and will to live in conformity to God’s will publicly and privately.
Don’t allow weeds of thoughts from the news, the society, friends, school, workplace etc germinate in your heart. Guard your heart with the Word of God.
Be intentional about what grows in your heart.
Envy, pride, hatred, fear, pain, bitterness, etc can geminate in your heart without your permission, if you don’t intentionally give yourself to the training of the Word.
As you study the Word, it corrects negative imaginations and thoughts which are not in conformity to the mind of God.
This is how you can be equipped for every good work.
(Romans 15:4; Zephaniah 3:4; Psalm 119:11; Proverbs 6:23; Proverbs 15:10,31)
That we will consciously submit our consciousness, mind, will and emotions to the teachings of the Word.
Day 114: 2 Kings 1-2
