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
I have been locked out of the network at my job since yesterday. The system is asking for authentication that came through an email. However, I did not read the email or deleted it without reading it. Thus, I am unable to get the passcode I need to access the VPN. Though I can check and reply to emails, I cannot attend some meetings. I tried to call the help desk. However, the waiting has been extremely lengthy because so many people are having similar issues.
Many people are struggling to access the full benefits available to them through the Almighty God because they are not reading the instructions he provided in scripture. Scripture reveals the access code by which we can reach out to God in the person of Jesus. It is in the name of Jesus that every need can be met.
It is not enough to go to church or to be “religious.” One has to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through their confession of faith. The fact that we go to church does not necessarily give us access to the fullness of God’s blessings for us. God is looking for followers, not fans. He gave us his inspired word to help us access the passcode (Jesus) to eternal glory.
The only way for anyone to get into heaven is through Jesus Christ. His name is the only one able to save, and his blood the only one able to cleanse us of all unrighteousness. It is at the name of Jesus that we have the victory over enemies seen and unseen. When we use that name it opens up the portal of God’s storehouse from where all blessings flow.
The process of waiting for IT to contact me about my issue has been frustrating. In the same way, many people get frustrated with God as we wait for him to meet a need or deliver us from something. They grow weary and anxious in their waiting period because they do are not reading the instructions provided by the Almighty in his word.
We should read the word of God before making any major decision, or tackle any major challenge, or make any assumption. The word is profitable for reproof, for correction, and for instructions in righteousness. It is in his word the Almighty reveals the steps he wants us to take to move forward and be fruitful.
The instructions for a successful marriage is in the word of God. Whatever we need to know about personal success in the areas of finance, business, relationships, education, politics, mental and spiritual strength is in the word. The word of God cannot fail. It is divinely inspired and is intended for righteousness. It is no wonder the Psalmist says “I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you” (Psalm 119:11).
The word of God is not a piece of literature. It is not a philosophical treatise. The word captures the most comprehensive means by which God conveys his love for his creation, his plans for our salvation, his strategy for our victory over demonic forces, and his purpose for our lives. Reading and studying the word of God is necessary for living our best lives on earth in anticipation of the glory that is reserved for us in the heavens.
Of us 11:40 AM, I am still unable to access my company’s protected network because I am missing the passcode. Thank God, I already have the passcode to the Father through my relationship with Jesus Christ. God wants everyone to have full access to his storehouse in heavenly places. However, we cannot do so without confessing Jesus as Lord and Savior. Then we will be inspired to discern the blessings the Father has for us through his word.
Prayer- Blessed Lord, thank you for giving us unfettered access to your throne of glory through our faith in Jesus Christ
