VERSE: Make every effort to present yourself approved to God, an unashamed workman who accurately handles the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15).
EQUATION: Hard Work + Devotion to the Word of God = Untold Blessings x The Fruits of Obedience.
ACTION: Knuckle down to the necessary diligence required not just for the work of the Kingdom, but to grow closer to the Father so that His heartbeat becomes yours and mine.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, many of us who are wholly committed to You, have no problem standing and dying on the Hill of the Truth of Your Word, because we are not ashamed of the Gospel, the power of Salvation, that it is. What we have a problem, not just now, but always, is keeping our nose to the grindstone and trying not to get distracted by the things of this world and just the difficult things of life. So help us to adopt Psalm 119 as our own for the rest of 2017 and the rest of our lives, so that we may be found even more worthy to be called Your workmen, and that the overflow of our efforts will not just accurately portray and proclaim You as You are, but that many may come to see You, as You truly are, to the Praise and Glory of Your Name, in all Your goodness, grace, glory and Power and Love, through the greatest Name above all the other names- the Lord Jesus Christ, to Whom all honor is ascribed, amen and amen.
