“God has breathed life into all Scripture. It is useful for teaching us what is true. It is useful for correcting our mistakes. It is useful for making our lives whole again. It is useful for training us to do what is right. 17 By using Scripture, the servant of God can be completely prepared to do every good thing.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17 NIRV
We are often easily distracted…taking our eyes off of Jesus and focusing on things we can’t control. Much like Peter who stepped out of the boat to walk on the water by faith (Matthew 14:22-33)…we learn that as soon as he took his focus off of Jesus, Peter began to sink. The first step of putting our faith in Jesus is extremely important that is how we get started on our faith journey…yet the next steps are just as important, keeping our eyes on Him, even when, especially when the winds of evil and darkness blow strongly against us. Keep God’s Word close to you and within your heart.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”
Psalm 119:105 NIV
