“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)
To rightly the divide the Word of God it takes times of reading it, meditating on it, and also studying it. Each way opens up the truth of the Word. I look at the Word of God like a miner seeking for gold. Yes, he might get lucky and find some on the top, but most gold takes a lot of digging and working.
When we open our Bibles and start reading it, sometimes things can jump right off of the page and we are amazed and we get all excited. But there are other times that we read the Word and nothing really hits us. That’s when we need to ponder and chew on it for a while. Do it during the course of the day.
You might say, how do I do that? Here, let me show you a couple of different ways. When you find a verse that speaks to you write it down or put it on the wallpaper on your phone, then, throughout the day look at it, say it a few times and think about what it’s saying to you personally.
Before I got a Smartphone, I used to write scriptures on 3 by 5 cards and carry them with me, or hang them in places I would go, like a mirror, or on the door of the fridge. Be creative and you will see that you will be digging up nuggets before you know it. His Word will be rightly divided in your life and you will be used for the kingdom of God, who is not ashamed.
“One who uses the Bible as his guide never loses his sense of direction”
Heavenly Father, Starting today, I’m going to be a doer and a digger of the Word. I’m going to let the Your Holy Word have first place in my life and study it so that I can rightly divide it and not be ashamed. I also ask that you allow me to experience Your word visually while reading and meditating on it. Give me insight and understanding on the scriptures. We ask this in Jesus precious name. Amen.
