God’s Truth for Trying Times - 12/17/21


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: 1 Timothy 5:5-6 

She who is truly a widow, left all alone, has set her hope on God and continues in supplications and prayers night and day, but she who is self-indulgent is dead even while she lives. [1 Timothy 5:5-6 ESV]


CONSIDER: There is another qualification for true widowhood, a pure, other-oriented, dependent heart that has set its hope in Christ and serves the Lord with sincerity.



THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?


PRAY: Pray these verses to God as a prayer. Pour out your heart in praise to God. Pray for others. Present needs to Him.
