God’s Truth for Trying Times - 8/10/20


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: ‬ ‭‬‬2 Timothy‬ ‭3:10-11‬ ‭‬‬

“You, however, have followed my teaching, my conduct, my aim in life, my faith, my patience, my love, my steadfastness, my persecutions and sufferings that happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, and at Lystra—which persecutions I endured; yet from them all the Lord rescued me.”

‭‭(2 Timothy‬ ‭3:10-11‬)


CONSIDER: Paul reminded Timothy that he is of the truth and aligned with righteousness. Timothy followed Paul’s example and trusted in the Lord who delivers. There is strong encouragement for us here, to follow godly examples and to trust the Lord as our sovereign Savior.


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?
