Scripture for Today: Hebrews 13:20a-21 “Now may the God of peace……equip you with everything good for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen”
Being that my husband is not a handyman type, our tool box leaves a bit to be desired. It is not surprising that no one seems to want to borrow our tools! We have only the minimum and somehow they sit in disarray in a corner of the basement. We are spoiled with a landlord and with friends who are talented with tools and always willing to help.
It is important to have some tools though. I remember in high school a group of us were returning from Bible study and the car broke down. The driver confidently went to the trunk for tools and presented us with a hammer and a roll of duck tape! That was not going to do much!
Our verse for today is reassuring. God promises that He will equip us to do anything and everything that He asks of us! He has given us His Spirit, infusing us with His power! He has given us special spiritual gifts to serve Him better. He has given us the fruit of His Spirit and the teaching of His Word.
There have been times in my life I have been nervous about what He might ask of me should I completely surrender my will to Him. But I have lived this truth; my God is a gracious God. He does not ask something of me without enabling me to accomplish it! He is at work in me using all those tools. Thank you, Lord, that You are faithful to equip me to do Your will today.
