Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth. 2 Timothy 2:15 (AMP)
I know that is what you are looking for from me. What am I looking for from you? You are looking for me to meet with you in your word. You want me to live and walk in an intimate relationship with you. You want to change my heart. You want to transform my mind. You want to guide the entire course of my life. You want me to come to know and love and follow and serve you. You want me to be able to know and do your will. You want to fan the flame of eagerness in me to study your word. All of what you have said is true. I want to do all these things in your heart and mind and life. I want to use my word to mold and shape your life. I want you to make you into the person I have called you to become. I want you to be able to live the life I have given you to live. I want to set you on fire to serve me. How do you feel about what I have said? I am excited. I am thankful. I am grateful. I welcome your good work in me. That is very good.
I know there is something more. I know that there is something you have not yet said. What is it? I am waiting. I am attentive. I am listening. You are correct, I do have more to say to you. I have placed in you an eagerness to study my word. You are correct in thinking that you must make meeting with me in my word the priority of your life. You are right in thinking that my word will change your heart, transform your mind, and guide your life. My word will surely accomplish these purposes in you. I do have another vitally important and larger purpose to accomplish in and through you as you study my word. What is that? I will use my word to make you able to teach others. I want others to allow my word to do its work in their lives. Will you allow me to prepare you to teach my word to others? Will you go out into the world to teach my word to others? Yes Lord, I will. That will be very good. You can be certain that I will do this work in and through you. Thank you, Lord. I am at your service. Yes, I know that to be true.
Lord, thank you for giving me an eager desire to meet daily with you in your word. Use your word to change my heart, transform my mind and guide my life. Help to teach your word to others so the entire course of their lives will also be guided by your word. Amen
