TOPIC: THE MANUAL FOR LIFE
Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 1Corinthians 10:11
For every product that is purchased in the market there is always a manual that introduces you to how the product functions, its uses, how to benefit from it, how to properly manage and enjoy the product. Without going through the manual, one may still be able to make use of the product but will never fully maximize and enjoy it.
The same goes for you as a child of God who has received eternal life. You are Gods product, His life now resides in you and in this life is contained so much wonderful and beautiful things, you may however not fully benefit from these things if the proper knowledge is not in place. So God gave us the word as a guide, as a manual for our lives.
Like our opening scripture implies, the word of God is filled with examples of different men and women who actually lived thousands of years ago. Some in faith, some not, and the scriptures clearly points out to us the results of each. It shows us how God viewed all they did and Gods conclusion about their different actions.
With this in hand, you can tell the right course to take in life, you can know the mind of God concerning certain things, you can know the ways and actions of men, you can be wise concerning life. No wonder Paul writing to Timothy said “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise…..”
Through the help of the Holy Spirit, the scriptures can make you so wise in the affairs of life; it can culture, structure, discipline, correct, transform you and above all, help you live a beautiful life.
It is your manual for life so study it today to understand how to fully enjoy your glorious life in Christ. Have a great day.

CONFESSION: Good God, I thank you for this wonderful gift of your word given to me to navigate my way through life. I take advantage of it today to become wise unto righteousness and deal wisely with the affairs of life. Amen.
