The Guidebook

From today's daily devotional:

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,
so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Unless we form the habit of going to the Bible in bright moments as well as in trouble, we cannot fully respond to its consolations because we lack equilibrium between light and darkness. -- Helen Keller

Blessed Obedience

From my daily devotional book:

God is God. Because He is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will, a will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what He is up to (Elisabeth Elliot)

Key Scripture: Deuteronomy 30:2-3 ~ note the use of the word "when" throughout this section of scripture. This tells me that these are PROMISES to rest on.
