“Now may the God of peace…equip you with all you need for doing his will.” (Hebrews 13:21.)
When God calls you to do something, He equips you with everything you need to do it. This provision includes every aspect of your life: your family, school, work, purpose…all of it!
When God equips you, there are three primary ways He does this:
- Through the Bible.
God first equips us through His Word.
2 Timothy 3:17 says “[a]ll Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives.
God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.”
- Through His Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is our helper, sent to both teach us about God and to remind us of His Word. (John 14:26.)
This is why it is so important to hide His Word in our hearts—it is the foundation the Holy Spirit uses to guide us.
- Through the Body of Christ.
Proverbs 27:17 notes, “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.”
God uses mentors and friends He assigns in our lives to help guide, encourage, and build us up in our faith.
When you know God has called you to do something, stay in His Word and follow His Spirit’s leading. He will faithfully prepare you with everything needed to accomplish His plans for your life.
Today’s Truth: When God calls you to do something, He equips you with everything you need to do it.
Today’s devotion was written by Erin Grant. Erin says, “I am who I am because of who He is. God changed my life, and my heart is to be used of Him to bring others into the healing, wholeness, and freedom He intended for each one of us. Ultimately, I long to bring others into an encounter with His heart and manifest presence, and to see revival and salvations ignited across the United States.”
