The Right Tool

 

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Psalm 119:105

 

I like to fix things.

 

I relish the process of restoration, making whatever has been damaged whole again.

 

I can get very focussed and refuse to give up even if problems crop up along the way.

 

However, the most frustrating things is when I can’t finish the job because I can’t find or don’t have the right tool.

 

How do you respond when something in your life breaks down and needs to be repaired?

 

Do problems prompt anger or are you able to respond with a sense of anticipation?

 

James 1:2-4 shows us how trials can benefit us:

My brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of any kind, consider it nothing but joy, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance; and let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing.

 

When struggles come our way, we don’t ever lack the right tool for the job. We have the wisdom of the church and one multi-purpose tool – the word of God – which can guide us through every repair job we encounter.

 

The bible is both lamp and light, which means that it shines brightly into our circumstances as well as illuminates the steps we should take.

 

If we embrace this powerful tool God has given us, we will experience peace and hope even during the most difficult challenges of life.

 

As any handyman would say, “having the right tool makes all the difference.”

 

PRAYER

 

Lord

Thank you for your Word that gives us hope and direction in our lives. May we turn to it in every situation and repair job in our lives that we have!

Father we make this prayer in the name of Jesus through the power of your holy spirit.

 

Amen
