2 Timothy 3:16 tells us that ALL Scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness. The Bible is a work of God that was written by human men that were inspired by God. What better source of inspiration than our Creator! Whether you are looking for motivation, encouragement, reassurance, or peace, the Bible should be the first resource you turn to! Allow the Lord be your guide and do not lean to your own understanding.
1Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—
3who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
4who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
5who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
God is the initiator and finisher of our faith. It is He who gives us a heart of repentance, obedience and devotion. Therefore, no one should boast about his own merits. Faith is a divine work of God on our heart that correlate with our willingness to surrender into His mighty hand.
