Daily Devotional – 10/17/14 “Update and restart!”

Its Friday y’all! Praise the Lord with me! Even though I have to work on tomorrow, I still look forward to my weekends. But as I sit at my computer, it is prompting me to restart (after installing some updates) and if I don’t catch this little box thing every now and then to postpone it, it’s going to restart on it’s own and I’ll be screwed because it’ll restart in the middle of me working. Now, ok … Y’all know me but as I was sitting here I was thinking, how, as Saints, if we would upgrade our knowledge of God’s word every now and then and restart ourselves how much better we would be for the up building of God’s kingdom. I mean, just think about it. We update our computers, telephones and electronics with the latest updates yet we don’t update ourselves with the latest knowledge of God because if you’re a seasoned Saint you think you know everything and if you are a young Saint you think you know everything. But do we, really? Every scripture can be interpreted a hundred different ways to a hundred different people on a hundred different days but not if you don’t know them. Yet, how can you be taught a scripture if you haven’t read it for yourself?

If you’re wondering why your hope is falling short pick up your bible for Romans 15:4 tells us, “Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled.” 2 Timothy 3:16 says, “All 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. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.” Every now and then, update the software inside of you and restart and see if it doesn’t make a difference in your life. See if it doesn’t make your shine better. See if it doesn’t make you run a little faster. See if it doesn’t give you a boost of energy to fight the enemy off harder than before. Stay up on your game because the enemy sure in hell stays up on his. Update and restart because you might just find it was what you needed after all.
