Have you heard people say, “I just wish life came with a set of instructions?” There are numerous self-improvement books available for purchase. They come in many forms. I have lots of them on my shelves at home, and on my Kindle. As a matter of fact, I have authored a few of these books myself. But the one book that stands the test of time, and is the greatest self-improvement book of all, is The Holy Bible. When reading devotional books or self-help books, it is a good idea to measure them against the instructions in The Ultimate Guide…The Holy Bible.
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 straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right. It is God’s way of preparing us in every way, fully equipped for every good thing God wants us to do. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (nlt)
By nature, most people are inclined not to follow the instructions. We would rather produce excuses instead of providing results. Living this way makes life very complicated. Following instructions requires discipline. At first, it can be difficult to change. To master any problem is to master you. If you’re feeling frustrated about things in your life right now, assess the situation. Step back and look closely at your life. Could it be that you have been seeking your advice in all the wrong places?
The source of life is God. The Holy Bible is inspired by Him. I encourage you to take time to pray, and read His holy word. Unleash the power within you to make the right choices and seek your guidance from the true source of life!
Heavenly Father, Show me what you want me to see today.
Reveal my sins to me, and cleanse me of them.
Use me to make an eternal difference in the lives of others.
In your son’s name, I pray.
