Ingredients for a Successful Life

Open your Bibles 2 Tim 3 ...... and Psalms chapter 1

While you turn there....let me quote another verse from Psalms 107:20 .....

Psalms 107:20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

The AMP says "He SENDS forth His word and HEALS them and RESCUES them from the pit and destruction.

HIS WORD is still what He sends to bring us BOTH, Restoration and Deliverance today....

Although most all the world has changed the way it operates.........

.....God’s Purpose Hasn’t Changed.....

.....God’s Plans haven’t changed......

And His Word hasn’t changed...

It is just as Right and True and VALUABLE today as it has ever been......

And it is still HIS WORD that we are going to have to receive and DO....

....IF we ever find what we really DESIRE in life.

Prov 4:22 teaches us that God’s Words are "...life to those that find them, and health to all their flesh"

In Psalm 119:98 the psalmist said that, God, through His Commandments, made the Psalmist WISER than his enemies

God’s Word is One of the reasons we’re here today.....

We’re here ....To HEAR it and Learn it so that we can DO IT

....and RECEIVE ALL the Benefits God has Laid up in store for His People.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Now, notice the word PROFITABLE...it means: Bringing profit or gain, Useful or Advantageous.

That describes the Word of God VERY WELL today.....

It’s For YOUR BENEFIT .....Your ADVANTAGE.....But you have to USE IT

#1 Use it for doctrine....a Doctrine is what you build your belief system on.....

In Mt 16 ...When Simon confessed his belief that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God.......

....Jesus declared Simon’s stability by changing his name to Peter.....

Every time you receive Right Revelation and Understanding of God’s Word and how it relates to you, It brings STABILITY into your life.....

Jesus went on to tell how He would build His Church On a RIGHT REVELATION of the Truth

and RELEASE AUTHORITY in heaven and earth to those who walk in it.....

There are many today, who have built their belief system around Man’s Ideas and Theories.....hopes and wishes....

...and they are too often HEARTBROKEN, Miserable and Failing in life.....

You need to know: It doesn’t have to be that way.....

.....Go Back to the Word of God and Settle yourself to BELIEVE what it says.....

Build your life on it.....

Next..... Use the Word of God for Reproof and CORRECTION

Reproof tells us When and Where we are wrong.....and Correction tells us HOW to Make it right......

In verse 16, for "correction" the CJB says "Correcting faults"

That’s where we left off the last time we visited this passage of Scripture

.....We talked about going from being a Loser to the Winner God created us to be.....

Today, we’re talking about how to LIVE the rest of your Life as a WINNER

The Key is in The last part of 2 Tim 3:16 "Instruction in righteousness"

Once we get our Faults Corrected.....and begin to win in life

......We need INSTRUCTION in Right Living so that we Keep on Winning......

.....and never set up house again in the land of Failure and Defeat.

Because we were born with a sin nature.....

...and were Naturally UNRIGHTEOUS before we came to Christ.......

....We didn’t come PREPROGRAMMED with any Knowledge about How to Live in RIGHTEOUSNESS

And in Proverbs 16:25 the Bible teaches that ...The way that seemed right to us only led to Destruction.....

So....what we Must be willing and even DILIGENT to receive from God......

.......IF WE ARE GOING TO STAY BUILT UP RIGHT. .... is Instruction in the way Righteousness....

And its the Scripture.....the Word that teaches us BOTH How to Turn our lives Around for the good and to KEEP them turned in the right direction.

.....in the way of righteousness.....

That’s what my Study Bible says right above Psalm 1 ...."The way of rightousness"

Let’s Look at Psalm 1 for a few minutes and see what Instruction we can get about THE WAY of Righteousness

Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
