Studiousness – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional October 1st

(An Important Quality For Success And Impact)

TO THE BIBLE: 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Daniel made an outstanding impact in his day. According to the Scriptures, the reason for his impactful life was he had an excellent spirit.

In Daniel 1:4 (NIV), the Bible shows us that the king needed people who were “showing aptitude for every kind of learning, well informed, quick to understand” to manage the affairs of his kingdom, and Daniel was found to be eminently qualified.

And he was studious so much so that he found out Jeremiah’s prophecy about the end of Israel’s seventy years of captivity and gave special attention to it.

In Daniel 9:2, he said, “In the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the LORD through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.”

We find this same quality of studiousness in Paul the Apostle. In 2 Timothy 4:13, we see his attachment to his study materials when he said to Timothy, “When you come, be sure to bring the coat I left at Troas with Brother Carpus, and also the books, but especially the parchments” (TLB).

He specifically requested for his study materials to be sent to him because he was a diligent student.

If Daniel and Paul were studious, why wouldn’t you be? You must study to show yourself approved to God, a workman who doesn’t need to be ashamed, but can rightly divide the word of truth.

In Hosea 4:6, God said, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge….” He was referring to the knowledge of the Word. Unless you know the Word for yourself, you will be a victim in life.

That’s why God wants you to study. Dedicate yourself to the Word, and your success, progress, and prosperity will be inevitable.

I’m devoted to voracious study of the Word of God; therefore, I experience success upon success, living victoriously, walking in divine health, and winning every day. Through my knowledge of the Word of God, I make an outstanding impact for the Lord in my world, leading many out of ignorance and lack of divine realities into the glorious liberty of the sons of God, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
