2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NKJV)
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
John 16:13 (NKJV)
“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. ”
You don’t have to learn through the “school of hard knocks”! You don’t have to wonder around ignorant of what God wants for you! God has provided His Word and the Holy Spirit to teach us all we need to know. God does not teach us by causing misfortune in our lives, the devil is the author of misfortune. Thankfully, God is an expert in changing what the devil authored and intended for your destruction into something for your good.
