Daily Devotional – God Equips Us

By on January 5, 2022

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Ephesians 4:11-16. Before you leave the house, you get dressed. You do not leave for a trip without packing and preparing for the voyage and destination. 

“So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”

God equips us for the assignment

People like to have everything in order and aligned. We like to trust in our own strength and wisdom, and so we calculate the risks and rewards. Contrary to the human way of doing things, God equips us through His Holy Spirit and leadership. At the moment, through our faith and reliance on God, God equips us to perform His will. 

God also equips us over time, chiseling and chastening a character and reliance on Himself. As we embrace the challenges of life and grow in empathy and love, we maturely make wise choices from a humble point of view.

Let us embrace the position and location that God has us. He has placed us into His body specifically with the skills and gifts that He supplied too. As we head out on a new year and new journey, we can place our faith in God equipping us in the perfect timing.

Let’s Pray

Dear Father, 

Thank you that You are my leader and guide me along peaceful rivers if only I follow You. I trust in You and Your provision and equipping. May You be glorified through all that I do today as I share Your love with all those around me.

In Jesus Name,

Amen
