S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
2 Timothy 2:9
For which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God’s word is not chained.
Paul wrote this letter to his young associate Timothy from a Roman prison. Paul was concerned that he was viewed as a common criminal. It is true that he was in prison because of what he believed and preached. Yet he was quick to proclaim this truth, “God’s WORD Is Free From Chains!”
How many times have you wondered if your life mattered for the work of the Lord? I know there have been many times in my life where I questioned whether or not I was of any use to Jesus whatsoever. In this passage Paul is stuck in prison, and in such cases, the enemy works on one’s mind. The devil wants us to doubt our use for the Lord. Paul clung to his promotion of the WORD of God. He said he was in chains, but God’s WORD could never be chained. If you, like Paul, will make the WORD of God and the spreading of the WORD of God your priority, there may be times when you will be limited like Paul was. But it is in those times we can say, “God’s WORD Is Not Chained!”
I’m grateful this AM that even when I’m facing limitations, Your WORD is not limited or chained in any way. With Your help, I will promote Your WORD as long as I have strength! Amen
