“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 perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
My husband and I are currently working to renovate and furnish a bed and breakfast in the area where we live. As I think about each of the rooms and various living spaces, I am spending much thought about ensuring that each room is furnished in a way that every need of our guest is provided for to the best of our ability. When we open Whispering Pines Bed and Breakfast, our goal is to have spaces that are throughly furnished.
(Authors Note: Throughly: completely; thoroughly: in a complete manner.)
Looking back at 2 Timothy 3:16-17, we are told that all scripture is given so that everything we need, to do the good work that God has called us to is throughly furnished. Everything we need is completely furnished for us, there is not one thing missing.
“For the Lord thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the Lord thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.” Deuteronomy 2:7
No matter what we face, no matter where life takes us, God has given us everything we need to face the wilderness. We lack for nothing. His Word guides us and directs us in the way we should go, providing us everything we need for the journey.
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105
Everything has been throughly furnished . . .
