Job 32:8 (KJV)
8 But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 (KJV)
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Do you sit sometimes, and your imagination goes wild? It happens to everyone. That is called inspiration. Most of the time it is ignored because you may think the inspirational dream is beyond your reach. Without realizing it the inspiration could be exactly what you need as an answer to your prayer. The beauty of the Word of God is that the writers did not ignore their inspiration from the Lord to write. The Scriptures are a holy writ, not just another book. Paul is writing to Timothy to instruct him in the ministry. At that time, the scriptures they had was sacred writings of the authors of the Old Testament and the commandments of God because the New Testament was history in the making. The Old Testament should not be ignored because it is full of wisdom and understanding that will bring great gain to your life. The doctrinal benefit is to teach the will of God and prophetically point to the coming of Jesus Christ. The reproof is to convince men of the truth that Jesus Christ is the Messiah. The correction is to reconcile man back to God by restoring things the order of things according to his will. The instruction in righteousness is to communicate to people the true meaning of living in right standing with God. Paul was letting Timothy know that the study of the scriptures would make him “complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.” That is why Paul and the other Apostles wrote letters to the church because they were inspired by the Holy Spirit to relate the history and teachings of Jesus Christ. It was so that the followers of Christ, the Anointed one, would have continuous instruction in the will and ways of God through the Lord Jesus Christ. You never know if the things you write today under the unction of the Holy Spirit will make it to a heart that will be reconciled to God. As the blessings of inspiration flow into your life, take note. Do not ignore because nothing is insignificant when you are meditating on the Word of God and inspiration hits your mind and heart. Receive your blessings today, who knows? you could be the inspiration that will change the mind of those who are going the wrong direction and set them on the right path.
