Guard That Deposit

October 26th daily blog devotional by Keith Wayne Edwards

Read:


2 Timothy 1:13,14

13 What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus.

14 Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you—guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us


Whenever you have a treasure, there is always a thief. The enemy wants to destroy the word from our mind and soul that we lay down as a foundation. Our mind, will, and emotions need to line up with the very Christ within us, and Satan wants nothing more than to totally stop us in our tracks as a believer. These current dark ages we are living in is bringing us to a place where we need to shine the light of Jesus to others like never before, and I feel like God wants us to beware of the enemy today in these dark ages we face. One night at work I was meditating on this scripture, and it seemed like the Lord spoke to my heart about this. He said, " Son, be very careful. Many are watching your every move, and the enemy wants to steal that treasure from you so that you won't be effective to those around you. Guard that word son with extreme caution, and don't let the enemy steal it even for one second. Keep watch!" This is what the Lord wants for you today. I don't know how much of the word you have been storing up in your mind, will, and emotions, but be very careful to guard it with all diligence. The bible also says for us to guard our hearts with all diligence, for out of it flow the issues of life, and our will perpetually plays a role in the balance between our flesh and spirit. Entrusted in the Greek is paratheke, and the definition is a deposit and used of correct knowledge and pure doctrine of the gospel. Treasure in the Greek is Kalos, and the definition of treasure is beautiful because of the purity of heart and life. As a living epistle, we need to be the reflection of Christ Jesus and make His name attractive to those who don't have that name. We need to shine forth His truth to those who need truth, and we need to shine forth the love of Christ for those who don't understand or don't know His love. We are carriers of the very attributes of God, and He has deposited all of the attributes in our inner spirit where we have been born again. We are sanctified through spiritual growth, and spiritual foundation is established in our soul. I want to encourage you today to hold on to the word of God with all diligence and be that light to a dark and deceptive world. Many need to see some of that treasure that has been entrusted to you.

Prayer:

Lord, we ask that you will help us with the help of the Holy Spirit to guard that good treasure that has been deposited in us. Help us to renew our mind to the word, and help us to be that living epistle to those around us, Amen.
