READ: Ex. 17:10-13; Ps. 5:2-3; Matt. 6:5-13; Rom. 8:26-27; James 5:16; 1 John 5:14-15.
HEART ISSUE: The Bible tells us to "study to show [ourselves] approved" (2 Tim. 2:15, KJV). Have you been faithful to study the Bible regarding your area of ministry?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, thank You for Your abundant wisdom given in Your Word. Lead me to passages pertaining to the gifts and ministry You have called me to. Amen.
