"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,…" (2 Timothy 3:16 NIV)
God's Word tells us the truth about Him, about ourselves, and about the way He does things... God's Word is a living message to His people, literally "God-breathed." Those who read Scripture often recount the times when a particular message jumped off the page and spoke to their hearts.
Of course, [God] doesn't intend for us to use His Word like a collection of disconnected slogans that promise us everything we want. But when we sincerely seek to know God, the Scriptures provide clear guidance, warm comfort, and supernatural solutions.
