The Word of God is beneficial to knowing God’s will for our lives.

According to the Apostle Paul, “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. “(2 Timothy 3:16 NLT)

So, let’s spend time in the Word everyday.
