1 From Paul, God’s willing slave and an apostle of Jesus, the Anointed One, to Titus. I’m writing you to further the faith of God’s chosen ones and lead them to the full knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness, 2 which rests on the hope of eternal life. God, who never lies, has promised us this before time began. 3 In his own time he unveiled his word through the preaching of the gospel, which was entrusted to me by the command of God our Life Giver.
4 Titus, you are my true son in the faith we share. May grace and peace descend to you from God the Father and our Savior, the Anointed One, Jesus!
Titus 1:1-4 TPT
To the fatherless he is a father.
To the widow he is a champion friend.
To the lonely he gives a family.
To the prisoners he leads into prosperity until they sing for joy.
This is our Holy God in his Holy Place!
He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will SOAR high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
We all have valleys that we go through.
“Cutting logs with a dull ax makes you work harder. A wise man will sharpen his ax. In the same way, wisdom can make any job easier.”
