THEME: YOU CAN BE A SUCCESS — A TRUE SUCCESS!
My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings....For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh (Proverbs 4:20-22).
Getting a school degree is important, but there’s more to life. There’s something more important than the education you receive from the four walls of an academic institution; it’s called spiritual education. For some people, having acquired an academic degree, they think that’s all they need. While it’s good to be formally educated, true success is of the Spirit.
This accounts for the reason many of the world’s intelligentsia have a life that’s the complete antithesis of true success. Some people made straight “A”s in school but got a “D” in life. For example, a medical doctor who, after treating so many people, contracts a disease that has defied all medical solutions. Now, he’s unable to help himself. How sad. Life is spiritual, and true success is only achievable when you apply the principles of God’s Word. The Word of God guarantees your all-round prosperity; give it first place in your life.
Let no one deceive you and tell you that life is full of ups and downs; you can be a success—a true success. Joshua 1:8 tells you how: “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
Proverbs 3:5 says, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.” In all that you do in life, let the Word guide you; study it and do what it says, and you’d always be a success.
Dear Father, thank you for giving me the understanding of the mystery of the kingdom of heaven. I submit myself to be continually educated by your Word; therefore, I declare that my life is a product of your Word, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
For this cause we also, since the day we heard [it], do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;.
