The Secret To Success
July 15 - Devotion
Some exile Jews who returned from Babylon to Jerusalem trusted the scripture for their guidance. They concentrated on researching the scripture to understand God's mind, and also to have their expectations met. The scripture stated,
“…Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly of men and women and all who could hear with understanding on the first day of the seventh month. Then he read from it in the open square that was in front of the Water Gate from morning until midday, before the men and women and those who could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive to the Book of the Law” (Nehemiah 8:2-3).
The secret to life achievements is reserved in the Bible. Anyone who aspires to success must study his or her bible. Also, the bible exposes its readers to understand God’s mind and his requirements. It teaches a person to learn how to repent from his sin and live a holy life that God expects. Indeed, lasting success, peace, and prosperity can only be found in the bible which is the word of God. Hence, all children of God should make it their committed practice to study their bible to live victorious lives.
Dear God, please teach me how to daily study my bible so that I can be wise and prosper. Teach me how to apply bible knowledge to my daily activities so that I can prosper in all my ways. More importantly, let the knowledge of your word keep me fit to inherit your eternal kingdom. Please do these things and many more. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
