Dearly beloved, Those of you who are walking with Jesus are a blessed man, a blessed woman! God has promised us to give us goodness and so in double portion, isn’t it? Have you received this blessing? Or haven’t you yet?
Please do not lose faith! Pray every day claiming the promise; there shall be goodness; you shall see blessings in double portion! God shall bless you! But there is one thing that we must do.
God is speaking to us regularly, right? God is also, giving us an advice in Proverbs 16:20. Look, what He is telling us: “He who heeds the word wisely will find good…” God is willing to do good; He is willing to help! To whom does He help? “He who heeds the word wisely will find good”! Are you studying? You must find good in your studies; you must win! Are you doing business? It must prosper; there must be gain! Are you working? You must get promotion; there must be a raise! In whatever you do, it must flourish, increase and prosper, isn’t it? That’s God’s promise: “To bless us in double fold”! But, if it should happen, what must we do?
We must ‘wisely heed to the word of God’! “We must wisely heed to the word of God!” Many lose the blessings they once owned by talking, doing things foolishly and leading their lives unwisely. Therefore, “we must wisely heed to the word of God!”. Be it in your studies or in your business or even at your work, being wise is very much needed! So, who will give us wisdom?
GOD! He is the God who gives us wisdom, to heed the word wisely and He is also the one who blesses us! “God, please give me a wise heart. You’ve given me all this responsibility; I must do everything wisely heeding to Your word!” -ask Him so. Look at Solomon who became a king of a nation at a very young age. He looked at his nation and knew that the needs of the people are great. “How am I going to meet all these?” Solomon knew, “Only if I act wisely, shall these people prosper!” God appeared to Solomon and asked him, “Solomon, ask me whatever you want?” So, Solomon asked, “God, I need wisdom; I need to be wise. Please give me wisdom and insight to govern and lead my people justly.” God was happy. He provided him with wisdom and also blessed him with wealth and honor. So, ask God, “Please give me wisdom.” We need wisdom to lead a family, we need wisdom to run a business, we need wisdom to carry on with a ministry. A good insight is needed in all that we do. Only God can give it to you.
Ask Him today, “God, please bless me with wisdom and insight.” Then, you shall see goodness. “Father, how many responsibilities have you gives us, Father! Family, work, business, things concerning studies, etc., are a lot of responsibilities. We need wisdom and insight in order to fulfill our duties, Father. Please give me such wisdom and insight for me/ for us. Please fill us with Your spirit of wisdom. Please give us Your grace to execute things heeding Your word wisely. Grant this to Your children today and bless them. In Jesus’ name I pray, Father! Amen. Amen.”
