He who keeps instruction is in the way of life, but he who refuses correction goes astray (Proverbs 10:17).

Anyone who learns to keep God’s instructions is expected to live a life of success and breakthroughs in life. There is no way your life will not be guaranteed when you learn to obey God’s instructions in life. The Bible tells us in the opening text that he who keeps instruction is in the way of life, but he who refuses correction goes astray. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that by obeying God’s instructions his way of life is indeed guaranteed by God in life. While obedience to God’s instructions gives one a guaranteed life, disobeying God’s instructions leads one astray in life forever.

The Bible further emphasized the usefulness of God’s instructions when it stated in Proverbs 4:13, “Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; keep her, for she is your life.” Therefore, whenever a Christian takes firmed hold of God’s instructions, his ways of life will be blessed and fully guaranteed. God’s instructions to you are the ways to your guaranteed life. There is no way your life could be guaranteed when one disobeys God’s instructions in his life. A Christian should never ignore God’s instructions to him because it is very dangerous to do so in life forever.

God’s instructions to you that will lead to a guaranteed life is embedded in His Word of life. Therefore, you should never for any reason ignore God’s Word of life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Psalm 119:105, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” In fact, whenever a Christian accepts God’s Word into his life, it definitely becomes a lamp to his feet and a great light to his paths of life. The Word of God is God Himself because you can never separate Him from His Word of Life (John 1:1). God’s Word is your instruction to your guaranteed life. A life that is devoid of God’s instructions is indeed a wasted life full of futility forever.

Daily Tip: The way to you guaranteed life is in God’s Word which is your instruction to your ways of life forever. Shalom!
