LISTEN TO GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS AND BE WISE!
Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a just man, and he will increase in learning (Proverbs 9:9).
Listening to God’s instructions increases wisdom in a man’s life. The foolishness of God is wiser than the wisest of men in life. The Bible says in the opening text that give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a just man, and he will increase in learning. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to always listen to His instructions and be wise in life. Whenever a Christian humbles himself to listen to God’s instructions in life, he will definitely find life in abundance. There is great power of divine direction by listening to God’s instructions in life. Hence, the ability to listen to God’s instructions and be wise is absolutely the will of God to every Christian in life forever.
The Bible gives us a vivid case study with the life of Isaac in a foreign land of Gerar in Philistine. There was a great and severe famine that affected everyone in the land. Isaac wanted to relocate to the land of Egypt because of the famine in life. But God instructed him to dwell and sow in the land. When he listened and obeyed God’s instructions, the Bible recorded thus, “The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous” (Genesis 26:13). Therefore, it is by listening to God’s instructions that brings about abundant prosperity into one’s life. Listening to God’s instructions is absolutely the key to obtaining divine wisdom in life forever.
God’s instructions give life to anyone who will like to listen and obey it in life. Whenever a Christian chooses to listen and obey God’s instructions in life, he is choosing to walk in the path of greatness. That is the reason why the Bible says in Proverbs 4:13, “Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; keep her, for she is your life.” In fact, it is God’s instructions that actually bring about one’s greatness and abundance in life. The ability to listen to God’s instructions and obeying them paves way for man’s destiny fulfillment in life. Therefore, learn to always listen to God’s instructions and be wise in life. Listening to God’s instructions and obeying them is absolutely a total panacea to foolishness that can lead to man’s destructions in life forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian should learn to listen to God’s instructions and be wise in life. God’s instruction paves way for your destiny fulfillment and greatness in life forever. Shalom!
