A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels"
Every tree that is blossoming and fresh in all seasons has a secret supply of water and necessary nutrients through the roots. The roots underground also hold it firm to be able to withstand Storms. A tree planted by the river or watered Valley brings forth good fruits and beautiful leaves. So is the life of the wise. Joseph was favoured by his master Potiphar, the keeper of the prison also favoured him and finally, king Pharoah made him a prime minister because "the LORD was with Joseph" (Genesis 39:2).
The Youths who had excellent records in Bible history had the favour of God. Their secret was that they hid God’s Word in their hearts and obeyed it. These favoured people include: Abel, Joseph, Samuel, Solomon, Esther, Daniel and his three Hebrews friends, Paul, Timothy and Philip's daughters. To qualify for God's Favour and excel spiritually, academically, and in career, you need God’s Favour like thy did. And the foundation is being born again. Then as you study God’s Word and obey good counsels, you will get wiser and attain great heights.
CHALLENGE: True wisdom is to fear and obey God.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to hold on to your word in Jesus' name.
