Pay attention to what you are taught, and you will be successful; trust in the LORD and you will be happy.
Proverbs 16:20 GNT
Success is defined as “the attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like.” Many people view success when someone is rich or famous. Success in today’s verse is more about having wisdom. When we are wise, we put our trust in the LORD and we are happy and at peace.
As students, we gain wisdom from the Word of God. If we are good students, we will learn and then apply the knowledge to our lives. By doing this, we will be able to trust in His promises and not be distracted to what is going on around us.
How wonderful it is to have our trust in the Lord. We won’t be really disturbed by the circumstances of life. Our trust is in God and we are happy.
Let us be good students and study God’s word, gain wisdom and as we trust in Him, we will be happy and joyful!
God's commands are designed to guide you to life's very best. You will not obey Him, if you do not believe Him and trust Him. You cannot believe Him if you do not love Him. You cannot love Him unless you know Him.
