Are you applying the wisdom PRINCIPLES from the book (The Bible) that cannot lie?
What is a PRINCIPLE?
Define: Spiritual principles are the path laid out for experiencing our lives free of unnecessary suffering, with strength and resilience to experience the pain and fear that must be walked through as a part of life.
When God speaks to you through His Word, he is talking to the real you, YOUR SPIRIT man. This is who should dominate your flesh NOT the other way around.
The born again believer’s job is to make our heads (will, emotions, intellect and imaginations) conform to the complete will of God by renewing our minds daily with the Word of Truth that is able to heal the dark, unhealed places in us. Only then can one recover himself from what the enemy has planned for them. So jot down what you give most of your attention to. (e.g. internet, news, gossip, bible intake only and no time with unbelievers sharing your life like Jesus and his disciples did, or foolishness avoiding every kind of evil that teaches us to live contrary to the teachings of Christ)
Let’s learn some wisdom for today and life…
- Work hard, and you will have a lot of food; waste time, and you will have a lot of trouble. [Proverbs 28:11]
Diligence in life is the key to wealth. It is not how much you make it is learning the purpose of prosperity that you have been entrusted with by God. People who say that there is no God are fools. The five different types of fools are the naïve, the stubborn, the sensual (selfish), the scorner (cynical), and the steadfast (downright mean.) We are all fools in one way or another. Thankfully, God gives counsel to each type of fool in the Bible.
