Preparation to Become Successful
Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil. (Proverbs 5:26-27)
How to walk in this life successfully and with care? Well, the answer is by pondering first your motives and your ways. You need to consider or check your heart and your going. Mistakes come when we forget and fail to do this very simple principle. God’s wisdom has a great and important impact in our daily walk. God’s wisdom thru the Scripture gives us right motive and leads us to the right path. God’s wisdom is so perfect (Psalm 119) that if we live in line with the Scriptures, the surety of excellence in God’s sight is the by product (Philippians 1:9-10).
So friend, as we do or work things out, consider these things in mind:
- 1. Is my motive right?
- 2. Is my going right?
- 3. Do I have God’s wisdom (Bible) to direct me?
- 4. Will the Lord be glorified in this? Or this is just a hidden desire of my ego?
As you consider these things, then ponder to walk.
