Prov. 4:7-8 "For skillful and godly Wisdom is the principal thing. Prize Wisdom highly and exalt her, and she will exalt and promote you; she will bring you to honor when you embrace her."
I want to tell you the only real secret to getting ahead in this world. It's simple. Put the Word of God first place in your daily life.
But when you understand what I mean, it could be a revelation to you.
You see, the Bible is not just a textbook, a storybook or a history book. It's a handbook for living. It's the wisdom of Almighty God written down so that you can apply it to your everyday circumstances.
God says that Wisdom is the "principal thing." Principal means "first in importance." That means the Word of God needs to occupy the place of highest importance in all of your activities. I know from experience what an impact that can have on your life.
Spending some time every day reading something in the New Testament or Palms or Proverbs will change your life.
Set aside a little time to read, we must make time to spend time with the Lord in His Word, It will be transforming.
You'll be amazed at what happens in your life too, if you give God's Word priority. But let me warn you, don't wait until you think you have the time. Satan will see to it that you never do.
Just do like I did and set other things aside. Invest your time in the Word first and that investment will soon be paying off in every area of your life.
Enjoy your life in Christ. He loves you!
Romans 12:1 I renew my mind daily in the Word of God so that I can prove what is that good and acceptable will of God.
