Pondering the Principles of Proverbs
For some, it is measured in money. For others it might be measured in quality of life. For yet others, something entirely different.
Whatever your definition of and measure of SUCCESS, may this article serve to remind you of the true path to reach that particular pinnacle.
As for me, I would seek God, and to God would I commit my cause, [Job 5:8 ESV]
Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act. [Psa 37:4-5 ESV]
Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved. [Psa 55:22 ESV]
25 Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 34 "Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. [Mat 6:25-34 ESV]
...do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. [Phl 4:6 ESV]
...casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. [1Pe 5:7 ESV]
You will decide on a matter, and it will be established for you, and light will shine on your ways. [Job 22:28 ESV]
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. [Jos 1:8 ESV]
