A young woman who is on the pursuit to her destiny.. Join me! 😊
A prayerful man is a powerful man. Today I encourage myself & you, to spend some time communicating with God. A good relationship is built on communication. If you claim to be in a relationship with God, spend some time talking with Him and listening to Him. It will empower you to go on with your day, trust me!
As I studied this scripture, I thought to myself; "what does it mean to be a bondservant of Christ?" I see it in a lot of books written by Apostle Paul that he was a bondservant of Christ. I keep asking myself what is the difference between a regular servant and a bondservant. I did some research and found that a bondservant is someone who served without the expectation of receiving wages as apposed to a servant who serves expecting something out of it. Paul was so successful merely because he served Christ out of his heart and not for eye service. Today it is my prayer for myself and for you all that we become bondservants of Christ. That we serve and help build the kingdom of God not merely for what we can get out of it but just because we love God and want to please Him and expand His kingdom!!
Genesis 1:1, "In the beginning, God" I know it is written exactly like that but that is how I view my bible. In the beginning God. In other words, in order for anything to be successful in your life you gotta have God be the beginning and center of it. If you put God first you will never be last!
A wise person will hear this word and listen, learn from it and live by it. A wise person will also attain wise counsel. Another word for counsel is advice and it very foolish for a person to gain wisdom from people who are living bad lifestyles and try and live by it. If you want to walk in victory, harken to wise advice from people who are where you want to be in life.
A little background on Solomon. Solomon was a mighty man of God who had the opportunity to ask God for anything that he wanted and instead of him choosing money or fame or popularity, Solomon chose to have wisdom to live his life and lead the people. Because of his choice God blessed him with everything else (that's the real definition of seek ye first the kingdom of God and it's righteousness and all other things shall be added unto you). So yes, Solomon chose wisdom and because of that he gained everything else in life (money, popularity and etc.). Now he has come up with a book entitled Proverbs which will teach people like you and I, how to live your life and be filled with divine wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Another word for Proverbs or the meaning of Proverbs is simply: stating a general truth or giving a piece of advice, and that is what Solomon is seeking to do in this book.
So this month I will be studying the book of proverbs. One chapter a day and sharing my notes and studies with you all 😊.

I will also be reading other books but for my studies I want to share proverbs with you all so join me 😊 today will be on chapter 1.
