You in you are better and healthier than you see. Therefore, work smarter to allow you to emerge. BIBLE READING: Proverbs 4:1-27.
God designed you to get better with time. Your present state may be good, but your future state is ordained to be better as:
👉🏾Every living thing increases.
👉🏾Every living thing multiples.
👉🏾And every living thing grows.
If you are not increasing in knowledge, wisdom, and results; if you are not multiplying in impacts and outcomes; and if you are not growing, you are dead – even though you may still be breathing.
So, work smarter so that the better you in you will emerge like a shining light that gets brighter every passing day. Proverbs 4:18 _But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
👉🏾Is your life getting better or stagnated at the same spot?
👉🏾Is your finance getting better or worse with the current economic pressures?
👉🏾Is your walk with God getting better or worse with current global decay?
👉🏾Is the standard of your living, career, family, and business getting better?
You are ordained to get better with time. If in the last year, you have not improved from where you were, you have lost a whole year, because you lack how to work smarter.
God ordained you to move from a student to a teacher; an apprentice to a worker, borrower to a giver, tenant to a landlord, passenger to a driver, single to married, etc. You must make it happen to fulfill destiny.
Like I commonly say, if at 40 you are still a tenant, have no degree, have no car, have no real investments, you are slow. There’s a lot more you can do, moving forward. You need to work smarter to get better.
What must you do to get better every single day?
🎯1. Hear the instructions of your earthly and spiritual fathers, and do them. Proverbs 4:1 Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know to understand. Read these things, meditate on them, and do them. They can change your life completely.
🎯2. Find a mentor to teach you and retain the words you hear. Proverbs 4:4. He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments and live.
✍🏼Start by identifying areas of your life that need immediate improvement – career, ministry, finances, marital life, etc.
✍🏼Then, find a mentor who will help you improve in those identified areas.
✍🏼Pursue the mentor to teach and train you.
✍🏼Take the mentoring process, do your assignments.
🎯3. Get wisdom through reading, studying, meditation and fellowships with the wise. Proverbs 4:7. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
How many chapters of the Bible do you read daily, how many books have you read this year? Get busy. Read to get better.
🎯4. Do not be part of evil – yahoo yahoo, cults, kidnapping, etc. Proverbs 4:14. Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. They may deliver quick results, but they also result in quick punishments here on earth and in eternity.
🎯5. Give attention to the things you hear, read and see daily. Proverbs 4:20. My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Not readers or hearers are blessed, but DOERS. So, give attention and do them.
🎯6. Protect your heart and mind, and watch what enters them. Proverbs 4:23. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Don’t allow junks into your mind. Also, don’t leave your mind idle – as idleness is a threat to sanity!
🎯7. Watch your tongue and speak right. Proverbs 4:24. Put away from thee a forward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. Be mindful of what you say, how you say it when you say it, and to whom you say it. Words are life. And right words are very forcible and powerful.
🎯8. Maintain focus on where you are heading. Proverbs 4:25. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Avoid all forms of distractions – men, internet, computer, cellular phones, etc.
Try not to be a jack of all trades. Work to be an expert and the best in something.
☑️Keep at it – even when you feel like quitting. Proverbs 4:27. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil. Quitters never win, and winners never quit.
🎯9. Watch your steps – what you do and where you go. Proverbs 4:26. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Ensure that every step takes you closer to your dream and further away from your pains.
Finding and doing what is expected ensures better life, health, prosperity, and longevity. Proverbs 4:22. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
So, allow you to emerge from today. Prayer. Lord, help me to work with you to bring out the better me. Be blessed. Stay blessed. 🙏🏼 ©️The Excellent Ministry 2021
