Bible Study & Devotional Day 42
Guiding Scripture: Proverbs 8:33-36, “Listen to my instruction and be wise;
do not disregard it.
34 Blessed are those who listen to me,
watching daily at my doors,
waiting at my doorway.
35 For those who find me find life
and receive favor from the Lord.
36 But those who fail to find me harm themselves;
all who hate me love death.”
🔴 Benefits of Faithful Living
written by: Torrie Slaughter
- How do we benefit from faithful living?
- Why is it essential to our spiritual growth?
We receive an advantage by remaining loyal to pursuing a godly lifestyle.
The profit is immeasurable and has eternal rewards. Wisdom declares we will obtain favor from the Lord. We receive a blessing by listening, watching, and waiting on our God.
Essential to Spiritual Growth:
As you dive deeper into God’s Word, expect the spiritual attacks to increase. Lean into wisdom and listen to the Holy Spirit. God will not let you wander though you may feel like He is far away. Remember to humble yourself and keep giving praise, praying through everything, and declaring God’s truth over every situation. If you desire a different outcome, you must change your approach.
The Holy Spirit can reveal your weaknesses and strengths. When God sends people to come alongside you to increase His kingdom, don’t arrogantly turn them away. The character and skill set they have will compliment yours. God does nothing by mistake or for His amusement. We may use everything our Lord blesses us to have to glorify Him.
