"I, the Lord, teach you what is for your good, and lead you on the way you should go." Isaiah 48:17
Many people pray. Many people meditate. But what many do not realize is prayer and obedience needs to go hand in hand. The following verse in Isaiah 48 goes like this: "If you would listen to my commands, your prosperity would be like a river..."
How many of us would like to be prosperous? This is what God promises us if we listen to Him and heed His counsels. God prospers men and women who turn to Him daily and seek to follow His ways. Prosperity is the state of flourishing, of fruitfulness, not only financially, but more importantly, spiritually. It is when we see our family, our work, our relationships, thriving and growing. We are, after all, connected to the Vine, the giver of life, the giver of every good thing when we pray and obey!
Lord, may I seek You daily. May I read Your Word, listen to Your still, small voice and step by step, follow where You lead!
