Today’s bible verse challenges us to look inwards: Are there changes you need to make within your own self? Are there poor choices you need to stop making? Are there relationships you need to get out of?
BIBLE STUDY | Proverbs 19:3 NLT | “People ruin their lives by their own foolishness and then are angry at the LORD.”
You see, a lot of our problems are caused by us. That is, we bring them upon ourselves when we make terrible choices. For example:
When we connect with the wrong people. When we stay in places that hurt and abuse us. When we fail to improve our knowledge of things. When we neglect our relationship with God. When we indulge in sinful behaviors.
But, a lot of times, instead of taking responsibility for our foolishness, we blame God, or the devil, or our parents, or the government; anyone but ourselves.
I believe strongly that we should constantly examine ourselves. Every now and then, look inwards. Ask yourself, “How am I sabotaging my own success in life?” Ask yourself, “What am I doing that is making me not to go forward in life?”
When you identify such things, ask the Holy Spirit help you stop them, and to help you do the right things for yourself.
If you do this on a regular basis, you will eventually become very successful in life. This is a very powerful secret to becoming very successful in life.
Pray with me:
OH LORD, CLEANSE ME TODAY OF ALL FOOLISHNESS THAT IS RUINING MY LIFE, IN JESUS NAME!
