Joshua Iginla Devotional – Bible Passage: Proverbs-2: 1-11 – My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;
Joshua Iginla: If you want lasting greatness, you must mind your future.
2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;
3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.
9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.
10 When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
11 Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee
Meditation: Psalm 132:12
“If your sons will keep my covenant And my testimony which I shall teach them, Their sons also shall sit upon your throne forevermoreâ€
If you want lasting greatness, you must mind your future. That is why in this first month of the year, we are studying the life of David as a prototype of divine greatness. The Bible is a book of examples that you can use as a guide to achieve or replicate any success story recorded there.
When you already know the answer to an examination question, you have no excuse to fail. The Bible is an ‘expo’ for the exams of life, which if you study with the help of the Holy Spirit, you won’t fail. “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night and shall observe to do according to all that is written in it.
Then you will make your way prosperous and you will have good success” Joshua 1:8. 1 asked the Holy Ghost, “How is it that David was so great, so blessed and arrayed with such glory? What is his secret?” The Holy Spirit showed me seven master keys which if you apply correctly in your life; you also will be as unstoppable as David was.
