“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Obedience is the fountain from which blessings flow, and Faith is the springboard of success.
No amount of education can give you the kind of wisdom and knowledge God possesses. Though beneficial, knowledge void of God’s illumination does not guarantee you will get the results you desire.
To acknowledge God, however, in all your decisions means your future rests in the hand of Him who knows the future, the pitfalls and how to avoid them.
Obedience and Faith are a combination that decreases your failure rate.
