Comparing what Jesus and the apostles did with what others are doing is always a good idea. What Did Jesus Do, or WDJD for short? When what others do doesn’t line up with what Jesus did, you’ll know something is off.
There are periods in life when it might seem that God has forgotten us or we feel like life is getting the best of us—yes, this life can be a mess, but please do not stress. Certain things and experiences can be stressful, but don’t give up, don’t worry, and have faith that you’ll win in the end.
Wisdom strengthens and protects the wise (Ecclesiastes 7:19). “The proof of wisdom is in the actions it produces” (Matthew 11:19 CJB). So I encourage you to get wisdom. After all, I am wisdom, I empower you with good sense!
You did not ask for selfish personal gain: riches, wealth, honor, the deaths of your enemies, or a long life. Instead, you asked for godly wisdom and knowledge to rule My people, over whom I have made you king. (The Voice)
Use the Bible as your life coach and for life advice. Learn to hunger for the word of God. Binge on it and live by it! Hopefully, you’ll agree that God’s Word is the best soul food!
If you believe the Lord is supreme and our creator. Then you have many reasons to respect God. He is to be feared and revered/respected; do you agree? I cannot stress the importance of the fear of and respect for God; it is absolutely good advice for life. Learn to fear, honor, worship, obey, and give respect to God our Lord.
Continue to accept personal responsibility, because God will hold you accountable for what you do in this life. The Scriptures give an example in Ezekiel 18, it begins with a proverb ‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge’. The child will no longer be held responsible or accountable for the sins of the parent [see Ezekiel 18:1-4].
