For to the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy; but to the sinner he gives travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him who pleases God. This also is vanity and a chasing after wind.
What is it people really want in life? The answer is this: people want wisdom, courage, and confidence to live life well. We want wisdom and courage to face whatever situations come your way. We want wisdom, courage, and confidence to make the right choices about relationships and our careers. And we can have it all—plus the unmatchable joy of the LORD when we live in such a way that we please God.
But, you ask, what does it take to please God? You please God when you acknowledge His being–His existence—and live by faith and according to His Word.
Do you believe God exists and God rewards those who seek Him? If so, you can have all the wisdom, knowledge and joy God has to offer.
Prayer: God, help me keep on believing in You and to seek You always. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
