“He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless” (Proverbs 2:7)
My dear friend, today’s promise is from Proverbs 2:7, “He (God) holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless.” Today we remember the father of our nation, Mahatma Gandhi. We remember his sacrifice for the nation. It was the sacrifice of Jesus through His love that was close to his heart. The victory that Jesus won on the cross through His love inspired Him to follow a sacrificial life. That’s why he introduced and established the satyagraha for victory through love, patience and humility. He believed in prayer. May God give us grace to continue to care for our nation and may God give us an upright heart. The Bible says God gives us victory when we are upright. May God give you victory as you have an upright heart before God.
We also read, “For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless” (Psalm 84:11). Yes every good thing will come to those who walk uprightly. The Bible also says, God helps those who are upright. For we read, “But the men said to Saul, “Should Jonathan die-he who has brought about this great deliverance in Israel? Never! As surely as the LORD lives, not a hair of his head will fall to the ground, for he did this today with God’s help.” So the men rescued Jonathan, and he was not put to death.” The passage talks about Jonathan. He risked his life for the people so God stood with him and saved him. It was because of God’s help that he was victorious. God helped him because of his upright heart.
Even in your work as you are upright, God will help you and fight your battles. As you are upright God will give you victory. God will give all the provisions for your life because you are upright. For this He gives you wisdom according to Proverbs 2:7. He will teach you to succeed for in Him are the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. For Bible says, “in whom (Jesus) are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3).Yes, wisdom is no one else than Jesus Christ. He is the treasure of wisdom and knowledge. May God give you the wisdom to walk uprightly and to have victory, provisions and God’s presence in everything you do.
Bless me with the grace to walk uprightly before You. Let all the blessings of uprightness come upon me. Lead me to see success in all my endeavours. Provide everything for me. Help me and teach me Your wisdom so that I will be victorious.
In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.
