November 23: Teach Me to Profit

Oh that you had listened to my commandments, then your prosperity would have been like a flowing river….” – Isaiah 48:18

Read: Deuteronomy 8:7-11, 18; Isaiah 48:16-18

One of the ministries of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer is to teach us to profit in life. Profit is defined as an advantageous gain or return; a benefit. The Holy Spirit wants to give us the advantage in every transaction of life if we listen to him. He helps us enjoy prosperity as a river when we follow His instructions. There are decisions you are making today. If you ask Him, He will be happy to show you the way of profit. He will help you gain. And yet many of us never consult with Him until there is an emergency. Do yourself a favor today: Invite Him to be a part of whatever you are doing. He will add real value to your life!

God is not poor. He lacks nothing. He has never failed or suffered loss. If you ever want to see a true picture of success, then look in the Bible. That is His Biography, and you won’t find failure anywhere around His Name. The Bible is also the right place to look if you want to know how to follow God’s example and be a true success in life. From chapter to chapter, we see God’s dealings with human beings like you and I and how their relationship with Him either predisposed them to be successful, or fail. When you determine to serve God and really do, He empowers you to prosper like He does. That’s what it means to be ‘Blessed’ Ask Him to show you the way of prosperity today. You cannot fail if you let Him help you. I see you gaining ground. I see you profiting. I see you blessed and prosperous in Jesus Name. Amen.
