TO THE BIBLE: Psalm 1:1-3 NASB
“How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers.”
Karen recognized that her top priority was to share the Gospel with her schoolmates, and she did this with great commitment. However, she also wanted to be an ‘’A’ student at school, and sometimes found herself torn between the choices of studying her books or preaching to her classmates. She asked the Lord for His guidance, and He helped her by planning her study times so she could reach out effectively to others around her with the Gospel.
God truly wants His fire burning within you; He loves to see you doing His work with passion and diligence. But He also wants you to excel in other areas of your life, including your academics. Hence, you must see your academic work as an opportunity to further; the excellence of God within you.
Meditating on God’s Word is the key to becoming an all-round success. According to Psalm 1, when you meditate consistently on the Word, it literally transforms you into a fruitful and productive person, such that whatever you do prospers. So, if you make up your mind today to be an “A” student, the Spirit of God will surely help you accomplish your aim. In fact, He’ll give you wisdom and supernatural guidance for success not only in your academics, but also in every other area you trust Him for help, be it sports, the creative arts, or the sciences. Trust Him today; meditate in His Word, and He’ll make you a winner and a success all-round.
