It never ceases to amaze me how relevant and alive the Word of God continues to be! Here are a few scriptures/notes from Today’s Study.
- Commit Yourself to Instruction, attune your ears to hear words of knowledge. (Proverbs 23:12)
Proverbs 23:12 The people most likely to gain knowledge are those who are willing to listen. It is a sign of strength, not weakness, to pay attention to what others have to say. People who are eager to listen continue to learn and grow throughout their lives. If we refuse to become set in our ways, we can always expand the limits of our knowledge.
- A Wise man is mightier than a strong man, and a man of knowledge is more powerful than a strong man.(Proverbs 24:5)
Proverbs 24:5: The athlete who has wisdom-who assesses the situation and plan strategies-has an advantage over a physically stronger but unwise opponent.

When Jeremiah questioned God because of the trouble he faced, God asked how he ever expected to face big challenges if the little ones tired him out (Jeremiah 12:5). Don’t complain about your problems.The trouble you face today is training you to be strong for the difficult situations you will face in the future.
