We all want a blessed, peaceful and prosperous New Year, but the recipe many are trying is bogus and sure to fail within the first or second month of this year. Here is a time-tested recipe from God Himself: “Blessed are those who listen to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway”. Pro. 8:34. This recipe is simple: LISTEN TO THE LORD! How? Two simple steps: 1. Keep watch daily at my doors. Doors are meant to go in and out, so you must go daily to meet with the Lord. 2. Wait at my doorway.
When you come into the presence of the Lord, don’t be in a hurry to get out until He has spoken, and you heard Him clearly. The Bible is where you will encounter God and He will speak to you as you read it reverently with an open heart to understand and obey His instructions. Jesus Christ used this recipe all the time: “Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed”. Mark 1:35. When you have met with the Lord early, then you can go on your way all day and “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isa. 30:21. Blessings and success are guaranteed.
