And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever. 1 Chronicles 28:9
It is no longer news that the entire world seek advice. Everyone has been on the search for one advice that will liberate and give an assurance for success. Success is one thing that everyone wants urgently and critically. I am sure that even you my esteemed reader seeks success in all ramifications. It is possible that you have read several tips to success or step by step guide to deliver success. What if you have just one advice to deliver success.
It is possible that the tips for success and step by step guide worked but I can assure you that its not forever. If you read the tips or guide for success written ten years ago and apply it, it is not certain that you will end up successful. The change in times, seasons and orientation affects some of these tips and guides. Interestingly, there is an advice that will ensure success. This singular advice has survived centuries and its still working.
Its a single advice and not a set of rules or principles. If you find that one advice to succeed in all ramifications of life, won’t you yield to that advice? Won’t that advice be worth knowing and sharing with your loved ones? I trust it is worth knowing and following. This singular advice is what I have tagged the best advice ever. I am trusting God, the father of all spirits to engraft this advice into your spirit.
The advice can be seen in the farewell message of David to Solomon. David was exiting the earth and Solomon was to come into his place as a king and leader. David started his advice to Solomon by telling him to know God. The keyword “know” is very important. Which kind of God was he to know, the God of his fathers. That means the one whom David had established a covenant with. This is important for Solomon to be able to take advantage of the covenant with God.
If you are yet to know God, you have not started your journey to be successful. You can’t succeed without God or god. That’s why David made an emphasy on the God of his father. If you really need true success, you must begin by knowing God. Be careful not think that any god can offer you success. True success can only be found in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. That’s the God of the fathers David was talking about.
Knowing God is not just about having head knowledge of who God is or who God is not. That kind of knowledge about God won’t help you. You need a personal knowledge of who God is to you. You need a personal relationship with God. For instance, i realized God is my father in heaven and not just a God. So, who is God to you? For some, God is a policeman trying to catch them for their sins. As we continue in this series, I challenge you to seek God and know Him.
To be continued…
