Reference: 1 Kings 2:1-4,10-12
1 Kings 2:3 Obey the laws of God and follow all his ways; keep each of his commands written in the law of Moses so that you will prosper in everything you do, wherever you turn.
Stock markets thrive on certainty, therefore, any hint of uncertainty upsets the balance of things. Thus, if traders had the opportunity to determine how things would be, certainty in the direction and influence of market factors would be much appreciated. That is just economics but in the context of today’s text, it is the concept explored.
We read David’s final instruction to Solomon and in his final words, he throws in a tip that guarantees a 100% success rate. An idea that suggests the opportunity to operate with zero uncertainty and guaranteed prosperity in EVERYTHING done regardless of ones LOCATION. That my dear, is gold.
The tip provided is:
‘Do what God tells you. Walk in the paths he shows you: Follow His life-map absolutely, keep an eye out for the signposts, his course for life set out in the revelation to Moses;(vs 3).
In effect, obedience to God and trust to follow his leading is the key to guaranteed prosperity in all things and at all places. If we can do this, we will be guaranteed unparalleled success in every facet of life.
