Give Your Strength To God

Proverbs 31:1-9 contains some interesting wisdom written for kings. It specifically warns against giving your strength to women and alcohol. This is not the behaviour of a King. If you want to arm yourself and channel your inner priest-king, these words still ring true today. Its not gender specific advice. If you want to excel in life, you must be obsessed with purposeful pursuits. Your life should not revolve around your appetite for food, sex and sensual stimulation. Such distractions lead to a loss of focus and can derail individuals from fulfilling their God-given destinies.

Direct your vigor towards noble pursuits, devoting yourself to your divine assignments. This may involve engaging in acts of compassion, pursuing justice, or dedicating yourself to prayer and study of Scripture. By directing our energy and resources towards serving God and others, we find fulfilment and purpose that go beyond fleeting pleasures. After all, God-given energy should be directed towards God-given missions. There is more to life than eating and drinking. The purpose of your working life should not be to feed your insatiable desire for food, sex and other sensual stimulation. It should be more than that. It can be more than that.

In a world rife with distractions and temptations, the call to give our strength to the things of God remains steadfast. It requires intentional choices and a commitment to prioritizing spiritual growth and service. As we heed the wisdom of Proverbs 31:1-9, we recognize the importance of guarding our hearts and minds against the allure of transient pleasures. Once you do that, you rediscover boundless energy that can lead a million man movement, or drive a million-dollar business. Success requires unbroken concentration. Give your strength to God and focus on things above, you will see the light.
