Understand The World Around You!

And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven: this sore travail hath God given to the sons of man to be exercised therewith. Ecclesiastes 1:13 (KJV)

The New International Version quotes the opening Scripture as, “I applied my mind to study and to explore by wisdom all that is done under the heavens. What a heavy burden God has laid on mankind!” King Solomon was given divine wisdom and understanding to rule the nation of Israel. He was not idle with this gift but put it to use: he sought and searched to understand everything under the sun. Even though he found that it was a burden to seek and search, it eventually paid off in the end. Dear beloved, take the pain to seek and search the world around you and you will understand why things are happening the way they do. For example, if you understand how the weather operates, you will be able to prepare your land for sowing seeds. Also if you study and explore the way demons operate at night, you will wake up at midnight hours to pray for you to get answers because that is the time they scheme against you before morning comes. May you take charge of your environment and always be in dominion.
