The accepted convention of the world is to be curious or worldly wisdom, always seeking to investigate others, figure out more about how the world functions, lay out plans and strategies for the future to control others and enrich oneself but this is the way of Edom
- Ecclesiasticus 3:23 | Be not curious in unnecessary matters: for more things are shewed unto thee than men understand.
- Psalms 64:5 | They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them? 6They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
The only matter of importance to Israelites is to diligently seek the Most High Yahawah first and foremost through out thoughts and actions daily. At the smallest and largest scale, the rest will fall into place as the Most High sees fit. The saying that “God helps those who helps themselves” is a perversion of the truth.
- Proverbs 8:34 | Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
- Matthew 6:33 | Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
And if your circumstance is challenging, bear it with patience.
- Ecclesiasticus 2:1 | My son, if thou come to serve the Lord, prepare thy soul for temptation. 2Set thy heart aright, and constantly endure, and make not haste in time of trouble. 3Cleave unto him, and depart not away, that thou mayest be increased at thy last end. 4Whatsoever is brought upon thee take cheerfully, and be patient when thou art changed to a low estate. 5For gold is tried in the fire, and acceptable men in the furnace of adversity.
And as it relates to the wisdom and possessions of this world, focus on being content with what you have.
- Hebrews 13:5 | Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
