Your daily dose of Proverbs:
"The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge;
the ears of the wise seek it out" - 18:15.
You cannot be passive and serve the Lord's purpose. Instead, you must employ constructive waiting and seek out what you need to do and become to succeed in the future while you wait for your future to unfold. What are you doing to acquire knowledge and improve at what you do and who you are? What books are you reading? What classes are you taking? Read Daniel 1 and see how Daniel prepared himself spiritually and practically for successful work in Babylon; then go do the same.
