Recognizing the importance of skill development and God's involvement, you can find wisdom and guidance in the Bible. First off, it's important to understand that skill is not simply a product of human effort; it is a gift from God. In Exodus 31:3, we read about Bezalel, a skilled craftsman who was divinely appointed and filled with the Spirit of God to be able to work with skill in various crafts. This highlights the biblical understanding that skill is not solely a result of human effort, but is a divine gift from God Himself. Therefore, by seeking God's guidance and relying on His grace, you can tap into the source of all skill. The K.I.S.S. ~ Skill will bring success! Now, the process of gaining skill requires consistent effort, dedication, and a desire to continually learn. Proverbs 2:2-6 speaks of the importance of diligently seeking wisdom, understanding, and knowledge. By immersing yourself in the study of God's Word and seeking His guidance through prayer, you open yourself up to the possibility of acquiring skill in various areas of your life. Furthermore, Scripture emphasizes the role of God as our ultimate source of strength. Philippians 4:13 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. You are to rely on God's power, not rest in your own strength. So, in situations where more strength is needed, you can trust in God's provision and find comfort in the knowledge that He will equip you for success. God's strength becomes the foundation upon which your skill is built. By surrendering your life to God and submitting your desires and plans to His will, you place yourself in a position to receive His guidance, wisdom, and strength. Proverbs 3:5-6 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths. When you acknowledge God in all our ways, He will make our paths straight, leading you towards skillful living and ultimately, success. Remember that skillfulness, in the Biblical context, extends beyond worldly success and achievements. It includes living a life of integrity, using your skills to serve others, and glorifying God through your actions. Colossians 3:23-24 "23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." When you strive to develop your skills with a heart oriented towards honoring God, success becomes more about the impact you have on others and fulfilling your higher purpose, your calling. Skill is a gift from God, and through His guidance and strength, you are able to develop and enhance your abilities. By diligently seeking wisdom, relying on God's strength, and aligning your life with His will, you can experience skillful living that leads to lasting success, not only in the worldly sense but also in your spiritual journey. “If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed, but skill will bring success.“ Ecclesiastes 10:10 "Be present.
