31 Therefore shall they eat ['akal] of the fruit [pariy] of their own way [derek], and be filled [saba`] with their own devices [mow`etsah]. KJV-Interlinear
31 therefore they shall eat the fruit of their way, and have their fill of their own devices. ESV
Those who are wise in their own eyes, those who ignore daily instruction, those who otherwise pretend interest in Bible doctrine, are left to their own devices and to the success of their own efforts and to their own demise, which is certain, and totally caused by themselves.
Therefore, God leaves them to their own efforts. God allows them to succeed or fail, as the world determines, because the framework of the world, which is also designed by God, leaves ample room for believers and unbelievers alike, to function in accordance with their own choices, within the framework of establishment principles.
However, life in this world is temporary. And anything that is temporary, obviously is not permanent.
Bible doctrine is permanent, and carries over into the next life.
Dedicating oneself only to the design of this world, is dedicating oneself to the possibility of temporary success, but guarantees permanent failure. And anyone simply looking around the world, can see that 99% of the people in the world, are not successful.
But, under the principles of common grace, everyone has the opportunity to pursue life in accordance with their own definition. But also, everyone is well-informed that life will end, and their choices, if not for God, will come back to haunt them at the end of their life.
Study [by instruction],
to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]
a workman [student]
that need not be ashamed [ignorant],
rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]
the word of truth [Bible doctrine].
If you can dream and not make dreams your master,
If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,
If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,
If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,
Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.
These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever. To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
