"...I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go."(I have bolded the words for emphasis). I have sung the song, "He Leadeth Me" from our hymn book numerous times. But I'm fairly certain that I have never sang "He Profiteth Me". God helps us in all of our endeavors. If I am living righteously, seeking Him, whatever I put my hand to will be successful. Why? Because he teaches me how to do things the right way. He teaches me how to do things for His glory, and not my own. What a promise! If I have consulted Him about something, and follow Him all the way through it, then He will give me success in it, because if I have done these things, He will get the glory. So chef: open that restaurant (if God wills), carpenter: build that house (if God wills), musician: play that recital (if God wills), administrator: hire those workers (if God wills). Just be sure to consult Him first and every day.
