Edifier du Jour-1 Kings 2:1-4(NASB)
1 As David's time to die drew near, he charged Solomon his son, saying, 2 "I am going the way of all the earth. Be strong, therefore, and show yourself a man. 3 "Keep the charge of the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes, His commandments, His ordinances, and His testimonies, according to what is written in the Law of Moses, that you may succeed in all that you do and wherever you turn, 4 so that the LORD may carry out His promise which He spoke concerning me, saying, 'If your sons are careful of their way, to walk before Me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, you shall not lack a man on the throne of Israel.'
The command is easier for the modern believer, for a simplified system came in with Jesus' death. We no longer have to worry about sacrifices, but I thing that the core of what David said here applies to the modern believer; if we follow God, we will succeed in what He has for us to do. That doesn't mean we won't have a hangnail or a fender-bender along the way, but on things that are important to God, we will succeed if we stay close to Him.
