 The face of a man

To every obstacle there is a corresponding key. God uses each of the faces to solve various problems.

Ezekiel in his vision first sees the face of a man. This is because 90% of the problems on earth are solved by God using human intelligence. Miracles are special interventions of God into man's situation. Blessing is a divine empowerment based on rules and intelligence to understand how things work. In the whole bible there are very few miracles for thousands of thousands of people. God didn't carry on bringing food miraculously to his people. But he gave them smart natural intelligence which allowed them to work and be able to put food on their tables. 90% of life is lived on wisdom. The first requirement is to be transformed by the renewal of the mind. Be smart and use your mind - your life will be changed by this.

Life is built by the right and correct application of knowledge (wisdom). Many stay only on prayer but do not do or apply what God told them during prayer. God solves problem through intelligence. Knowledge is what fills our lives with rare and beautiful treasures. Know the word and your environment. You can be rich in one particular section of life but that is not all, read and learn as well about other areas of life. Pursue knowledge, educate yourself and enrich your vocabulary. A rich man in vocabulary can be poor today but he stands a better chance to turn life around. When you think, don't be quick to speak; you might be betrayed by your ignorance.
