TRUE SUCCESS IS OF THE SPIRIT
TO THE BIBLE: Proverbs 4:20-22 NIV
“My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body.”
Some people think all they need to succeed is to get the best education from an Ivy League college. But there’s more to success in life than that. While it’s wonderful to be well-educated, true success is of the Spirit. This accounts for why many of the world’s intelligentsia have a life that’s the complete opposite of true success. They made straight “A”s in school but ended up with a “D” in life. That’s why you can have a professor of finance whose account balance is in the negative, or a medical doctor dying from an incurable disease.
Life is spiritual, and true success is only achievable when you apply the principles of God’s Word. Only the Word of God guarantees your all-round prosperity, so give it first place in your life. Let no one deceive you and tell you that you can’t win them all; you can! Joshua 1:8 tells you how: “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
Proverbs 3:5 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.” In all that you do in life, let the Word guide you; study it and do what it says, and you’d always be a success.
Dear Father, thank you for giving me the understanding of the mystery of the kingdom of heaven. I submit myself to be continually educated by your Word; therefore, I declare that my life is a product of your Word, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
