How Can We Get Success in Our Lives?
God cares about your success!
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [that your body] may keep well, even as [I know] your soul keeps well and prospers. 3 John 1:2 AMPC
Many people have asked me, “how can we get success in our lives?”, “what is the way to success in life?”, “what success looks like for a christian”.
God’s Success Plan
Everything required for your success has already been done by God. The works were finished from the foundation of the world. Now, when the Bible says that the works were finished from the foundation of the world, as in the scripture above, it’s important you recognize that this is the actual truth.
You don’t have to be defeated in life or give up hope. You don’t have to struggle for anything. No wonder the Bible says we’ve entered into God’s rest (Hebrews 4:10). Everything you need for success and prosperity has been made available. God wants you to know that you’re not the poor trying to be rich; you’re the rich discovering your inheritance. You’re not the sick trying to be healed, for the genes of divinity are in you.
God’s intention, every time He comes across a poor person, is to make him, and his generations after him, rich and powerful. He’s the expert at crafting “grass to grace” stories; He loves turning drifters into princes.
The Bible says, “He raises up the poor out of the dust and lifts up the needy from the ash heap, to make them sit with nobles and inherit the throne of glory…”(1 Samuel 2:8 AMPC).
The Lord Jesus Himself declared, “The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon Me, because He has anointed Me…to preach…(the Gospel) to the poor…” (Luke 4:18 AMPC)
He knows that when the poor receives the Gospel, it would catapult him from poverty into superabundance.
The Wealth Mentor
He’s saying to you today, “… I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way that you should go” (Isaiah 48:17 AMPC).
In essence, He’s the best Person to teach you about success in any endeavor, be it your relationships, a new course at school, or your emotions.
He goes further to say, “Oh, that you had hearkened to My commandments (His Word), then your peace and prosperity would have been like a flowing river, and your righteousness [the holiness and purity of the nation] like the [abundant] waves of the sea” (Isaiah 48:18 AMPC).
Peace of Prosperity
The word “peace” is from the Hebrew word “shalom”, which means “the peace of prosperity and well-being (a state of perfect soundness)”.
If you’ll only listen to Him and let Him teach you, your success, peace, and prosperity would flow endlessly like a river and you’ll never run dry!
Then like the Psalmist, you’ll say, “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.” (Psalm 23:1). Hallelujah!
Thus, no sickness, disease or infirmity can thrive in your body. You must have this consciousness. For the Christian, failure is absolutely unnecessary. If you’d pay attention to God’s Word and make certain to do what it says, you’ll never be defeated in life.
No wonder He says in 1 Corinthians 3:21 that all things are yours. He wants you to begin to enjoy all things. Nothing in this life is too good for you, for you’re the seed of Abraham. Relate with, and function in this truth today.
Dear Father, I thank you for your Word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path. My path is as a shining light that shines brighter and brighter and brighter to the perfect day.
Thank you for teaching me the principles of prosperity in your Word and for making me prosperous, in Jesus Name. Amen.
