GLORIOUS GRACE – SUCCESS
People often see success as the attainment of physical achievements that puts you ahead of the pack, but in God’s view success must have both present and eternal value.
In our contemporary time, most people and even someChristians believes that success is a product of hard work and invariably those who fails are lazy. But the book of Ecclesiastes 11 makes us to understand, that the race is not to the swift, nor bread to the skilled neither battle to the strong. Romans 9 v 16 it’s not of him that wills, nor of him that runs but of God who shows mercy. Therefore, it means you need the grace of God in order to have a good and enduring success.
WAYS OF ACHIEVING GOOD SUCCESS:
By walking in His way: Psalm 1 v 1-3. There is a way that seems right but the end of it is destruction, but the way of God leads to life everlasting. Don’t be wise in your sight.
By reading and acting on His word: Joshua 1 v 8. Thereforeeveryone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. Matthew 7 v 24
By prayer: Nehemiah 1 v 11, 2 Chronicle 26 v5 As long as you are willing to seek the face of God you will succeed and your success will be everlasting.
It’s the grace of God that brings success not of our own effort. There are many success in the world today that doesn’t have generational value and this is because many kept using their wisdom instead of relying on God.
God bless you
