God views success as simple to achieve and equally simple for Him to measure. If we are going to succeed in things that really matter, we must follow the instructions for life found in scriptures, so here are three biblical rules for success; First, look it up! “This Book OF lAW SHALL NOT DEPART FROM YOUR MOUTH” or as the American Express Credit Card Company likes to say;
“Don’t leave home without it!” “success entails making the study of God’s word a constant part of our life This may mean a radical change for you. Ninety percent(90%) of Americans own a bibble. Fiftypercent(50%) never read it, including twenty-three percent(23%) of all followers of Christ. And only eighteen percent(18%) read it everyday.
Imagine going to a doctor when you are sick and getting a prescription that can make you well, but you only take it once a week, or when you feel like taking it, or never at all. Would you blame the doctor for not getting well? some of us do that with God: “Lord, why has this happened to me? I don’t understand it” Would you say the medicine doesn’t work? Not if you do not take it. “My people perish for lack of knowledge”(Hosea 4:6) so the word for you today is: Get into God’d word and get it into you!
What have you really been up to? Are you busy working yourself out on purpose of others to please them that you forget yours? Or have you been journeying persistently on the purpose you have set for yourself? Both may seem flourishing and point you are a goal achiever, but as long as those goals are not found in your predestined purpose, you are headed for an unfulfilled end.
Ask God to reveal your purpose to you, let Him guide you and you will not go wrong.
