Do you want to have more of what you need?
Do you want to have more good things in life?
Are you tired of lack and do you want it out of your life for good?
If you are, then you need to follow some God given principles for success.
Here they are:
1. Seek Him. The Bible says if you seek first the kingdom of God, all these things shall be added unto you. What things?
Well, what do you want? Do you want more money? You can have that. But is green paper really what you want? Isn’t it really the things that money can buy that you are after? What good is money if it can’t be used to get what you really need? I think that some people are so tuned into money that they have made the actual green paper bills an idol. Money is only worth it’s purchasing value. If you had a stack of money and it was not worth anything in the economy, then what good would it do you?
2. Identify what it is that you really want. Some people say that they want to be successful, but what does that mean? Identify exactly what success means to you.
Go ahead….take a moment and think about that.
Did you take a moment? Good. Now, think about that thing you want and imagine yourself holding it in your hand. Can you do that? If you can’t, then it’s for one of two reasons. Either you don’t know what it is, or it’s an intangible thing….like love.
If it’s something that you can hold in your hand, then unless it’s a person, you can’t take it to heaven when you die.
Let me tell you a really good example of someone who thought that they were successful, but they weren’t. Someone earned a million dollars, but then they died. And they didn’t know Jesus. The Bible says “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”
Would you call that person successful?
