Joshua 1:8 KJV
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
Important Points to Note:
1. It is God’s desire that the believer lives an excelling life (John 10:10, Pro 4:18).
God desires that the believer’s life captures and reveals His Glory all-round.
John 10:10 KJV
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.
Proverbs 4:18 KJV
But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
Isaiah 51:2 KJV
Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.
Genesis 24:1 KJV
God expects the believer’s life to manifest His Glory and Power.
The Destiny of every believer in Christ Jesus is a successful life – a life that captures the Glory of God in all aspects.
Your life is glorious and successful to the degree to which it captures the different dimensions of God – His Glory, His Power, and His Character.
It is not within the will of God for the believer to live a life of perpetual shame and reproach.
In God’s design, your excelling should be progressive. The current version of you should exceed your previous version.
When believers succeed, it brings Glory to God.
Every area of the believer’s life requires proper attention to yield results and bring Glory to God.
This includes the area of kingdom success.
Galatians 1:24 KJV
And they glorified God in me.
It is important to understand that Kingdom success does not connote a godless and mundane pursuit of material things that alienates Jesus and His Word.
Instead, it is a sincere desire to tap into the blessings of God, to excel in God’s way, and to become a channel of blessings to lives.
Kingdom success is a channel of propagating the Gospel of Christ.
Matthew 25:14-30 KJV
The mistake is that you don’t bury talents you bury seeds.
His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
Your current situation does not define your destiny. It is okay to start small but with time and a consistent walk with God, God expects us to replicate valuable Kingdom results.
Bad success is any kind of result that makes you give up your love for God in pursuit of it.
It is any kind of success that is not fueled by a genuine desire to be a blessing to men.
Bad success comes in exchange for your soul. It leads to a decline in your spiritual life.
Two Indices to Measure Bad Success :
1. It demands the decline or complete death of your spiritual fervency in Christ.
2. It requires that you to inflict pain and hurt on others.
Believers must never be in pursuit of any kind of success that negatively affects their spiritual life or causes them to inflict pain on others – Bad success.
Good success is the kind of success that ultimately brings Glory to God and allows the believer’s life and result to become a blessing and an inspiration to generations.
In God’s design, every area of a believer’s life should manifest His glory and His power.
The unity of destiny is TIME. Time does not go backward it goes forward.
Ephesians 2:10 KJV
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
Our success in this kingdom brings glory to God John 15:8
Another word for much fruit is notable results. John 15:16
Becoming successful is ministry.
Job 38:33 KJV
Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?
Leviticus 9:6 KJV
And Moses said This is the thing which the Lord commanded that ye should do: and the glory of the Lord shall appear unto you.
Success is based on laws and principles. (Job 38:33, Lev 9:6). To achieve good success, you must subscribe and adhere to the patterns of God
For you to experience the Glory of God in your life, there are patterns you must keep (Lev 9:6).
The manifestation of the Glory of God is an attestation to the fact that His pattern has been followed. When you compromise there is no guarantee that God’s Glory will be made manifest.
2 Chronicles 26:5 KJV
And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper.
Two Keys That Make For The Good Success Of The Believer:
1) The “God-First” Principle (Gen 1:1) 2 Chronicles 26:3-5
The position you place God in your life matters. To experience Good success, God must be at the epicenter of your life.
2) The Law of Mental Transformation (2 Cor 10:4-6)
Your mind is a gift from God that is connected to your success in life and destiny.
The quality of a man’s life is tied to his mindset
Our mindset defines our limit and our possibilities in life.
A mindset is
1. A sustain thinking pattern.
2. An ideology a view point.
Your ultimate desire as a believer should be to bring glory to God and to be a generational blessing. This is the kind of success God desires for the believer.
Leviticus 9:6 KJV
“And Moses said, This is the thing which the Lord commanded that ye should do: and the glory of the Lord shall appear unto you.”
Our state of total surrender to God in every aspect of our lives as believers move His Mighty Hand over our situations.
Only God can give man rest roundabout. The chaos present in the life of men shows rebellion to the majestic power of Elohim.
At every point in time, the principle of putting God first is non-negotiable for the believer who will thrive, last, and stand the test of time in this world (John 15:5).
A sustained MINDSET defines the quality and patterns of a man’s life.
John 15:5 KJV
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
The quality of a man’s life is tied to his mindset.
A mindset is a sustained thinking pattern, an ideology; a lens, and the vista (perspective) from which one views life.
Your mindset defines your limit and possibilities in life.
A stronghold is a faulty mindset that has been fortified by the presence of demon spirits to keep the victim thinking that way.
Mindsets are formed by:
• Cultural experiences
• Past circumstances
• Family background
It is your responsibility to edit your mindset and ensure that it subscribes to God’s word (2 Cor 10:4-5).
Your first assignment in pursuing mental transformation is to break through the limiting belief systems that come from culture, past experiences, family background, and negative associations.
A man’s life will be a definite reflection of his mindset and ideologies.
Nothing will change in and around the believer’s life until he pioneers the change from his mind.
Pray: In the name of Jesus, I obtain grace to contend for a mental transformation.
Two Superior Mindsets That Propel The Believer’s Life To Greatness:
1) The Mindset of Honor.
2) Thee Mindset of Gratitude.
The mindset of Honour and the mindset of gratitude are two mindsets that can set you on the path of achieving success.
The results and patterns in a man’s life reflect his ideologies. Until you change your current mindset, nothing in and around your life will ever change.
Make the decision to invest in quality knowledge and feed your mind with the right things. Be committed to subscribing only to superior mindsets.
Lay your hands on your head and pray: Oh Lord, I come against everything that has declined my prayer life, word study life, and passion for the house of God, in the name of Jesus. I begin to walk in line with the patterns that make for good success.
Pray: Every demonic mindset scheduling seasons of defeat, poverty, loneliness, and shame in my life, the Lord rebukes! I declare that I have the mind of Christ. I rise above every limitation.
Love is a command association is not.
Pray: Father, Let my destiny open up! I call forth good success in my life in the Name of Jesus.
Pray: Father in the name of Jesus, ignite my love for you.
Pray Father, in the Name of Jesus, I dethrone every idol in my life. My love for You will not decline.
Pray Every foundation of poverty, ancestral curses – by the blood of Jesus, I am exempted from them.
Every faulty mindset from my foundation, waging war against my triumphant life in Christ, I raise a standard against it in the name of Jesus.
I decree and declare, let your glorious destiny be opened in the name of Jesus.
Let everything that represents shame and reproach depart from your destiny in the name of Jesus.
I decree and declare restoration of Dead prayer and word study life in the Name of Jesus.
Anyone crying for financial help is bailed out by the power of the Holy Ghost in the name of Jesus.
