THE PRINCIPLES OF SUCCESS III (June 03, 2018)

With all thy getting, get understanding” – Proverbs 4:7
It is your responsibility to get understanding
Come unto me; it is your responsibility to come
Learn of me; it is your responsibility to learn
Remember Success for you as a believer is your destiny.
Success is part of your redemptive package.
But you must give yourself to making it happen for you

Preparation
At every stage in life there is what you commit yourself to and prepare for.
Preparation is part of God’s nature and His plan.
Haven set the right goal then prepare to accomplish it.
Preparation is very important
Preparation is your responsibility

There is always the story behind the glory.
When you see a successful business person, you are only seeing the manifestation of the person.
What you don’t see are their failures, long hours and investment of effort, energy and resources invested in the success.
Mostly those are often forgotten or overshadowed by their success.
It is exactly the same as it comes to our Christian living.

“Study to shew” – 2 Tim. 2:15
You are solely responsible for the successes that you gain in your life.
Set yourself: That is preparing yourself, it is not just going and seating in one corner. – 2 Chronicles 20:17 ‭‭‬‬
Until you are set, God is not manifested.
You have to want Him, you have to look for Him, you have to seek Him and be expectant of Him
The expectation is the pregnancy of the Spirit.
Nothing is permitted to take place in the spirit without expectation.

“even as your soul prospers”.‭ ‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬3 John 2, ‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
Make your body available and see to the renewal of your mind. – Romans 12:1 – 2
The whole of man must be involved in this preparation.
It has to be spiritual, mental and physical: spirit, soul and body.
Sharpen your spirit and mind to power your Success.
You know your business and make your body fit so that you can do your job and be successful in it.

Spiritual Preparation.
Begin spiritually by making sure that your heart is right and pure with God.
Prepare ye the way of the people; prepare your way with God. – Isa 62:10
This is set yourself in being right with God
‭‭‭‭‬‬‬‬‬‬‬Spiritual preparation begins with seeking the Lord for an encounter.‬‬‬‬
Prepare for your success and believe that God will deliver!
Preparation comes before elevation.
Don’t let your past define you, God has more in store for you.

Remember the 10 virgins
5 were wise and 5 were foolish.
5 prepared ahead and 5 did not.
When the bridegroom came the difference showed.
“watch therefore”; that is be ready therefore.

Jeremiah 29:11 – 14
I have great plans of goodness and success for you “BUT”
You will seek Me; seek to know Me and know My ways
You will pray to Me; pray to Me to encounter My wisdom and grace.
When I am found of you, your fortune will change
Spiritual preparation is anchored in regular worship, study of the word and persistent prayer.
These are summarized in the statement “ye shall seek me”
It is anchored in daily developing our Christian virtues, growing in grace and faith.
It is growing in the wisdom of God and applying the same in your daily lives.

It is said “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

Preparation requires a vision for the future, personal commitment, self-discipline, and focus to accomplishing same.
It is in building up your spiritual strength for the task ahead.
If you don’t want to faint, then build spiritual strength. – Proverbs 24:10

Strength: How will it come about?
Spiritual strength is released through the open book. – Acts 20:32
If you return to the Almighty: YOU SHALL BE BUILT UP – Job 22:23
God is restoring total strength to you today.
You will not be disappointed anymore.

The word for strength.
The spirit of man; ensure the spirit man which is the engine of your life is alive. – Proverbs 18:14
When you are born again it is your spirit that is born again.
Your spirit man is the custodian of your strength, so feed it, nourish it, and build it up.
When your spirit man is actively alive your body comes under its influence for strength.
New birth makes you a living spirit: It is that spirit that sustains your infirmity
It sustains your health in all that you do. – Isaiah 40:31
It is time to have your spiritual strength renewed.

How? – 1 Tim 4:7 – 8
Exercise thyself unto godliness.
Godliness is profitable in all things: It is for all-around fulfilment.
Spiritual development is not a gift it is a responsibility.
Spirituality is the master key to a world of fulfilment.
A shipwrecked life is unavoidable when spirituality is not in place. – 1 Timothy 1: 19

Carnality makes you a casualty of life.
There is no future to a carnal mind.
Spirituality is to secure your destiny as a Christian.

How do we do this? – 2 Cor 3:18
Acquisition of the knowledge of God – Proverbs 24:5
A man of knowledge increases strength.
Your strength is a function of the knowledge of God you acquire.
From glory to glory we are changed or strengthened.

Consistent Prayers
Any believer that will advance spiritually must subject himself to the ministry of prayers and the study of the word like Apostle Peter said. – Acts 6:4
Your future is in your spirituality.
It is your Spiritual stamina that secures your destiny.

Through consistent fellowship in His Presence – Obadiah 17
In Zion the opportunity is there to grow in strength. – Ps 84:7

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BUILD SPIRITUAL CAPACITY?
Every muscle building process thrives on these two.
A good Diet and Continuous Exercise
God’s word is the bread of life
God’s word is meat indeed
God’s word is drink indeed
Bodybuilding is not a gift, it is a deliberate effort.
So also, is building spiritual strength

God’s Word is Milk: For growth
God’s Word is Meat, in fact, Strong meat
Milk helps to grow and meat helps to strengthen the growth.
God’s Word as Honey: Honey brings enlightenment.

Engaging advanced Christian principles.
Advance Spiritual principles: You can’t engage details and not be distinguished.
The honey of the word is what enhances dignity in the world.
It opens you up to exploits. Honey for dignity.

God’s Word is Wine:
The wine of the word is your guarantee for royalty.
Living under the intoxicating influence of the word of God.
Wait until you are intoxicated by it: As you tarry on it, it begins to intoxicate you.

Don’t die at the water level: You need to come up.
Water is for refreshing
Milk is for growth
Meat is for strength
Honey is for dignity
Wine is for royalty

Desperately seek higher knowledge.
If you don’t know how to connect with heaven you won’t make a mark on earth.
Fasting and prayers are God’s recommended exercise for spiritual development.
Fasting and prayers with the word are the spiritual two legs.
Word and prayer schedule must be part and parcel of your lifestyle.
Regulation helps to beautify life where there are no regulations there will be frustrations.
When you hate regulations, you become deregulated.
It is your season

Jesus is Lord!
