THE PRINCIPLES OF SUCCESS IV (June 10, 2018)

The Lord Jesus said in Mathew 11:28 – 29

You come; it is your responsibility to come

Learn of me; it is your responsibility to learn

Success for you as a believer is your destiny.

Success is part of your redemptive package.

 

Preparation is very important – Proverbs 24:27

You must give yourself to making it happen for you.

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.

 

2 Chronicles 27:6

So Jotham became mighty because he prepared his ways before the LORD his God.

 

Preparation is your responsibility

Every outstanding event is preceded by preparation.

Preparation is the mother of manifestations.

You are solely responsible for the successes that you gain in your life.

 

Remember it is “even as your soul prospers”.

You make your body available and see to the renewal of your mind.

It has to be spiritual, mental and physical: spirit, soul and body.

Sharpen your mind and spirit to power your Success.

It’s not just spiritual but mental and physical too

 

Mental Preparation.

Remember Preparation comes before elevation.

Don’t let your past define you, God has more in store for you.

God wants us His people to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.

This transformation of thinking God’s thoughts after Him is to be a daily pursuit.

 

Renewing The Mind.

Renewing the mind is an important part of living a successful Christian life.

God reveals His will for us through His Word.

And as we study and put God’s Word into practice, we will come to understand God’s will for our lives.

By renewing your mind you come to the point of operating through the same!

 

How Do You Renew Your Mind?

If any man will do his will, he shall know. – John 7: 16 – 17

If you are not ready or serious as to doing His will, then God will not be committed to showing you.

 

Then shall ye know if you follow on to know – Hosea 6:3

 

Renewing your mind requires the readiness of faith, and faith is acting on the Word of God.

The application of the word of God in our lives is first to change the way we think about our lives and everything.

God’s word provides the way for us to be changed from the inside out.

From the mind out.

 

His ways are not our ways, nor His thoughts our thoughts. – Isaiah 55:8

It is through the renewal of mind process that we begin to learn of His ways and thoughts so as to live and operate the affairs of our lives by them.

Renewing of the mind brings us into agreement Him and as such aligning our will with His will.

 

Job 22:22

It is as you fill your mind with His Word by reading, study, meditating, praying the word and speaking out the word, that you begin to think in a way that pleases Him,

And much more before you know it His ways become your ways.

And in so doing, you begin to master the circumstances of life through His power and wisdom.

 

How come?

Because when the challenges of life arise, you instinctively start viewing life through the eyes of God’s Word.

This new biblical perspective changes everything.

When you get God’s perspective about your business life, success will begin to answer to you.

It is renewing your mind that help repackage your thinking pattern, to thinking God’s way.

The scriptures provide a network of wisdom through which your thoughts are being screened. – Psalm 19:14

 

You cannot just go about thinking negatively and speaking negatively and expect to succeed in life.

Hence the renewal of your mind to think right and speak right.

As a Christian, the state of your mind matters a great deal.

This is because you are how you think. – Proverbs 23:7

So, God really cares how you think.

 

Renewing the mind is your responsibility

When it comes to renewing your mind-God has already done His part.

You must accept responsibility for renewing your mind.

After all, it is your mind!

You need to learn to think like God thinks through His word.

You need to get rid of your sinful attitudes, your negative, critical ways of thinking, your selfish thoughts.

Much of what we think about is directly connected to what we are feeding into our mind.

And what goes into your mind affects your whole life.

Renewing your mind is a process, not a one-time achievement.
In preparing for success, you need to align your thinking with great thoughts of success.

 

Some tips as to mental preparation

Then start seeing yourself as having achieved your goal, is a great way to prepare for success.

For all that you see, I will give to you – Gen 13:15

It is what you see that God performs – Jeremiah 1:11 – 12

So, start seeing yourself successful.

Start thinking thoughts of great success as influenced by the light of the word you have received.

Start speaking success

 

Like Dr Kenneth Hagin would say

“start acting like the word of God is true” even if you have not received it.

So start acting “As If” you’re already a success

In order to be successful, act as if you’re already successful.

 

Stop giving excuses for not doing what needs to be done.

If you keep allowing excuses, then you will never put enough effort into whatever it is that they’re trying to achieve.

In order to succeed you need to light a fire in you that keeps driving you forward.

 

Here are some more ways to prepare for success:
