If you are a Christian, you have been destined and programmed for success. It is God’s will that we make it and be successful in this life. You may have gone through failure, fear, disappointment, rejection, delay, discouragement or even frustration; I want to say to you today that you can make it because Jesus is on your side.
2 Peter 1:3 ‘as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue. This scripture shows that God has put in us all things that will enable us to make it in this life in our ministry, our marriages, our careers, our businesses, our education.
Even though we have been programmed for success, we to see His plans come to fruition in our lives. Deut 29:9 ‘Therefore keep the words of this covenant, and do them, that you may prosper in all that you do’ This means that if we are to prosper and be successful in what we do, we need to keep God’s Word by obeying what it says and as long as we keep His Word, we will make it.
Joshua 1:8 ‘This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe
to do according to all that is written in it.
For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
In the next issue we examine the life of Peter, one of Jesus’ disciples to see what he went through and how he was able to succeed despite the trials he faced and the mistakes he made.
Remember, with God on your side, you will make it.
