Proverbs 10:22 It is the Lord’s blessing that makes you wealthy. Hard work can make you no richer.
As a teenager I tried to figure out my life and success without God, tried all sorts and to be honest they did work albeit temporarily but then I realized money alone wasn’t what I wanted, I needed more, I needed purpose and complete success.
I kept trying everything else except God and when I was tired of trying everything else, in my state of brokenness I surrendered. It was after I surrendered that I realized the beautiful life of all round success and joy that i seek is tied to my walk with God.
Don’t let anyone convince you the perfect life is gotten by chasing money and getting money by any means.
Money is an effect or by-product of success, money is not success. With success comes money not the other way round.
Money without a purpose leads to depression.
You need to first figure out your ‘what’ and ‘why’ (your destiny and purpose), and you can only get the true purpose of a product from the producer.
The 3 steps i’ve seen work and replicated in many lives are:
- Figure out what God means to you, the place of God in your life/destiny.
- Realise that all of your help comes from God and submit to Him to help you understand what your purpose is.
- Walk with God in destiny.
Most people see money as the measure for success but money is not the total package, comfort from the things money can afford you is just a part of the total package that God gives, God gives a whole lot more.
Abraham who is probably the most successful man in the Bible as far as i’m concerned had money and everything else that comes with good success, and all he had to do was walk in faith with God. All he had to do was put God before anything else.
Stop struggling, start trusting God today.
I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord,This was the first thing I had to understand and accept.
Who made heaven and earth.
But this is not to say that everything would happen the way and time you expect it all to happen but if you continue with God you can be certain it will happen. How and when is not your business, even Abraham didn’t know His legacy and wealth would live this long and be this big but it is and i don’t know about you but i’ll rather model my walk after a system that has been proven to work over and over again.
