It is only in the presence of God that there is fullness of joy. The world is missing out whenever they look for joy in externals. When they look for joy in material things and in places, they miss out. This is because joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit; you cannot buy it with money.
The richest are not necessarily the most joyful. The reason being – the equation for joy is totally different from the equation for wealth. It is different from the equation for happiness. You can be happy but not joyful. They are two different things. That is why we need to emphasize our relationship with God through his Son.
While having my usual prayer walk this morning God taught me the greatest success factor is the God factor. It is important for you to know this because what you don’t know will always be ahead of you. The world has come to the realization that the greatest thing that drives progress in life today all over the world is knowledge.
This is clearly stated in the word of God. Prov. 4:7, “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” Wisdom is the correct application of knowledge for one’s personal benefit and for the benefit of others.
It is important for you to understand that we are in the end times. There is no wisdom that is superior to the wisdom of God. The greatest knowledge is not scientific knowledge, nor biological, nor technological knowledge. The greatest knowledge is the knowledge of God. When Apostle Paul realized it he said, “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings being made conformable unto his death” (Phil. 3:10).
Just as the word of God says that things will be, that is exactly how they are. There is only one personality that has the comprehensive view, comprehensive perspective. Any perspective that is not in alignment with the perspective of the word of God is inaccurate. We ought therefore to align our lives comprehensively with the purposive will of God as enunciated in his word. It is not in the accumulation of knowledge that you find power, power lies in the application of it.
Josh. 1:8, “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.”
- Lord, please help me. Help me to make my way prosperous. Is there any way that I have become an enemy of my own progress in life? Lord, I repent this day in the name of Jesus.
- I align my will with your will. Lord, show me where to make amends and grant me grace to live for you all the days of my life in the mighty name of Jesus.
- Wherever I am missing out, please help me to make it up. Supernaturally empower me so that I will no longer be an enemy of my own success.
- Help me to make my way prosperous so that I can have good success. Thank you mighty God. Thank you for your grace. Thank you, Lord, for the generous provisions you have made for my wellbeing here and hereafter. I declare that you have made all things well. Take all the glory, in Jesus name.
