Life is all about principles. God is not a respecter of persons, but He is a respecter of His principles. God is not partial, but He can become very “biased” when you work His principles. Isaiah told Hezekiah, prepare your home, it is about time to die.
When Prophet Isaiah says “Thus saith the Lord,” don’t question it. Hundreds of years before Yahushua Mashiah/ Christ was born, he told us about his birth and even gave the dates. He saw him on the cross and told us specifically that He was bruised for our iniquities, wounded for our transgression and the chastisement of our peace is upon Him! Now, that is huge! He is not like the so called prophets of today, that would cram the numbers of members in the church’s newsletter and start giving some lies. There is a difference between word of knowledge and word by knowledge.
Well, the message was given to Hezekiah and God has spoken But He faced the wall and presented His case like a lawyer. God changed His mind! God respects principles!
Here are a few winning principles that will guarantee you some huge steps in the direction of your destiny!
1. Be a reader
Read and read and read again! Prepare yourself for the work ahead of you. Surround yourself with knowledge, because
A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength. (Proverbs 24:5 KJV)
Decide to equip yourself for your assignment. Men of knowledge are respected. Knowledge opens the heavens over your life and gives you limitless possibilities.
See it in the scriptures:
By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.(Proverbs 3:20 KJV)
Yes, by knowledge, you can break the depths and heavens can be opened over your life.
You don’t need to become a wife before you start reading books on how to be a good wife. In fact the scriptures says, He that findeth a WIFE,…not a sister. So, God wants you to become a wife material before you can be found. You only do that by equipping yourself with relevant knowledge, and not by going to his house to cook and wash boxers!
What is your temperament? Why do you act the way you do? Study, read and make yourself approved.
As a man, how much of preparation have you done? Do you know what it takes to manage another human being?
You see, before you cry to God that He has not given you a spouse, the question is how much of preparation have you done? Do you know knowledge alone can qualify you and get you approved for certain level of blessings?
See it here:
STUDY to shew thyself APPROVED unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV)
There are some blessings that will come into your life, not because you pray but because you have a revelation of it through deliberate study!
2. Be a giver
Yes, very important. Be faithful with your tithe. Give offerings. Give to the men of God that are blessing you. Give to the poor. Support Kingdom work. Give to your parents. Satisfy every level of giving and see how the heavens will open over your life. Giving will break any hard ground and open any closed heaven. May God grant you more understanding.
3. Be a God lover
There is something about loving God passionately. Go after God and blessings would come chasing you! Pursuit of career without Christ will culminate in crisis. Learn to love God by putting Him first place in your life. Love Him, not just because of what He has done but because of who He is!
4. Be a forgiver
Forgive quickly if you will like to live long. Never habour bitterness, it is too much of a worthless load to carry. Yes, you are hurt, yes you are wounded, but forgive all the same. It is wisdom to do that as quickly as possible. People will hurt you and make you cry and regret. Anticipate that! Don’t allow hurts, bitterness and strife to stagnate your progress in life. Don’t immobilize yourself over something that happened ten years ago. Forgive and mount up with wings as eagles!
5. Be a leader
Finally, be a leader one way or the other. Impact somebody around you. Even if you are still a teenager, decide to touch a life. What you make happen for others, God will make happen for you. Stop living life in a ‘receiver’ mode where everything and everybody must keep “doing things” for you. Look for somebody you can help out. There is always somebody who doesn’t have as mush as you do, who is looking up to you. Find such people and make them smile. It is one of the greatest decisions you can ever make in your life! Look for somebody to just help out!
I pray for you this day, God will make your life shine. His glory will be seen upon you. He will open up the heavens over you and cause the desires of your heart to be granted in Yahushua’ name!
