SUCCESS: YOUR BIRTHRIGHT PART 1
“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligentlyunto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will SET THEE ON HIGH ABOVE ALL nations of the earth:
The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
And the LORD shall MAKE THEE THE HEAD, and not the tail; and thou shalt be ABOVE ONLY, and thou shalt not be beneath…”
Deut 28:1; 12-13
By destiny you have been created as a creature of success. God’s plan foryour life is nothing short of outstanding success. To die a failure is to bea
disappointment to destiny.
God created you and loaded you with enough potential to accomplishoutstanding feats on the earth. Your past may be a catalogue of failures, but thetruth is that, many of the successful people that ever walked the surface of thisearth , were men who had a large part of their past plagued with all sortsof failures. Men like Abraham Lincoln; Thomas Edison; Major Sanders (KFC); just to mention a few. It was their thirst for success that kept them going on inspite of being confronted by the
After Thomas Edison’s 700th failed experiment while trying to invent theelectric bulb. He was asked about his failed attempts. He had this to say.
“I have not
failed, I have only just discovered 700 ways by which the bulb cannotwork”.
It was this conquerors mentality that gave Edison a breakthrough on his10,000th attempt. Today we have the electric bulb, because a man refused togive up, and decided to live his destiny in spite of all obstacles.
My friend, failure is not a destination; rather it is a state of mind. No man wasborn to fail. Every failure today, chose to be one of his own accord. Not evenyour past or background is powerful enough to make you a failure.
