August 12th A Way Of Escape
Bible Reading: Eph. 1:3; Num. 13:30; 22:6; Zech. 4:6-7
1 Tim. 1:18
‘this charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare’
There is always a way to move from failure to success and it’s never too late to switch sides. While success is God’s promise you must fight your way into it. God gave the Israelites Canaan but they had to wage war. The devil always diabolically sets you up to fail so overcome the obstacles and press into God’s success provision.
Josh. 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’
Success is not automatic. It is true the word is a universal spiritual law, enforceable in all places, times, cultures, circumstances and social circles. However, there are three principles and practices for activating success: Proclaim, Ponder and Practice. You must speak the word, meditate in the word and act upon the word to be a success story.
Jn. 6:63 ‘it is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life’
i. Pray that the Body of Christ will fully possess its covenant possessions. Gen. 22:17
ii. Ask God to baptize the Body of Christ anew with the Holy Spirit, His fruit and His gifts. Acts 4:29-31
Thought for the day:
The word of God is your ticket to success.
