“This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good Success.”
In life, people may find themselves in certain circumstances they weren’t responsible for. Yes, others can create situations or circumstances—pleasant or unpleasant—for you, but ultimately, you have a role to play in determining the final outcome of your life.
The circumstances of your birth may not have been so palatable. You may have been born into a poor home; and you had nothing to do with that.
Now, don’t maintain the status quo, because someone else was responsible; change things because you weren’t born to be poor!
If you were attending a particular school, and for some reason the school closed up, are you going to say, “Well, there’s no need for me to go to school anymore?” No, you’d go to another school, or read at home and enroll for your exams. So, always, there’s something you can do for yourself. God needs your response.
No Christian is ever disadvantaged in life. You can be a success in life. God tells us how to become successes, and it’s by meditating on the Word day and night. Practise this.
As much as He wants you prosperous, healthy, happy, strong and vibrant, you have a vital role to play in making His dream for you come to reality. Irrespective of the circumstances or the things you’ve been through in life, the onus is on you to be triumphant.
As a child of God, you’re not helpless. You have the Holy Spirit, and He’s your unparalleled advantage. You can do anything, be as successful as you want to be, and be a great blessing to your world. Yes, you can! God is waiting for you to take the action. Take a hold of His Word, and let His glory, grace, and excellence, be expressed through you.
