Ecclesiastes 10:10(NKJV)– If the ax is dull, and one does not sharpen the edge, then he must use more strength; but wisdom brings success.
Joshua 1:8 (NKJV) – 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 can be defined as the accomplishment of a desired end. Supernatural Success however, is the accomplishment of a desired end through supernatural enablement. I want to warn you that the success principles you will learn today will only profit you if and when you make it your lifestyle and not as a formula to be applied only when things are not working. The word of God works when you put it to work in the right way. I prophesy to you that today you will enjoy supernatural success in Jesus’ mighty name!
From the scriptures, we can see that God has created a way for us to succeed and His way of doing things is known as ‘His wisdom’. So to succeed God’s way, supernaturally, you have to do things His way and that is not negotiable. Remember, there is a way that seems right to a man but the end is the ways of destruction.
The first step to supernatural success is to put God’s word in your mouth. Whatever your goal or dream locate in God’s word a promise you can stand on and proclaim to create what you want. For example, if you desire wisdom you can take the promise in Luke 21:15 and personalise it by saying, “I have a mouth and a wisdom which none of my adversaries can resist nor gainsay in Jesus’ name.” You are limited when you proclaim your own words but if you proclaim God’s word your supernatural success is guaranteed. Remember the word of God carries unlimited creative power so create whatever you want with it.
The second step is to meditate on God’s word. Consciously take out time to think on scriptures regarding success. See yourself through the eyes of your mind succeeding in the thing you desire. Create your own picture of success, go over it in your mind over and over again until it becomes very real and unalterable to you. Don’t let anyone erase it from your mind. Remember what you look at longest becomes strongest in your heart. The more you internalise God’s word the more it manifests externally. So, envision your success and keep the picture intact.
Remember that as a man thinks in his heart so is he. You become what you think.
The third step is to take action. Start to walk in the direction of your dream. For example, if you want to get a degree in a certain field start by making enquiries, look for people who have done it before, ask them questions and learn from them. You can also be on the look -out for people who are in the process of achieving your desired goals. Get relevant information, commit yourself, don’t be discouraged, keep at it, be disciplined and you will begin to see God supernaturally connect and promote you until all you have been calling and envisioning materialises in the natural. Remember Proverbs 12:24, the hand of the diligent shall bear rule.
2 Chronicles 26:5, Philippians 4:8
Personal declaration for the day
I am not an ordinary person, I am supernatural. I engage supernatural grace in all that I do. I will not lose focus of my dreams and goals; I will not be discouraged, dissuaded or weary. I will keep at my dream and never quit.
I am open to correction and improvement. I am ready for new opportunities. Because Jesus Christ is within me I have God’s DNA therefore I cannot fail. I am a winner all the time; I am a success not a failure, a victor not a victim in Jesus’ mighty name!
Questions for you to reflect on
What do you see when see yourself in the mirror, success or failure?
Is that what God’s word say about you?
