On Monday, we talked about having a winning attitude, and believing you can be successful. Today, I want to give you four principles that, when properly applied, will guarantee your success. The first is passion. Become passionate about whatever it is you are believing God to do for you. Picture yourself already accomplishing it. Without a vision, you have nothing to look forward to. Like the Israelites, you’ll find yourself wandering a mountain, not knowing where you’re headed and never reaching your desired goal. Next, embrace your desire and exercise your faith to attain it. Remind yourself that the Word says you can do all things through Christ who gives you strength (Philippians 4:13). Say to yourself, “I will succeed no matter what others think or say. If God be for me, no one can be against me and I will succeed.” Third, be willing to confront your challenges. You will never be able to conquer what you are not willing to confront. The good news is that you’re not alone, because Jesus has promised to always be with you. He’s there to help you fight and win against the enemy. So, instead of running and hiding, stand firm against the devil’s attack and use the Word of God to defeat him. Submit yourself to God, resist the devil, and he has no choice but to flee. Finally, prepare for your success. If you have a passion for success, if you have embraced it with all your heart and faith, and if you have boldly faced every challenge the enemy has devised to keep you from succeeding, then get ready because success is on the way. You’ll be like David, who the Bible says, “had success in all his undertakings, for the Lord was with him” (1 Samuel 18:14, English Standard Version). If the Lord was with David, then surely He will be with you. And when God is with you, you will not fail.
