Prepare For Success
“There for I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, not about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow not reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?” Matthew 6:25-27 (NKJ)
Success comes as a result of preparing oneself for inspiration, and then being willing to pay attention. I have learned that before I make any kind of big decision I must first have a clear vision and put it down on paper of the outcome I am seeking. If I want a change in my business or life I must first get a clear vision of what I want this business/life to look like.
If you are one that worries about making changes or even taking a risk the Bible has several scriptures on this. I always need to read scriptures and be reminded that God has asked us not to worry but to trust Him completely.
Proverbs 12:25 “Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.”
After I get my vision clear and I have put it down on paper I then go to the Lord and ask for His peace about it. That way I have no anxiety or questions on my decision. I then wait on His answer; it is not always the answer I want. It is the answer I am going with regardless.
Psalm 46:10a “Be still, and know that I am God.
So you say well that’s all in good but I am up against an insurmountable challenge, and you have let yourself be filled with fear and worry. Well, guess what? You cannot worry enough about a problem to fix it. If you are filled with worry you cannot be inspired. If you will let this worry go then there will be room for light, ideas, solutions and all kinds of energy.
1 Thessalonians 3:16 “’Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all.
What you focus on expands, so choose wisely on what and how you are thinking about things. If you want the fear and worry to grow then focus on it. If you want to achieve your goal or dream then put your energy into that.
Discover God’s voice, it will help you get direction and the timing right. By learning to recognize His voice you will get the success you are looking for.
