LASTING SUCCESS II.

Why many don't have lasting success?
Happy new week blog readers, welcome to this week's edition of Monday's Digest.
Last week we discussed the first reason why many don't have lasting success- Comfort Zone. If you missed it you can get here.
Today we'll be talking on the second reason why many don't have lasting success and that is:
UNFAITHFULNESS.
Unfaithfulness is the quality of being unfaithful and being unfaithful is not being true to duty, obligations and promises. (Word-web Dictionary)

Unfaithfulness is also defined as a quality by wordweb which implies that every of our attitude counts and we can weigh our success based on them.
Quality is an essential and distinguishing attribute of something or someone and that means unfaithfulness is one.

What are you known for? 
What distinguishes you from others??

A lot of us complain of not having lasting success but we have one or two qualities in our lives that cannot hold unto success and one of such is unfaithfulness.

Being unfaithful is being untrue to duty, obligations and promises.
How true are you to duty?
How true are you to jobs you are obligated to do?
How true are you to your promises?
Do you keep agreements?
Are you true to people or you enjoy playing smart on them??

All these negative acts and attitudes unfaithfulness births makes you reduce in your pursuit of excellence thereby causing a fall from success.

Success usually comes to those who are too busy looking for it -Henry David Thoreau
It does not come to the Unfaithful!!

Some people do not have lasting success because they won some multi-billion Naira/Dollar projects, they got their determined job position, they have been promoted to the position they have been dreaming of and all they can do now is Relax- become Unfaithful!!

The higher you go on the Ladder of success, the higher you should grow in your faithfulness.

Faithfulness is one of the ingredients that keep success, it is being steadfast in affection or allegiance.
It is the zeal you applied when you were hunting the job, the zeal you had when you started up the business that can keep you in success
.
Unfaithfulness is a quality in you that speaks louder than your Curriculum Vitae/ Résumé.

Your skills, certifications and qualifications (Academic) will get you a job truly but your qualities keep you in the job and in success.- Oluwatobiloba Oshunbiyi

The  number one test of your faithfulness to success and lasting in success is how early you get to work(Smiling).

See you next week.

KAIROS: THE MYSTERY OF TIME

At the very beginning of Jesus’ earthly ministry  Jesus tells of a great opportunity: God’s kingdom is within our reach. To enter the kingdom, however, we must go through a process of REPENTANCE and BELIEF.

Mark 1:14‭-‬15 KJV‬‬: Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Through this process we learn how:
-To lay down our lives
-Pick up the cross
-Follow Jesus into the kingdom

These three highlights aren’t steps but a circle that represents our Journey into the kingdom of God and time: the kairos moments in our lives which is the portal through which we enter into Kingdom living.

What is a Kairos Moment? 
A portal (access) through which we enter into dimensions of results. It is a moment and moments defines time just like seasons define destiny.
Eg: Jesus’ death on the cross was not a last-ditch effort on God’s  part …

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations. 

In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

BOLDNESS: the requirement for Servanthood.

While it is not scriptural to pray for faith,  you can ask God for boldness.
Very soon after the early church had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, we see them petition for it.
-It takes Boldness to dispense the anointing  NOT just faith.
Faith is used to receive not dispense(create) in the operations of the anointing.Though the gift of faith manifests boldness too.

HOW COME THAT IDIOT IS RICH AND I AM NOT?

Here is why..,
That idiot is had an encounter with the spirit realm, an encounter with the Spirit of God not mammon. He's firstly  sure who is master is as this is the secret to a lasting financial life and destiny.

.....for it is in the office of God by His Spirit to give you the power to make wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18 emphasis added) but you have to remember Him(God).

SERVANTHOOD

2 Peter 1:1 – Simon Peter,  a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ.
The Apostle Peter’s first letter was a message of encouragement, instruction and admonition to the Christians who were scattered throughout Asia minor.

Even though he was part of Jesus' inner circle and was a pillar in the early church , he opens his letter by calling himself a servant.



This shows you that it doesn’t matter how long you have been a Christian or how mightily the Lord used to,  you are always a servant.
