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.

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.

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST?

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST? Fasting is the periodic abstention from food and in some cases even water; usually this is done during the daylight hours and many people fast for religious and health reasons. Fasting is an ancient practice that has assisted in attaining a state of spiritual consciousness that is more highly sensitive and elevated than under normal conditions.

Many people in the Bible fasted, including Moses, David, and Daniel in the Old Testament and Anna, Paul, and Jesus Christ in the New Testament. Many important figures in Christian history attested to fasting’s value, as do many Christians today.

The purpose of fasting is not to get God to respond as a genie in a bottle to grant our every wish. Fasting, whether it is regular, partial, absolute, or sexual, is a seeking after God’s heart, all other blessings and benefits being secondary to God Himself. This is what sets apart biblical fasting from other religious and cultural practices around the world.

The Bible describes …

DID JOHN THE BAPTIST REALLY EAT INSECTS(LOCUST)?

His name was divinely given. It was to be “John” (Luke 1:13), which derives from a Hebrew term signifying “Jehovah is gracious.” He was known familiarly as “the Baptist” (bearing no relation to the modern sect), which simply means “an immerser, one who administers the rite of immersion” (Matthew. 3:1; 11:11; ..). The Jewish historian Josephus even refers to John by this designation (Antiquities 18.5.2).


The importance of John in the divine scheme of things probably is summed up best in the testimony of Jesus himself. “Among them that are born of women there has not arisen a greater than John the Baptist” (Matthew 11:11). Luke does say of John: “And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel” (Luke 1:80). This desert (or deserted) area “stretches from Jerusalem and Bethlehem eastward some 20 miles down to the Jordan River and the Dead Sea.” It is “a barren region of rugged hills and valleys” (Earle, 30).

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.
