WHAT SUCCESS IS NOT _ PART II

Success is not reaching a goal

Motivational speaker and Minister Bob Harrison says; “Setting goals is the most dangerous thing any person can do”

Why?

When you set goal in an area, you take attention away from all others.

Too often the woman who sets out to be a vice-president by age thirty-five is a divorcee by twenty-nine or a fellow who sets out to be a pop-star will make compromises that will plaque his spirit the rest of his life.

You may attain a goal but at the same time lose everything worth living for.

It is not that setting goals are evil, but they must be balance. You must realise that attaining one goal is only a small step toward achieving more important things.

When goals become gods, they become end in themselves.

Reaching a goal can destroy you by the temptation to stagnate and the illusion of accomplishment, if you don’t have a larger purpose beyond it.

Goals must be targets and not terminal destinations.


If success is not reaching a goal, then what is success?
Success is Life. It is a life that can be lived. It’s the life you are living or the life you have refused to live. The whole of your living/life defines success or the otherwise.

Life’s most important revelation is that the journey means more than the destination.

The world is not interested in the storms you encountered, but they want to know: did you bring the ship home safely?? Success is bringing the ship home safely.

Success is Life. If you believe you can succeed – or you believe you cannot – guess what? 
You’re right!
Success is who you are.


A goal is minute to the whole of your life. Thus, success is attaining everything worth living for. Your life is important than any goal.

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.

THE POST-CORONA WORLD

DATING - WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

Dating and Dates ( - going on dates) are two different things.
Dates are events where an individual goes out to meet people and know people. eg. A father and daughter going on a date.

Dating is form of romantic courtship typically between two individuals with the aim of assessing the other's suitability as a partner in an intimate relationship or as a spouse.
It is going on with someone intentionally checking to know if you have compatibility (emotionally, sexually, etc) with him/her with no boundaries, specificity or exclusivity!

The concept of dating is not Kingdom-oriented. There's no such things as "Christian Dating".
What then do we do instead of dating?
Do you know how to find your wife without dating?
Do you know how to found by your husband without dating?

TERRITORIAL RELEVANCE

The Garden of Eden in Genesis is not just a Story or History. It is our life to be lived.
- It is the system of God for Territorial Relevance cum Global Relevance!

The garden was God's first gift to the unfallen man(Adam) and also, every redeemed man.

 Though, after the fall of the man; thus the corruption of the earth, the system changed.

Joel 2:3
[3]A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

The system changed to men going through The Wilderness experience first, before The Garden experience then True RELEVANCE!
- John the Baptist being the system, Jesus being the standard. You?

THE MYSTERY OF HIS PRESENCE

Have you ever wondered why God will not honour the words of certain men and honour that of another?
Have you ever thought about something  like this or experienced this:
The Bible says .....You shall lay your hands upon the sick and they will recover(Mark 16:18b). You laid your hands and instead of a recovery, you found a discovery – that the man is not healed and the sickness/disease has back-fired. This can be painful......  until a young man comes and at the sound of his voice, the infirmity flees.
Has this ever bothered you?
Or that a man speaks into existence instantly what you have been begging God for with fasting and prayers.




I bring you a mystery today!
