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.

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

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!

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
