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.

GOD'S OMNIPRESENCE AND MANIFEST PRESENCE - THE DIFFERENCE

God’s omnipresence is His attribute of being everywhere at once. He is omnipresent even when we do not experience His presence; He is here, even if we do not recognize Him. God’s manifest presence is, of course, His presence made manifest—the fact that He is with us is made clear and convincing.

DISCERNING THE MOVE OF GOD

Acts 2:17 [17]And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams God wants to move again and He needs a lot of vessels. God is not trying to repeat the same thing. He does not fail so He does not repeat. He only uses a familiar operation; a familiar move to men to progress the birth of The revival. Christianity(The Sphere of Religion) cannot export and empty itself into other spheres of influence, Men have to be exported into these spheres and the only way men will be exported is when we discern what God is trying to do and position ourselves for these moves. Our generation has to understand the synchronization between the Cyclical and the Acyclical move of God. We need to understand how these dimensions sync into each other to birth the revival.

NOTHING IN MY HANDS

Ever heard anyone say this in your ears? .......  I have nothing in my hands, nothing in my Store,   nothing in my account, no start up capital..... I have nothing, nothing!  And of a truth you will discover too that there is nothing in their hands as you have been told because there is no po inter to anything in their hands that there is anything in their life. Life has taught me per time that people live what they feel of their selves.

ARE YOU TRUE TO YOUR CALLING? | Pastor E.A Adeboye

There are many people in ministry today who are going off track because they are operating in areas wherein they were not called.  Some out of personal ambition, are operating in callings that are not theirs while others are innocently operating in the wrong callings out of concern. Having a burden about something or seeing a need does not automatically translate to a calling! “And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.”                    2 Timothy 2:5 KJV According to the above Bible verse, anyone who does things outside the will of the Master will be disqualified. Everyone who God has called is scored by Him! If what you are doing is outside God’s calling for your life, no matter how good you are in that calling or ministry, it is regarded as irrelevant. Paul was greatly burdened by how the Jews were walking outside the will of God. He kept preaching to them, yet they were persecuting him. The greatest persecution he go
