Ways a Christian can engage to record earth shaking successes in life
By Henry Neondo
There countless number of theories out there that give detailed accounts of making it in life.
All that one needs to do to find ideas or various thoughts on how to be successful in life is to get down to your PC and click on the internet search and before you know it, more information than you may necessarily need would be staring back at you on your PC monitor.
However, I would like to share with you some brief biblical ways two men of God used to achieve success.
The first man I would like us to look at is King Solomon, son of David
Solomon’s secret system
Solomon portrayed a step by step system to achieve the success he recorded especially in building a house for God.
What are the systems?
i) Purpose-1Kins 5:5- And, behold, I purpose to build an house unto the name of the LORD my God, as the LORD spake unto David my father, saying, Thy son, whom I will set upon thy throne in thy room, he shall build an house unto my name. Until you purpose a thing, you have not started yet.
Dictionary definition for purpose-The object toward which one strives or for which something exists; an aim or a goal: “And ever those, who would enjoyment gain/Must find it in the purpose they pursue” (Sarah Josepha Hale). As you desire to see change in your status, sit down and think through your purpose, for that is where it begins from.
ii) Determination -2Chron. 2:1- And Solomon determined to build an house for the name of the LORD, and an house for his kingdom... you can determine to be successful thus assure yourself that no matter what it takes, you will be successful in that endevour and humiliate the enemy you may be facing right now in Jesus name
iii) Preparation-2Chron. 2:3- And Solomon sent to Huram the king of Tyre, saying, As thou didst deal with David my father, and didst send him cedars to build him an house to dwell therein, [even so deal with me]
iv) Operation-See 2Chron. 2:3
v) Continuation-1Kins 6:37-38- In the fourth year was the foundation of the house of the LORD laid, in the month Zif: And in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, which [is] the eighth month, was the house finished throughout all the parts thereof, and according to all the fashion of it. So was he seven years in building it
vi) Completion-2 Chron. 7:11- Thus Solomon finished the house of the LORD, and the king's house: and all that came into Solomon's heart to make in the house of the LORD, and in his own house, he prosperously effected.
vii) Perfection-2Chron. 8:16- Now all the work of Solomon was prepared unto the day of the foundation of the house of the LORD, and until it was finished. [So] the house of the LORD was perfected.
The seven steps of success taken by Solomon to succeed in building a house for God is a complete system that when fully engaged in, would grant you success.
Success in life therefore is a complex multi-component product made up of several systems.
A detailed understanding of these systems makes you an expert in any endevor
