TOPIC – SUCCESS NEEDS FOUNDATION
Read Genesis 26:12-14
12. Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him.
13. And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:
14. For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.
MEMORISE: Then Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundred folds; and the Lord blessed him (Genesis 26:12)
Everybody loves success. Everybody desires success. Everybody prays for success. “Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers” (3 John 2). Everybody wants to succeed. It is the will of God for you to succeed in life. But success has principles that make it happen. God has designed it to be so. A lazy man may wish to jump into success without any work at all. Things do not work like that. God has laid down certain things to follow, if you want to succeed. God worked in creating the heaven and the earth. As sovereign God, He showed us good example to follow, if we want to succeed.
Isaac became prosperous and very rich, when he followed one pivotal foundation of success. ‘Then Isaac showed in that land…’ Sowing was the foundation that Isaac needed for his success. What are you doing now in order to succeed? What kind of foundations are you laying to succeed in the nearest future? What do you plant that can yield blessings for you? What are your godly investments for future harvest? Success calls for solid foundation.
Famine did not prevent Isaac from sowing the seed he had. He planted the seed and they yielded fruits in hundred folds. You can go and learn an art, or a trade. You can acquire more skills to fetch you more money – entrepreneurship. Laying the foundation for success is a necessary step to succeed. Success works on the wings of solid foundation. Begin to lay good foundation for yourself now, and God will grant you success; most especially, you have to sow your life totally in Jesus, and you shall become successful.
1. Father, open my eyes to those things I must do to facilitate my success.
2. God, help me to overcome all barriers militating against my success in life, in Jesus’ name.
3. Pray that God should prosper His works in the hands of the Authority of our great Mission.
