   Topical Verses:
        Real success
 
You must define both your purposes and a process for fulfilling those purposes, constancy to purpose is the secret to success.

The secret to successful living is prayer, meditation and application of God's word. God's word was not given to increase our knowledge but to change our lives.

Our lives are shaped by the commitments we choose to make, they can destroy us or develop us. Either way, they will define us. We become whatever we are committed to.

If you want success because you want to be somebody, then success has become a god, a false god who will fail you sooner or later. If you belong to God, you are already somebody.

  • God has purposed our lives that in itís fulfillment we will simply be a great people.
  • Living for Godís glory is the greatest achievement we can accomplish in our lives.
  • Prayer lets u speak to God, meditation lets God speak to u. Both are essential to becoming a friend of God.
  • The key to friendship with God is not changing what you do, but changing your attitude toward what u do.
  • It's very satisfying to be strong in your own ability, in your own ministry, and to be the person with all the answers but that really doesn't require much spiritual strength, it does require spiritual strength to bear the weaknesses of others.
  • When you are hurt by someone u have tomake a CHOICE, to make retaliation or forgiveness. u can't do both.
  • Knowing what to do (knowledge), why to do it (perspective) and how to do it (skill) is all worthless if you don't have the conviction to motivate you to do it.
  • Relationships, not acquisitions of things or achievements are what matters most in life. Busyness is a great enemy of relationships.
  • Whenever u feel unimportant, unloved or insecure remember u belong to God, being included in Godís family is the highest honour and the greatest priviledge you will ever receive.
  • Remember what God has already done for u when u feel abandoned by God, continuing to trust Him is to worship Him in the deepest way possible.
  • Don't be troubled by trouble. Circumstances cannot change the character of God. God's grace is still in force. He is still FOR YOU even when you don't feel it.
  • God's ultimate goal for your life is character development, CHRISTLIKENESS is all about transforming your character.
  • Christian life is not just creed and convictions, it includes conduct and character. The core of the christian lifestyle is thinking of others.
  • A proper view of the greatness of God cannot escape the reality that we are created and that all we have is by Him, from Him and for Him. There is no such thing as a self-made person.
To achieve real success, we have to be sensitive to many things. What are these things?
