Success is your birthright! If you are born again, it is your redemptive right, your destiny in God. Jesus said, “Ye are the salt of the earth.” You, as a child of God, are to give taste to the earth; you are to preserve it. He also said, “Ye are the light of the world.” By this He means you are a pacesetter. The people of the world should learn how to get things done by looking at you and how you get things done. Again, Jesus said, you are a city set upon the hill, that cannot be hid. You are not in the valley, but at the top of the mountain.
If you are saved, you have been raised up. The Bible says He has raised us up together with Him. Jesus didn’t bring you down at salvation, but rather raised you up together with Him (Eph. 2:6). Not only that, He has made you to sit with Him far above!
Redemption has placed you far above; that is you are outstanding! You remember the four successful people in Babylon – Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego? They were ten times better than their equals. That’s far above!
Success is your kingdom right, your redemptive right; it’s your covenant right. Don’t sell off, like Esau did for a mere morsel of meal. Success is your heritage in Christ; it is your covenant birthright in redemption. Failure is an abuse on redemption, because Jesus came down to take you up!
However, success is not a gift, but a choice. While it is the birthright of all saints, the individual’s choice determines his portion. All that He foreknew, He predestinated, called, justified and glorified (Rom. 8:29-30). So, your choice to succeed is what generates in you the force to succeed. Your choice is the compass that points to your destination.
God has destined you for all-round success: success in your walk with Him, in your business, career, finances, health, home, academics, etc. You are a born star and are required to stand out wherever you are. Already, God has assured us that whatever we lay our hands upon to do shall prosper.
But it takes secrets to succeed! It takes a discovery of God’s secrets to attain the success He has in store for you. So, in subsequent write ups, we shall be exploring kingdom secrets that make for outstanding success on the earth. A strict and consistent pursuit of these secrets will grant you an eternal access into the reality of the covenant of success. You shall succeed!
