CHANNELS OF FULFILLMENT DEVOTIONAL FOR FEBUARY 4, 2022 (SUCCESS BY THE RIGHT)
TOPIC: Success by right.
TEXT: (2 Peter 1 vs. 1-10), (Colossians 2 vs. 2-3)
It is very important if you realize that success is the rightful portion of a Child of God. “Many Christians are far from success but this is not the will of God for any of us”. The reason why our success is unique and different is because it is not by power or by might but by my Spirit says the Lord, (Zachariah 4 vs. 6). Two qualified candidates were short-listed for the final interview to fill the vacancy of general manager in a multinational company. Both were asked if they could drive and they answered yes, even though only one of them can drive.
The head of HR spear heading the interview then handed his car keys to them to prove their driving skills within the premises. The over confident applicant collected the car keys, opened the car, switched-on the ignition, lighted it up, speed off, swerved and made some stunts on wheels before parking the car on the same sport to the seeming rousing applause and knowing smile of the interviewer. The other applicant who could not drive collected the key, open the car, opened the bonnet, and checked the engine oil level, the break fluid level, the gear oil level, and the water in the radiator level.
As he close the bonnet, the chief interviewer walked towards him and said; “don’t bother driving you have just been hired!” The race is not for the swiftest but to the wise (Jesus). The secret of possessing the success-right in Christ as a child of God, is never to be confident on your skills and abilities, learn the race and never back off from giving your best even if you don’t possess what it takes. That someone is doing it fast doesn’t mean he is doing it well!
I think you need to digest the scripture into your spirit which says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and Godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.” Remember according to his divine power therefore your right to embrace success is anchored on the divine power of God. That is when your capital and the people you know does not matter. You and I are called to glory and virtue therefore your life shall not display shame in Jesus name, Amen
- Ask God for the grace to succeed beyond your success preparation.
- Ask God for the capacity to display his nature at any time of opportunities.
- Father, Lord I pray and declare the influence of God all around me.
