How to Succeed when others Fail

How to Succeed when others Fail –

Very few people are aware that the real cause of their failure is that they are not operating according to the principles of Wisdom which we receive by Grace . Wisdom reveals to us the Kingdom Pattern for Prosperity. However,  the secular model for Success has influenced the focus of Teaching on Prosperity within the Church with the popular ‘My Prosperity’ dogma. The main problem with the modern ‘What’s in it for me ?’ focus is that it creates the wrong foundation, which is the cause of  the ‘My Prosperity’ delusion,  and as a result contravenes every principle of the Kingdom Commonwealth.

If you want to Succeed when others are failing, you must be prepared not to follow the herd. The Book of James is the most misunderstood and misquoted book in the Bible, and cannot be appreciated properly if you are caught up in the Babylonian System. It is important to understand that it was written by an Apostle of  Jesus Christ, not by a Monk or by an ‘End Times Expert’. Also, we need to be very clear that neither is  James writing about the ‘Poverty is a Virtue’ idea.

In James Ch 1 V5 it states, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him”.

Firstly , we can see from this text that God is a liberal giver, and does not hold back His blessings from those who ask in Faith. The principle of Wisdom is what is lacking in the ‘My Prosperity’ idea. Wisdom says that God is a provider, which is contrary to the “What’s in it for me ?” question which is based on the Fear of missing out.

Does it say in James ? “If any of you lack Wisdom, ask “What’s in it for me ?”. It does say , ‘let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally.” Wisdom connects you to the Grace of God so that you know that you will not miss out by being a giver, because God will provide for all your needs. If you are asking ” what is in the giving deal for me ? “, you are disconnected from the Wisdom of God and you will ultimately fail. If you are responding to a TV show that says to “Give $100 in the next 5 minutes if you want a Blessing”, you may not be walking in the Wisdom to receive your blessing.

Why are you not receiving your Blessing ?

You may be holding up your Blessing by asking “What am I going to get out of this giving deal ?” Wisdom on the other hand would ask, “How can I be a Blessing to somebody in need ?” Wisdom will cause you to Succeed whilst others fail.

Is it all just ‘Pie in the Sky’ ?
