PRICE FOR SUCCESS.


"But don't begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it? (Luke 14:28)

The reason why many fail in life, regardless of the opportunities and resources available to them is due to lack of wisdom. Wisdom demands that as you begin this new year, it is expected of you to sit down first and count the cost. Success is costly my dear. The price is enormous. The price for success are principles and discipline that must be adhered to if success in any area of life must be achieved.

The scripture text begins by admonishing us with clear and instructive sentence. " But don't begin until you count the cost". Don't start running this new year until you have sat down to count the cost. What will it cost you to achieve your new resolutions, the  vision and those plans? What is the price it will cost to see those dreams come through this year?

1. The price of time management must be paid.
2. The price of total obedience to God must be paid.
3. The price of discipline and integrity must be paid. Etc.

Success this year will cost you a lot. In the pathway to success, you may loose some friends, loved ones. Because of your inability to get distracted. Success requires focus.
You cannot afford to be playing around and accomplish anything. You need to give your dreams your best shot and your all if your goals must be obtainable. Make up your mind and get ready for a total turn around as you take your need to God. Have a blessed week.

Hebrews 12:1-3  Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangled, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

There are two factors that can easily hinder your goals in 2020:
1. Weight: e.g bitterness, unforgiveness, depression, discouragement, offences, etc.
2. Sin: e.g lies, immorality, deceits, etc

In order to achieve all your goals in this new year and not lose heart or become weary, depend solely on Christ alone.

Matthew 16:24-26  Then Jesus said to the disciples,"if any of you wants to be my follower, you must put aside your selfish ambition, shoulder your cross, and follow me.
If you try to keep your life for yourself, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for me, you will find true life. And how do you you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul in the process? Is anything worth more than your soul?

PRAYER:
1. I receive grace and strength for the journey ahead in 2020 in Jesus name.
2. The Lord shall uphold me in His mighty hands and perfect all that concerns me this year in Jesus name.

FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT

Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses(I Timothy 6:12).
In the journey of life, battles are not optional but mandatory. Even at birth, a child must be made to cry. At that point, he fights to overcome the force that wants to keep his lungs closed; so as to  live. Henceforth, various battles begin. 
When one becomes born again, the dynamics of the fight changes. He will still fight but this time around it is a good fight. The bible calls it the “Good Fight of Faith”. The fight is a good fight; the weaponry is also a unique one, FAITH. So a believer fights the good fight of faith, this fight is  termed a good fight because the end is determined from the beginning. Victory is guaranteed at the end. It is a fight to be won. Halleluyah!
It is like watching a replayed boxing match whose winner you already know. The same way, God is not bothered about what fight you may be involved …

LISTEN TO GODS' VOICE TODAY

"Today if you hear God’s voice speaking to you, do not harden your hearts against Him, as the people of Israel did when they rebelled against Him in the desert.” (Hebrew 3:15).
God speaks to his creation at all times. As we read the bible we see instances where God spoke to unbelievers, example; Saul,  Nebuchadnezzar etc. Jesus spoke to the wind and it obeyed him, He also spoke to the fig tree. How much more you his child. It is an error for you to say you can’t hear his voice. 
Jesus speaking in..…John 10:27 said; “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” 
As Gods' children, we have the capacity and the ability to hear His voice. But the challenge is; a lot of us do not pay attention and listen to what God is saying. Probably because we are waiting to have the Saul’s encounter of a voice speaking from heaven (Act 9:4).
God speaks to us in our spirit with a small still voice. Prophet Elijah had an encounter with this voice… II Kings 19:12 -13 “...and after the…

THE WISDOM OF GOD.

Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are His. And he changes the times and the seasons: He removes  Kings, and sets up Kings; He gives wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding. (Daniel 2:20-21)
This is profound words of Daniel praising God of all possibilities when he was with his friends narrating his experience to interpret and tell king Nebuchadnezzar of the dream he had. 
There is a wisdom from God that dethrones and enthrones. When you walk in the wisdom of God, you take your place in destiny; you get blessed by the same circumstances that destroy others;when  men are saying “There is a casting down”, You shall say “There is a lifting up”. The wisdom of God is superior to every other  wisdom. 
Five (5) important truths you need to know about the wisdom of God;  1. God is the source of wisdom  2. God is the fountain of wisdom  3. God is the giver of wisdom  4. God is the God of wisdom  5. God is the Author of …
