“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, my counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure” – Isaiah 46:9-11
God is the only constant force that is unstoppable in manifestation. God’s power, authority and providence are from everlasting to everlasting. Therefore, when we lean on God, He takes us to our destination without opposition. The only opponent you have against your success is you – i.e., your inability to keep the faith and move forward despite all odds.
God had greatly endowed you with creative abilities to make you succeed over time. In addition to that, putting your decision before God becomes a significant step to success, as you will be making God a substantial partner in your business. Deuteronomy 8:18 tells us that God gives us the ability to create wealth. Further to that, Proverbs 10:22 says that “the blessings of the Lord bring wealth without painful toil for it.”
I have incurred many failures in my life as well. Therefore, I wish to confirm that there is no end to failure. Business is all about risk-taking. Do not be afraid of failure. Failure is not the end of your story but a redirection to something greater. Some failures can be the end of a chapter in our lives, but do not let that define your prospects or truncate your aspirations in life. As a believer, note that God can use your failure for good and open new service doors for you. For instance:
- God uses our failure to transform us – 1 Peer 5:10.
- God can use your failure to open new doors of service. Try your hands on something else if your present business is going through challenges.
- God can use your failures to transform the lives of others by using your failed experiences to teach others lessons or prevent them from making the same mistakes that you have made.
- God uses our failure to reveal our sin and to change our futures. When your dreams look shattered, turn to God! He will tell what led to your brokenness and show the way forward (Psalm 34:18)
If we are experiencing a delayed success, it is not because God is no longer capable of shouldering our responsibilities. As believers, we must continue to thrive in the faith. It does not matter how long we have failed; God’s compassion never fails, and His faithfulness is great every single morning. The bible says, “Because of God’s great love, we are not consumed”. God’s love remains from everlasting to everlasting.
PRAYERFather, in the name of Jesus Christ, I commit to you all my plans, establish me, and prosper my ways. I declare that I am unstoppable as my success is assured. AMEN.FURTHER READING: Habakkuk 2:3; Jeremiah 29:11; Isaiah 55:11; Psalm 138:8
