I have realized over the years that there are many things that lacking them can destroy our spiritual, mental and physical well being. People live in lack of many things, whether money, health, acceptance, peace, love and a myriad of other lacks. But I have come to the conclusion that the biggest destroyer in life is lacking the knowledge to grow and overcome the obstacles life throws at us. Lacking the knowing of what to do can suspend any hope of manifesting this wonderful finished work that Jesus Christ has bought us.
Hosea 4:6 says it like this: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge... "
The biggest lack we face is “THE LACK OF KNOWING”!
Knowing WHO we are in Christ; how to walk it out; and what resources we have been given!
Lack in life is a curse… BUT God has generously provided for a life of abundance…
GOD HAS KINDLY PROVIDED HIS ABUNDANCE!
The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]. John 10:10 AMP
Now every human that is in Christ can be a success in life! King David did...
In everything he (David) did he had great success, because the Lord was with him. 1 Samuel 18:14
GOD HAS DESIGNED US TO BE SUCCESSFUL!
I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose, I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.] Philippians 4:19 AMP
GOD HAS BUILT INTO EVERYTHING IT’S OWN SUCCESS!
How about a fish? Fish are meant to swim. It’s the natural thing for a fish to do. When a fish is pulled out of it’s natural habitat of water, it begins to die. Only by a timely return to the water can it live. Water is the fish’s natural environment, and in it the fish breathes, swims, and lives. Out of it’s right environment it dies.
You and I are the same way. God created a perfect environment for us called earth. It is over abundant with everything we need to breathe, grow, and live successfully. Never let anyone tell you we are running out of earth. God knew what it would take to supply earth with every thing the billions of people would need to thrive, and not just survive. Go God!
But not only is the natural environment important, so is our spiritual environment. Only when a man is connected and stays connected to his source the Creator, can he really thrive in life. Many folks have started out on their own without a connection to God, and find themselves in survival mode, on spiritual life support, ready to give up. Your answer is not to run away from God, but run to Him. Only God knows the true you, and what is missing for success. God loves you and created you for greatness. Find Him and find life.
THE SECRET TO YOUR SUCCESS IS BUILT IN YOU!
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion… over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” Genesis 1:26
YOU WERE BORN TO SOLVE A PROBLEM!
KING DAVID RECOGNIZED IT!
For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep, and was laid among his fathers… Acts 13:36
- David solved the Goliath problem.
- Noah solved the flood problem.
- Daniel solved the problem of administration!
- What problem were you sent to solve?
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Joshua 1:8
The key to walking in your God given success is meditating the Word of God. Joshua tells us as much. As you find your way in His word, you will find your way in life. Blessings my friend, Dr Karl
