For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the LORD thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing. Deuteronomy 2:7

One thing that I’ve come to discover in life is that success is not a surprise. You would never hear a successful man say he didn’t know how he became successful.

There are certain principles that every successful person applied to get their success. This means that if you can apply the exact principles, you would also achieve success.

Our world is guided by principles. The first principle is getting something to do. Only unwise Christians sit at home all day, praying, expecting God to automatically put food on their table. This principle is the foundation of your success.

If you do not get engaged in something, you can never be successful. Our opening text records it as the works of your hands. The only way God would prosper you is by the works of your hands. Understand this; God doesn’t care how little what you do is; nothing is too little for God to work with. After all, He fed a multitude of over 5,000 with only 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes.

Make sure your hands are involved in something GOOD and profitable.

Do with all your might whatsoever your hands find to do. That is, you have got to be passionate, zealous, and dogged with whatever you find yourself doing.

Do not be too quick to quit. 

Learn the lessons needed from everywhere you find yourself. There is a training God wants you to get from everywhere He has placed you.

Never settle for your present status quo.

Keep increasing in your mind. Another very important principle for success is refusing procrastination.

You see, procrastination is a character that fights and extinguishes success. The power of procrastination is the ability the devil has to deprive you of your success. Whatsoever you need to do, GET TO IT IMMEDIATELY!

When you study the account of Abraham, you’ll see that Abraham never procrastinated. Little wonder, he was and still is a success. Abraham was always quick to respond to everything God wanted Him to do. Proverbs 6:10-11 says,

Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.

Know this; life doesn’t understand explanations; the only thing it understands is a result. Success would only come to those that desire, and work towards it.

I do not misappropriate my priority. I refuse procrastination; therefore, the devil can’t rob me of my success. I am a sure success!


Psalms 138:8, Proverbs 24:33-34
