I heard a story about a graduate student who attended a seminar organised by the school. The speaker was a multi-millionaire in dollars and he was to teach them how to become a multi-millionaire. When the speaker started outlining the steps to be a millionaire, this young man raised his hand. He stood and said ” sir our respectable lecturer said…” The speaker intercepted and asked the young man “Is your respectable lecturer a multi-millionaire in dollars“. The young man answered “No sir“. The speaker said “very well then, would you now sit down for me to teach you how to be a multi-millionaire in dollars“. The young man said “thank you sir”
So often we tend to know too much than God. We allow the things we hear and see in the world to make us believe that that is how things are meant to be.
God wants us to be very prosperous, and He has outlined all we need to do in His Word to be successful yet, like the young man, we have allowed satan to feed our thoughts with wrong information. It is time we sit up and say God we don’t know too much. Teach us what to do in order to be successful in all we do.
Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. (Joshua 1:8 NIV)
God bless you.
