We all want to be successful, to prosper in the market place and at home. So what is the secret? If that’s what you are seeking, look no further, the answer is in the Bible which reveals God’s “Secrets of Success” to enable anyone believing in Him to prosper and be successful. By successful, it will mean to be successful and be filled with all the goodness of God, to be in health, to feel his love and have joy to the fullest.
The Bible teaches that if we obey God, do not rebel but doing God’s Will, God will give us an open heaven to pour His blessings on us. Surrendering to Him and placing our complete trust in God is the primary key to be successful.
There are 2 very important prayers which we need to learn to pray. Based on what Apostle Paul taught in the Epistles, the letters to the Church, we have been encouraged to pray 2 prayers daily in order for us to know God’s Will for each of our individual life. Memorizing these 2 prayers and meditating on them are therefore necessary if we truly want to grow spiritually strong to carry out His Will.
It is through these prayers that we will gain more and more the fullness of the knowledge of God through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, our Master Teacher. We will also get to know clearly what God want us to do. Here’s the first prayer in Ephesians 1:15-19:
15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saint
19 And what is “the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward” who believe, according to the working of his mighty power.
In short, in this first prayer we ask the Lord to grant us the “Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him” and to open our eyes, so that we may know
(1) our calling
(2) our inheritance
(3) the miraculous power that is in us.
Here’s the second prayer in Ephesians 3:14-19:
14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
In this prayer we seek to be shown God’s love for us which surpasses all understanding. We also ask Him to show us the things He did to save us and of His sacrificing His only Begotten Son, of His finished redemptive work. To be able to fully understanding all this, Paul has asked that we pray daily to strengthen our inner man. Unless our spirit is healthy and strong, we cannot understand God and His Will for our daily walk, both vertical and horizontal fellowship.
So Brethren start making this 2 prayers a part of your daily devotion and you will be amazed how quick your growth in Him can be and how wonderful it will be each time you gather together with your fellow believers to fellowship. And by doing all these, you are doing God’s Will and God in turn will see your successful in all you do.
