By Pastor Andrew Bawa
"Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. And those of the people who understand shall instruct many; yet for many days they shall fall by sword and flame, by captivity and plundering. Now when they fall, they shall be aided with a little help; but many shall join with them by intrigue." - Daniel 11:32-34 (NKJV)
Success encompasses wisdom, power and wealth. Wisdom is the sucessful combination of insight to influence others. Power involves gaining strategic advantage over others. Wealth is the accumulation and control of resources. These three make up success.
Knowledge is everything. The more you know, the more you can command. Exposure is the price you have to pay to do exploits. How can you be a master if you don't know enough?
The secret of success is knowing your God. If you are connected to God, you are connected to success. To know your God, you must know his word. You must study his word diligently, meditate on it and apply it to every thing you do. Seek to know and not to be known.
To Know Your God:
- Have an encounter with Him.
- Receive revelations through His word. (Acts 20:22)
- Commune with Him via prayers and worship.
