“John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.” John 3:27
For you to have eternal success, you must recognize that without God you cannot succeed.
This is because according to our opening scripture, “A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.”
This approach keeps you humble. It gives you a very clear perspective of life.
The Message Bible puts our opening scripture this way, “It’s not possible for a person to succeed — I’m talking about eternal success — without heaven’s help.”
This shows that success of any kind requires divine permission.
God’s desire for you is for you to succeed. In 3 John 2 the Bible says, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
This shows that God has good intentions for us but it requires our collaboration because success is intentional.
Nobody succeeds by chance. If you succeed by chance you will eventually fail.
Success that is built on principles, purposes and patterns is actually a success that is sustainable.
But if you don’t know how you became successful because someone helped you get to where you are, you will discover that if anything should happen to those who made you, you are gone. That is not lasting success.
Lasting success is built on principles, purposes and patterns so that you can reproduce it again and again.
Dear Father, I ask that You grant me light to walk the way you want me to walk and to live the way You want me to live, to see the results you have ordained for me to see, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

And he said, O Lord, God of my master Abraham, I pray You, cause me to meet with good success today, and show kindness to my master Abraham.(AMP)
Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it [to] the right hand or [to] the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.(KJV)
My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.(ESV)
