Guaranteed To Succeed
“And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you [with abundant increase of favors] and make your name famous and distinguished, and you will be a blessing [dispensing good to others]. And I will bless those who bless you [who confer prosperity or happiness upon you] and curse him who curses or uses insolent language toward you; in you will all the families and kindred of the earth be blessed [and by you they will bless themselves]. So Abram departed, as the Lord had directed him …” Genesis 12:2-4 (AMP)
The third character of a God-given vision is that it is a guaranteed path to success and significance. This means that when you follow God’s vision you are destined to succeed. It has been said that man’s plan has no guarantee of success and God’s plan has no possibility of failure.
Man’s plan may give you temporary success but if you want to have eternal significance then you must follow God’s plan for your life. In God’s plan for your life, greatness is inevitable.
There are many who want to be great, but you are not assured of greatness when you are only thinking of going your own way. It is choosing to go God’s way that guarantees your greatness.
In our opening scripture we see that as Abraham followed God’s plan for his life, he became great as God had said. So one of the reasons why many are broke and frustrated in life is because they are not following the plan God has for their lives.
When you are in God’s perfect plan for your life, you have no worthy competition. You will be great, that means you will have enduring significance and timeless influence.
Please read 1 Chronicles 29:25 and 2 Chronicles 1:1 and ask God to magnify you exceedingly in the sight of all people and to take you to levels you have never been before.
