You Are Destined to be Successful

You Are Destined to be Successful

0 By Carmen

It’s true. You are destined to be SUCCESSFUL – successful as a businessman or woman, a professional, a teacher or a nurse who cares for others or a mum who looks well after her children.

YOU, the person who reads this post, are wonderfully made. You are beautiful. You are victorious. You are the light of the world. God had planned a great life for you and it’s down to you to believe in Him and accept that this is true. You were carefully created in your mother’s womb because God wanted you. You didn’t come to this world by accident, no matter what your mum told you.

God wants you to prosper financially

You were created with a purpose and God, the Creator of the entire world and mankind, has plans to prosper you, to give you hope and a future. This is not wishful thinking, it’s what the Bible says in Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. It’s God’s promise.

But remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today – Deuteronomy 8:18

Desire to prosper to be a blessing to other people.

Shift mentality

For the last few years, until exactly 9 months ago, I was studying lots of mind power techniques to learn how to control my mind and focus on what I want to achieve in life. I tried with all my strength – I did all those exercises, practised visualisation, had a vision board, wrote cheques, said affirmations and tried to stop any negative thoughts and switch them with something positive. No matter what I’ve done I haven’t seen any results. I didn’t feel happy or empowered doing all these exercises, they didn’t bring me peace.

On 16th February 2017 I felt inside my heart that I should go to the church the following Sunday because something wonderful is going to happen and I am going to regret if I am not going. If you ever have this feeling, follow your heart. As I went to the church I found out that God loves me, and that He cares for me, that the Living God is with me and wants to guide me.

My life changed when I realised that God loves me that much that He sent His own son, Jesus, to die for my sins, that He wants me to love Him and see Him as a loving Father and that He wants to give me whatever I ask for in prayer – Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours (Mark 11:24).

That was my WOW moment. All my searches and teaching did nothing but when the Holy Spirit came my heart was full of joy and an inexplicable peace, love and faith.

LOVE changes everything. When you love God with all your heart, do what you love and love others (everyone, no matter who he is, if he’s rich or poor, a family member or a stranger) things start to change around you in miraculous ways.

The point I want to make is that when you live lead by the Holy Spirit everything changes. You learn to trust God because His plans are better than yours. He knows the steps you need to take to achieve the dream, the vision that He gave you. He knows the end result and what you need to do to get there.

No matter what you did in life God loves you and He wants to restore your destiny. Live by faith and believe in His promises to heal you and prosper you, believe in what He said He wants you to have or be. Repent of the things you did wrong in life, forgive those who made wrong things to you, receive Jesus into your heart, love God and love other people. As you read the Bible more things will be revealed to you.

These are not just words. God healed my hyperthyroid and healed other people I prayed for, He made it possible for my daughter to get a place at a school where others said it’s impossible to get in with a late application, I received job offers without applying for any and in the last few weeks I started to receive money out of nowhere. Just to give you an example – the city council realised after 5 months that we paid too much and they owe us money… These are just some of the things God did for me but there were much more.

Jesus said – without me you ca do nothing. But with Him you can do all things.

“As he thinks in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7).

What do you think about you? What do you think about in your daily life? Cast your cares on Jesus and live your life trusting God.
