Topic: Managing Success -1
[Wednesday, November 1,
Basic Scriptures: Isaiah 14:5-19
Madam Henrietta Green of the United State of America live a life of surprises. She lived and died as a pauper (wretched person), but left behind an estate of over 95 million US Dollars, when she died in 1916. She ate cold oatmeal because she would not spend the money to cook it. She was successful and rich, but could not manage success. There are celebrities in Africa and the world today who are hooked to drugs and alcohol to be able to survive.
Years ago, in the USA also, ENRON, the so-called, “electrical giant,” collapsed suddenly. Attempt at evading huge taxes led to their downfall. They could not manage success! Breakthrough is sweet, but can be bitter also, if not properly managed! Success nearly destroyed King Nebuchadnezzar’s destiny due to pride! Success destroyed Judas due to the love of money. Many praise and worship leaders in many churches can’t flow again because of pride! Success also, has brought great ministers of God to the valley of life because they could not manage the way men adore them as men/women of God. This is why a wise minister will DE-EMPHASIS HIMSELF/HERSELF before he/she ministers!
It is difficult and lonely to stay at the top, but by the grace of God, you will get there and shine! Many believers have stopped serving God or working in their local churches or stopped fasting/prayers because a breakthrough came. Did Abraham not control ISAAC – his breakthrough /testimony? In Gen 22: 7-8, when Isaac asked him “………….Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” , he controlled him and told him, “God will provide Himself a lamb……”

Yet Abraham knew that, THAT LAMB COULD BE ISAAC! Wow! Ask God for the grace to control your ‘Isaac’ (your success).

Resist excessive sleep/food! Resist lowering the standard of the Word of God and your success will surprise the sky.
