THERE IS A COST TO PAY
For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’
Luke 14:28-31 ESV
Success in life doesn't come in a single night. It's true that miracles of God can take place within a second but there is a process when comes to true success. Each one of us has his own definition of success depending on what we were made to believe success is.
One thing that all successful people have in common is that they work hard to reach where they desire to be in life. People who are successful in their careers, relationships, ministries or anything in life; they have worked hard to reach where they are right now. They sacrificed a lot and gave up some pleasures that they may reach certain goals in life.
I don't know where you see yourself five years from now; but I believe you want to have better life than what you have right now. Maybe you believe God for more success in your life, but one thing you need to understand is that there is a price to pay. Success won't come cheap, there is your part to play no matter how spiritual you maybe; but still you need to work hard for it.
This morning, I want you to know that there is a cost to pay for everything you want to achieve in life. If you have the dreams of becoming the C.E.O of your company then you need to know that there is a lot of work to do. If you desire to manage your own company or business then you need to know that there are a lot of sacrifices that you will make along the way.
If you are in the ministry, then you need to set yourself apart that you may be used by God. You need to make sure you understand the Scriptures, live the life of prayers and follow the lead of the Spirit of God. If you are in a marital relationship or any kind of relationship, you need to know that there are sacrifices you need to make to make your relationship success. I pray that God may help you to succeed on whatever thing you put your mind into it.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, I desire to have good success in life. I know that there is a price to pay to reach where I desire to be in life. I'm asking that You may give me wisdom and strength to achieve my goals in life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
