WELCOME to the Saturday edition of the Chilanga Premier College entrepreneurship mentorship program.
Between today and Tuesday, we will be talking about principles of financial prosperity.
Maybe, let us start by asking you this vital question; DO YOU WANT TO BE WEALTHY OR POOR?
Your answer will determine if this article will change your life or not.
We talk a lot about venturing into one business or the other because we want to make profit right? Yes every business man want to make profit but for one to succeed in anything in life, there are laid down principles one must follow.
We will be discussing the principles of financial prosperity with you from biblical perspective— lots of apologies to you if you are not a Christian.
This is a vital topic that can change your life as an entrepreneur if you will abide by the information I will be sharing with you.
The Principles of financial prosperity will be a special TOPIC as we will be getting most of our reference from the good book THE BIBLE— something we rarely do.
First, we all know that God cannot lie, read Numbers 23:19. Now God said He will bless His children beyond their imaginations. He said in Philippians 4:19 that “He will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus”.
Now ask yourself; why are some people rich and some others poor? God created all men equal with one head, two hands, two legs, etc yet some seem to be favored than the other. Why is Dr Lawrence Sikutwa of Madison Insurance stinking rich and yet the likes of Chilufya Tayali keep complaining of being broke day in, day out?
You have even seen situation where some physically challenged people make more money than the physically and mentally strong ones.
Now here this;
Do you know that to be a success or a failure is a choice?
Listen, God have blessed each individual with a gift. He did not create you by mistake.
Every man/woman has a purpose while he/she was created. God made “all things good”. He knows what a particular creation of his can handle. All you need to do is search out the reason why He created you.
Have you discovered why God created you? Ponder on this question.
Now if you are yet to discover the purpose of your creation, things might not be very easy for you. He said in Isaiah 48:17 that He is the one that teach you to profit, now do you think He will teach you to profit in what He has not called you?
Enter every activity without giving mental recognition to the possibility of defeat. Concentrate on your strength instead of your weakness, on your powers instead of your problems ~ Paul J. Meyer
You must know why you where created, it is very important if you must excel in whatever you are doing. Do you know that God hates lazy people? Proverbs 20:13a said “Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty”. Also Proverbs 19:15 said “Slothfulness cast into deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger”. There is a saying no food for a lazy man.
Are you one of those that are waiting to get a good paid job before you can start doing something?
You still have parents that are taking care of your needs even after training you through the highest level of education so you are not bothered and waiting for their connections to get a job or a contract.
Here us, you are lazy and God hates that. He said He will bless you by the works of your hands. God does not drop money or riches from heaven. He will only bless you through what you do per time.
You are either running with a vision, going on a mission or burning with a passion, If you do not belong to any of these, life is reduced to a burden. ~ Dr David Oyedepo
Now coming to the main topic of the day, do you know everything in life have principles? For a HARD WORKING man to prosper, there are some standards that God have set or commandments that He have given. God wants all men to prosper.
Do you know that money answers all things? Ecc 10:19
Do you know that money is a defense? Ecc 7:12
Do you know that money gives you a voice? Ecc 9:14-16
Do you know that money is not the root of all evil, the LOVE of money is? 1 Tim 6:10
For you to make it in life, you must note these kingdom perspectives;
It is possible.
It is your choice.
You must be obedient.
“Your passion is a pointer to the problem you are created to solve” ~ Mike Murdock
Let’s end here for now. We will continue this discussion tomorrow morning!
