How To Enjoy The Best of God For a More Successful Life
by Ngozi Nwoke
10/05/2011 / Christian Living
Are you at the verge of deciding for Jesus but you are wondering what life in Christ holds for you? Or are you a Christian believer but you think that an unbeliever enjoys a more successful life than you do? God has not called you to seek Him in vain. This article is to tell you how to enjoy the best of God.
"I have not spoken in secret, in a corner of the land of darkness; I did not call the descendants of Jacob [to a fruitless service], saying, Seek Me for nothing [but I promised them a just reward]. I, the Lord, speak righteousness (the truth--trustworthy, straightforward correspondence between deeds and words); I declare things that are right." Isaiah 45:19 (AMP)
God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him, (Hebrews 11:6). He is not a user of men. As a covenant keeping God (Psalm 89:34), He fulfils His own part of the agreement when we fulfil our own part. God the creator of the universe, the only wise God takes pleasure in the prosperity of His children, (Psalm 35:27).
Although, God wants His people to enjoy the best of God, many of us are far from doing so. As children of God we are supposed to be ahead all the time, (Deuteronomy 28:13). We are destined to enjoy a more successful life.
There are two major things we need to observe to continually enjoy God's best. These are:
1. Serve God ONLY
"For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God" Exodus 34:14 (KJV). Also, Matthew 6:24 says, "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon."
Anything that your heart pants for more than God at any time is a god to you. Furthermore, anything that is number one on your priority list other than God is a god in your life.
God will not share His glory with any other thing, (Isaiah 42:8). He won't continue blessing you if you attribute His blessings to something else: your expertise, a friend, a relative, etc.
Neither will you enjoy the best of God if He has to share you with any other thing. It is either God alone or not God at all. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also, (Matthew 6:21)
2. Obey God ALL THE TIME
"If you will listen diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, being watchful to do all His commandments which I command you this day, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you if you heed the voice of the Lord your God." Deuteronomy 28:1-2 (AMP)
Job 36:11 also says," If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures." (KJV)
Obedience to God and His word is an essential key to enjoying a more successful life. It will always lead you to your high places, bring you before kings and make you a figure to be reckoned with. Obedience to God commands His favour and blessings, that is, the best of God.
Partial obedience will offer limited blessings. Obeying God all the time may seem foolish but it really is the wisest thing to do. It may not be convenient but it is always fruitful. Obeying God may demand some sacrifices but it will also supply God's grace and helping hand.
Christian believers are programmed for a more successful life. The choice to enjoy the best of God therefore depends on you and your walk with God. Life in Christ is life in abundance, peace, joy and pleasure.
