To seize an opportunity you must believe it can be seized
As your faith grows so will your success
If you want to live a life of success, then live with purpose and live with faith. Your strive for success should not come with frustration but rested in the wisdom and power of God (1 Corinthians 2:5).
At times, we keep focused or get inundated with things, ideas, problems, or opportunities to be successful. This has caused us to keep falling short of our goals, get frustrated, or confused because the answer has not come, or we have not seen results—but faith is all it takes.
Everything we desire and who we were created to be, the pieces are already in place. We just have to trust the process because our journeys in life are all part of our life plan created to help us be successful. It is part of the story that will unfold into your purpose and destiny.
Your current situation may not be ideal or what you want but it is necessary for you to get to your next season that may be the turning point for your success.
When you overcome a tough situation, you gain endurance to go through another and as you go through each season in life, you become stronger. This is why faith is needed because faith allows us to push through and become all that God desires for us to become.
Let go and let God.
What you desire will happen and to ensure it happens you are going to need patience. Having patience will save you from useless efforts and doing things that are unnecessary and a waste of your time.
Not relying on self-effort does not mean you do nothing and sit around waiting on God to do everything. It means you are trusting the wisdom of God while understanding His wisdom is greater than ours, and what He suggests will always be the best solution (Proverbs 2:6). In other words, you are trusting God to work for you and through you.
Faith cultivates patience and having patience is critical when it comes to God's timing.
Solomon said in Proverbs 16:3 commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed. Turn to the Lord for help in everything you do, and you will be successful. If you want success turn to the one who can guarantee it.
Your role is to live with expectation in God because He will not fail you. Live with a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in the future. All your dreams, hopes and desires will happen because your success is linked to your faith. Faith goes beyond hope—it is knowing.
"For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law (Bible) until everything is accomplished."
God wants you ready to walk into what He has ready for you. The skills needed, the education required, the character and integrity to be productive, God is molding you to have what is necessary to be effective, and having faith will get you through your season of dormancy into your season of success.
If you want to create wealth and leave the legacy you desire, you must release control to God. Relax and let God handle your affairs rather than trying to control it. This will allow you to operate on a level of faith that helps you fulfill purpose.
Faith is essential to achieve what you have been set out to do because it allows God to guide you.
Faith in God is different than having faith in oneself and it is deeper than mantras or affirmations. Faith in God is trusting in a person who can deliver, and God is the only person who can always produce and deliver what He promises.
"Everything else is sinking sand, but God holds my life in the palm of his hands"
It is costly not to trust God because wrong decisions can cause regret. It cost us our peace and strip us of our joy.
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
The word "as" is used to indicate that something happens during the time when something is taking place. So then, "as" you are "trusting" God will fill you with "joy and peace". The Scripture also says you will be overflowed with "hope".
God gave us an answer to live life with joy, peace, and hope and that is to trust Him.
With faith you will see that things that are humanly impossible is possible with God as you begin to do things you could not have done before. Our relationship with God makes impossible things become achievable.
When you know someone or have a connection with someone then you are aware of what they can do. When you have a connection with God you will be familiar with His abilities.
Act and live your life according to what God promised and what you asked for. Whatever you ask for in prayer believe that you have received it and it will be yours (Mark 11:24). Then show gratitude and be content as you trust God to make the right move. When this is done you will see the Scripture, "...All things are possible for one who believes.” come alive.
Faith is not denying that you are dealing with difficulties; it is being able to look beyond the problem to trusting God's timing.
"Faith is an element of the unknown. If you are not willing to function in the unknown, or if you have to have security, then you will never know what faith is!" —Lester Sumrall.
God's very nature and character is faithfulness and goodness. He is always constant and true and so is His Word. Neither He nor His Word will ever change. Malachi 3:6 says, “I the Lord do not change…” and Isaiah 55:10-11 tells us that God watches over His Word to make sure it happens.
As you grow in faith you will grow in success because faith is not concerned, bothered, or affected by outside sources or circumstances.
Success is not only monetary. Success is accomplishing a goal. If your goal is to have a healthy relationship and it happens, that’s success. If you had a target for your business and it came about, that's success. Anything you aimed for, and it was achieved is success.
When you grow in faith, confidence, and trust in God, your faith will get bigger. And you'll reach success in every area of your life.

A call for salvation
When you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, His spirit will come to live inside you. This is one of the greatest blessings of salvation. You don't have to go through someone else to get to God, and He will live in your heart where you and Him become one and have a relationship.
All you have to do is make the choice of salvation by repenting of your sins and accepting Jesus into your life by confessing that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that He came from Heaven to die for your sins (Romans 10:9).
Once you have done this, please pray and ask God to guide you to a church where you can grow, mature, and start living the abundant life Jesus promised and died for.
Here's a prayer you can repeat:
"Jesus, I confess that you are Lord, and I believe you died and was risen for my sins. I repent and ask for forgiveness of my sins, and I accept you as my personal Lord and Savior. Come into my heart and remove my sins. Thank you for forgiving me and making me into a new person in Jesus' name, Amen."
