Thinking that your enlargement and financial breakthrough will only come by prayers is a mistake that many people make. Prayer will end at a time and then your work will increase. Never forget the three kinds of work every believer must master if they will experience divine involvement in their lives: knee work (prayers), mouth work (Confession of the word of God) and leg work (hard and strategic work). It is the combination of these three categories of work that gives birth to real, enduring success.

When your work increases, cutting church time down is a big mistake. People make this mistake because they forget their source, until the devil cuts them down. When your work increases, it is not church time or fellowship time that you cut down; it is your sleep time and social visit time that you cut down.  When your work increases, increase your quiet time and your bible study time. If you are going to be financially successful, do not take Sundays as a chance to travel. God’s time is very important, keep it for Him.

Generally speaking, most people that are serious with spiritual things are not practical enough to succeed; and most people that are serious with practical things are not spiritual enough to survive. You must decide to be a breed that will balance practicality with spirituality. God brings revelations and directions through your spirituality, but it is your practicality that turns the revelation into tangible wealth for you.

 

Wrong work or working with a wrong attitude is another mistake that people make that affects their financial lives. Don’t ever do less work. Most people are financially unsuccessful because they are doing a wrong work or working with a wrong mindset. Build an excellent attitude and locate yourself in the midst of the right work. Remember that attitude is stronger than God’s presence. It is your attitude that determines what you will become in that workplace. May you be in the center of God’s plan for your work life and may the grace for right attitude rest on you in Jesus name.

Prayer: Lord, I ask for grace and understanding to set a balance between spirituality and practicality. Lord help me to adjust my life and build a right, sound and great attitude to work and life at large in Jesus’ name. Amen.
