15 September 2023: THE DRIVE TO SUCCEED IS NOT EVIL (1) – Joshua 1:8; Genesis 39:2-6


Financial attitudes are the major cause of financial problems. Your attitude/mindset towards wealth will determine whether you can attract it or not, even though you are working for it.

One dangerous attitude that believers have is that “THE DRIVE TO SUCCEED IS EVIL.” It is a fatal attitude to think in your subconscious that the drive to succeed is evil. It is one of the ways the devil wants to keep the people of God away from success and progress. Being born again does not reduce your drive to succeed; it enhances it instead.

Adjust your thinking and balance your perspective about wealth so that you can have a righteous attitude towards it.

Today, you find a wrong notion among some Christians who withdraw from the drive to succeed when they get born again because the devil told them that the drive to succeed is evil. Some Christians hate success because nobody taught them that the drive to succeed is godly. Due to this misinformed abandonment of the drive to succeed “because it is evil”, most Christians end up as average mediocres and are satisfied. When someone with the correct view of life begins to preach something different from their misconception about success, they say such a person must be backsliding. Undoubtedly, there is an evil side to success where you step on everybody to succeed, but there is a good side to it as well.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive a renewal of my mind and a divine adjustment of my mindset to the divine standard of heaven for success and financial breakthrough in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Isaiah 19:1-21:17; Galatians 2:1-16; Psalm 59:1-17; Proverbs 23:13-14
