Pursue, Overtake and Recover - 7 Biblical Rules of Success

Pursue, Overtake and Recover – 7 Biblical Rules of Success

Are you ready to pursue your dream and live your dream life?
Then pursue, overtake and recover.

That was the command God gave to David in the bible, When David lost everything upon his return.
Christianity has now been misinterpreted with a lot of false teachers teaching prosperity messages without going into depth.

They tell you that when you give a seed faith, then God will wrought wonders in your life, but they did not tell you that you need to be a strong believer of Jesus.
You cannot buy God’s miracle and prosperity, neither do you merit it.

But through faith in the Jesus and following the other principles in the Bible will you then achieve it.
Actually there are many principles in the Bible for various things on the earth.
The principles in the Bible are like scripts for unlocking the various aspects in life.

So in this post, I will be sharing with you 7 principles in achieving success. Pursuing, overtaking and recovering all you have lost.

Being a Christian does not limit you from being successful. The Bible has the best advice for success if you are hungry for success.

The principles in the bible will help you in getting to your dream land and living your dream life. But many people seem to be blind to the rules of the Bible and think of success as the opposite of living an humble life.

Many of us have been robbed ourselves of our potential. Though its true that witches and wizard operate the world of darkness and also rob people of their potential and glory.

But truth be told that a lot of people have not been robbed by witches and wizards but by their own self.

If you are sound and fit spiritually and physically then you would have no reason to worry about the witches and wizards.

These people or spirit that we know as agents of devils are powerless if we do not allow them an entrance into your life.

You allow them an entrance into your life if you do not believe in God and in yourself.
So let get into details now.

1.    Be Diligent

Seeth thou a man diligent in his works, he shall sit and dine with rulers.

If you want to be successful then you have to be diligent in what you do.  If you are not diligent in what you do then there is no way you will be proud of what you do.

If you are diligent in what you do, then in no time you will be among the top best in your field.
And once you get there, you will have a high self-esteem because you know what you do.

2.    Believe in yourself

Having a belief in your self will be a relief to you and the people who associate with you. Every courageous man has a bit of fear but are courageous because they do not show their fear to others.
Just believing in yourself will make others to believe in you.

People will only trust and follow those they believe in.
Believing in yourself is very important as it makes you a leader. And as a leader you have to believe in what you do to make others follow you.

Do not show fear or disbelief in what you do because of those that look up to you.

3.    Pray

Prayer is the most under-utilized spiritual tool in Christianity. Prayer is known as the key but many
people only know it as the key literally.

They tend to search deep into their own knowledge to look for other keys to success.

But and all of it will look promising but they are not long lasting.
They are just short-cuts that make the way to success very long and tiring.

That is exactly what happens when you only believe in your strength only and not in God.
You cannot displace God in the equation of success and expect a result.

The equation is inbalanced when there are too many variables that are unknown.
So you need to put God in the equation to get a result.

And that is where prayer comes in.
Prayer is the greatest weapon and most under-utilized in the spiritual and physical war-fare.

And a typical example of prayer that move the heavens is the prayer that Jacob prayed in the Bible. Jacob prayed all through the night and there was a change of name.

But you need understand something that Jacob is a farmer and has been working diligently but
 needed the heavenly push.

And he only achieved this through prayer. He prayed until the angel of God appeared unto him.

4.    Wrestle and Fight for your ideas

Now we know that everyone have ideas that they want to implement.

In this world, there are a lot of people with ideas and getting people to believe in your ideas is another thing you need to achieve.

And that is where wrestling and fighting for your ideas come into place.

On your mission to be successful, there would be haters who would tell you that it is impossible to
achieve that.

They are not telling because they felt compassion for you, they just do not want you to try or stand a chance of succeeding.
This is also plastered in the Bible.

Jacob is known as a man who wrestled with the Lord in order to have a change in his destiny.
There is no bigger fight or strong will other than what Jacob did in his time.

5.    Keep Learning

The search for knowledge will increase – that is what the Bible made us to understand, Which is why you cannot risk not educating yourself daily and improving yourself.

Learning new things should be your priority. In your field of work, you need to keep educating yourself in your field of work.

My people perish because they lack wisdom.
Wisdom is the principal thing, get wisdom and with all your getting get understanding.

That is how important knowledge is. You cannot obtain knowledge without studying and gaining experience.
So if you want to succeed in this present world, you need to keep learning and improving yourself.

6.    Hardwork

 Nothing can be achieved with a lazy hand. You need to be hard-working in order to attain success in life.

For you to pursue and overtake you need to be hard-working.
Keep running and running until it is over.
It is not over yet until it is over.

When David was pursuing, he and his soldiers must have been tired from the war they just ended not to talk of the journey.

But still regardless of all that they took their sword and still pursued their enemies.

You need to pursue your dreams regardless of what you are going through.
Remember you are not the only going through that difficult situation and you are not the first to go through that.

So you need to put in the hard-work and neglect the situations around your life.
Remember hard-work pays.
When you put in the hard-work then will you be able to achieve your dreams and attain success.

7.    Let it out

There was a beggar that has been at the gate of a public hall for a long time begging for alms. One day an old man came by and he stretched his arms expecting to receive something from him.

“I have nothing to give you” – the old man said. “What are you sitting on?” – he continued.

“Nothing really, it a wooden box that I have sat on for as long as I can remember” – the beggar
replied.  “What is inside?” – the old man asked. “hopefully nothing because this box has been year
for so long” –the beggar resisted.

“Open the box and check what’s inside” – the old resisted.

And when the beggar checked inside the box, he saw gold coins in it. And this box has been what he sat on for as long as he could remember but never looked inside.

So this is the last tip I will be sharing with you, look deep inside yourself and let out the hidden treasures in you.

Do not argue and stop begging around when you have something worth more than the treasure anyone can offer you.

So you need to let it out.
Let out the potentials in you.

Someone once said that the richest place on the earth is the Graveyard.
And I asked why?

He replied because many people die without using their potential, so they are buried with their potential.

Do not be one of those that would keep contributing to the wasted treasures in the graveyard.
Go and LET IT OUT.
