Knowing God better is the secret for a successful living. 1) God is the most powerful and gracious giver. He gives his people: a) Land - he makes the impossible possible for his people (Exodus 3:7-8; Numbers 13:31-33). Ownership was never a function of birth but a result of covenant. b) Rest - he enables his people to develop from a place of rest (Psalms 127:1-2). c) Victory - he fights his people’s battles (Exodus 14:13-14). The biblical notion of victory is tied to success because of God’s involvement. 2) God is the ultimate promise-keeper. Because of a) His nature (immutable, truthful, etc.), b) His love for his people, c) His Son’s work and d) His sovereignty. 3) God demands reciprocity. Real lasting prosperity and happiness depend on us being faithful to our God (Joshua 22:5-6). a) Love and obey Him unreservedly, b) Live in an honourable manner, c) Devote your life to Him and d) Dedicate your life to His service.
