The Secret Of Success

The Secret Of Success

"If you forgive anyone, I also forgive him. And what I have forgiven— if there was anything to forgive— I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes." 2 Corinthians 2: 10

Love is the secret of our success. That’s why Satan is working day in and day out to pressure us to stop loving. It’s very important that we see what Satan’s trying to do, because if we pretend he’s not doing anything, we’re more likely to fall into his traps. We must study the Bible to know what love is. We also need to know what the enemies of love are, so when Satan tempts us with them, we can quickly recognize his strategies and say, "No, Satan! I refuse to do that." Some people don’t realize that resisting temptation is that simple, but it is! Temptation is nothing more than an invitation to do evil.

One reason we fail to reject Satan’s schemes is because we don’t recognize temptation for what it is. The enemies of love are things such as envy and jealousy. Pride, too, is listed in 1 Corinthians 13 as an enemy of love. It is an overly high opinion of yourself, exaggerated selfesteem or conceit and it shows itself through arrogant behavior.

Other enemies of love include bitterness, resentment and unforgiveness. Those three things are among the biggest obstacles to walking in love, especially for people who have truly been hurt or abused. Examine your heart. Are you walking in love, or do you see the enemies of love in your life? Love is the real secret to your success in relationships, in school, in your activities — everywhere. Make a firm decision today: I will walk in love!

My confession: "I reject and release my self from the grip of the spirit of infirmity and envy, my arms and hands have been made strong by the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob in Jesus name”. Genesis 49:24
