One of the many issues we experience as human beings is that it is a major challenge for the majority of us to follow the right instructions… Their is a statement that one may have heard; especially from parents. The statement is, if I only had a manual!
One must dispel the myth and removes doubt of who, what, when, where, why and how success came about. It did not come from man it came from God, the spirit of God! It says that… “Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action)”, 2nd Timothy-3:16 AMP. You see, man wants to take credit for what we read today in personal and success books about goals, success and how to set them, and how to implement them, and how to reach them.
The fact of the matter is that these principles come from the Bible, and it clearly shows that when we read it and study it in the spirit. You see, the carnal minded person will misinterpret the Bible. Even to the point of interpreting it to fit his/her own situation in a carnal sense versus a spiritual sense. Since man is taking credit for these proven success principles, he/she is using them to make money for selfish gain. The sad part is that those who do this will not acknowledge God, the Bible or give credit to the source, which is God. The oldest book on earth and it contains everything we require for our success in all that we do in every area of our life! The best thing about it is that God promises it to us. It’s not that I am putting down books that man writes because the Bible, and God’s word was inspired by God to provide man spiritual insight on what to write in the 66 books that sums up the Bible.
