1Samuel 11:12 “And the people said unto Samuel, Who is he that said Shall Saul reign over us? bring the men, that we may put them to death”

1Samuel 11:13 “And Saul said There shall not a man be put to death this day: for to day the LORD hath wrought salvation in Israel.”

When you have become successful you must tread with caution. Success as they say is not a destination, it is a journey.

Success begets success and this implies that how you manage your last success will go a long way in determining what will happen in your next fight.

After they won the fight, some of Saul’s supporters became overambitious. They were blowing Saul’s horn and inflating his ego. They wanted the whole world to know that a champion has been born. You can be sure that these overzealous guys were just looking for the favour of Saul.

As much as they kept blowing his horn, Saul never allowed all they said get to his head. He did the most important thing to do when you’ve just experienced success; returning all the glory to God!

Beloved, don’t ever be deceived into thinking that you can achieve success all by yourself. The first and most important thing you need is the backing of heaven. Once you have God on your side, victory is certain.

Deuteronomy 8:17, 18 “And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God…”

Friend, when you don’t remember God after a victory, you have set up failure somewhere in your future. Don’t suddenly ascribe the glory of God to yourself, He is keenly waiting for it.

Jesus operated on earth as God but he used this principle to great effect, hear him:

John 5:30 “I can of mine own self do nothing…”

He told us expressly that all we see him do was because he had the backing of the Father, how much more you and I?

I want you to know that you didn’t achieve that success because you fasted and labored in the place of prayer, you did because God helped you. Why not take out time to praise Him now?

Love you BiG
