Leap Of Faith: Daily Lessons About Jesus Christ
Chapter: The Key (Pages 205-206)
When we consider success, we should be mindful of the two different types of success that exist. There is the success within the world, which mostly revolves around economics and the political arena, and there is success in God’s kingdom, which is eternal success. The problem in the world is that most people have put all of their heart and soul into achieving success from a material standpoint.
Now, this does not go without saying that we must have some way to provide for ourselves, but in most cases this is not an extremely difficult task to accomplish. There is also a solution in which we could change everything into a state that doesn’t revolve around money. With some education every single person has the ability to read, write, and do some arithmetic. It is not about being some major heavy hitter in the world that establishes your identity. The first step into understanding success is to find your spiritual sense of awareness with God. By increasing your knowledge and strength through just reading God’s Word,you will see what I am talking about.You will be blessed in ways that you never could understand before. Your comprehension will be increased to a level unattainable by the world. Your sense of truth and discernment will go beyond all human understanding. Your creative side will begin to shine, and you will know the power of God.
-YOU WILL BE ABLE TO COME UP WITH THE SOLUTIONS….
True success is not what you receive from man on earth but what you receive from God. God will do it all for you if you truly believe in Him and His works. Remember that God heals, strengthens, educates, guides, directs, appoints, and speaks to those who seek Him. This is the school of God and Christianity, which goes beyond any and all human understanding.
Some of the most intelligent, gifted, and successful people who I have met was while I worked in Sierra Leone, Africa. I worked on a team of twelve people who had little to no education. That group of people taught me more about life and the issues that count than any education I have received from any institution. The lesson is to learn from people who may not appear to be highly educated. They could be some of the most brilliant minds in the world. This is the truth that I came to know while serving in Sierra Leone. By forgetting all that I had learned in school and from society I was able to gain more understanding than I ever imagined. This is what God requires of us. He desires for us to do His work in places that need it the most, and by following His direction we have everything to gain, especially in being educated in the school of God.
It is not about the amount of money that you make. Do not get lost in politics and the busy world. Keep it simple, and strive to learn about God. Study different cultures and peoples in order to understand their points of view. This will be more knowledge than one can ever receive from any institution. Always give people an opportunity to teach you and to help you grow. Drop the ignorance and arrogance. This is the major problem that we see all the time in our country—the people that do not understand that God educates beyond all human understanding.
Who can compare to the mind of God? No one.

Chapter: Institutions V God (Pages 207-208)
“Listen, O my people, to my instruction; Incline your ears to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old, which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us. We will not conceal them from their children, but tell to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, and His strength and His wondrous works that He has done.”
Psalm 78:1-4 (nasb)
Do you want a solution for all the problems with the economy and unemployment in our world? The solution is lack of acknowledgment of God’s teachings. Know this: schools are teaching and promoting their own issues, regardless of what they might like to say. It is important to know the government’s role in influencing education. I now understand why so many parents have wished to home school their children. It is due to their personal desire for their children to understand the deep issues that schools will not teach.
To bring up leaders we need to be raising them with Christian morals and ethics. These Christian morals will mold them into the leaders that we need in the future. The lack thereof is the problem with our economy. It has been for a while now, since so much influence has been cast solely upon education and not directed toward God. Those that have used their knowledge of how the battle we face is one of a spiritual sense are taking advantage of those with lack of the spiritual sense of awareness. It is easy for the rulers, principalities, and powers to use this to their advantage. It will continue to get worse, and coercion of students will grow at an exponential rate if we do not take action to educate them on the issues that the world revolves around.
This is simply a must in our modern world, and without action it will not get better. You must also think on this level in order to perceive the big picture. Do not ignore the truth and the magnitude of the situation, as so many have in the past. Be smart, and beat the system at the game and control of your mind. Out think them. It is not about politics anymore. It is much bigger than any political idea. It all revolves around religion and lack thereof. This is truth.
I am not here to play the game. I am here to speak the truth….
