In life, there are winners and losers. The fact is we must all cultivate the passion for winning and mentality of a winner against all odds.
We’re going to be talking about the lifestyle of a man called Joseph whom has exhibited the acts of a true Biblical winner against all difficulties and challenges he was able to survive.
If you want to fulfill the purpose of God for your life there’s need for you to be under the compulsion of the following attribute of a spiritual winner.
1. You must be spirit filled.
Genesis 41:38 And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?
- Just as we can see in the life of Joseph let your life be filled with God’s presence always.
2. You must translate God’s plan for your life into ACTION.
- Joseph exercise the plans of God for his life in action and followed suite the dreams God has given him concerning his life.
- Ask yourself, am i putting the vision of God for my life into action?, just as Joseph did.
3. You must learn to raise to the top in every Training of life.
Genesis 41:39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art: 41:40 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.
- So raising to the top should be your priority against all odds in every environment you might find yourself.
4. You must have a proper planning that will have you take a responsibility to your success in life.
- Genesis 41:28 This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: What God is about to do he sheweth unto Pharaoh. 41:29 Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt: 41:30 And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land; 41:31 And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine following; for it shall be very grievous. 41:32 And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass. 41:33 Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt. 41:34 Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, and take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years. 41:35 And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities. 41:36 And that food shall be for store to the land against the seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish not through the famine.
- Following God plans for our lives get us transformed and established for more responsibility and Success.
- Every individuals whom must excel has to take responsibility for anything he does and be focus inspite of challenges that may comes his ways.
5. You must learn to give the credit of the Success to God (the honour and Glory must be ascribeb back to God).
- Genesis 41:15 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that thou canst understand a dream to interpret it. 41:16 And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.
- It was seen in the life of Joseph that he never fill he attained all he has with his power rather he gives God all the glory for the privilege of the Success, so likewise should your own be if you want to make exceptional Success in life.
6. I must be ready and be at alert for opportunity.
- Genesis 41:14 Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh.
- We can say Joseph is prepared and not at the same time prepared, so in the journey for having the winning edge in all we do there should always be preparation that will take us into promotion.
- Right there in prison, before the prison encounter he has always prepared himself for the top.
7. We must all learn the importance of serving God.
8. You must always make yourself available for God to use you.
- Joseph was used and becomes a reference point because he made himself available for God used. If you must become a winner there must be every tendency of you making yourself available for God use.
