Biblical principles of success in business and project execution are applicable in all sectors of human life. Most formulated management principles on success have their bearing from the Bible. God has designed us to succeed and prosper to the extent of being able to lend to the nations. Failure to meet up with this standard subjects us to the proverb 6:6 statement.

In this study, we intend to make you rich and change the operational poverty mentality to a wealth creation ability. Poverty is bad, it’s mentality is not of Christ and must be resisted and intentionally fought. You were not licensed to be poor. Even if that is the case, we are commissioned to change your status. Similarly too, project execution under God’s supervision can never be abandoned. God does not abandon projects.

QUALITIES THAT PROMOTE SUCCESS AND FRUITFULNESS
1. ABILITY TO RECOGNIZE OPPORTUNITIES: Gen. 8: 22; 12:1-3; Exo 1:15-21; Ruth 1:11-18; 2:1-7, 15-22. Ability to quickly identify the hidden treasure or golden opportunity and take advantage of it is very rewarding. The call to Abraham to relocate came at a very critical moment when he was expected to settle down and consolidate on the gains of his father’s inheritance. It must have been a tough decision to make, his ability to move was the key to his future.

As for Ruth, so many things clouded the future and were enough to ever imagine coming out of the mess. Her resilience and foresight to relocate and get herself engaged in her new country coupled with her dedication to work advertised her. God saw in her the qualify of life that cannot be resisted, bypassed all tribal sentiments and made her the great grandmother of David and consequently engrafted into the lineage of the Messiah. Let not your present circumstances cause you to commit suicide. What will God have you do?

2. CRITICAL THINKING AND SELF-DEVELOPMENT: Prov. 23:6-7; Isa. 40:28-30; 1 Cor. 10:12. 15:9-10. The ability to generate new ideas by approaching problems or existing practices in an innovative way is what makes the difference and attracts customers. Critically thinking is the awakening of the intellectual power in you to form opinions on which your business or ideas can be revolved to results. The day Jacob deployed this skill. His Boss became his boy while he took over the mastership.

Hear the bitter complains of an ailing business man’s sons that once boomed. Gen. 31:1-3. Your inability to think is the untapped industry that will finally end up in the grave unestablished. Every progress we see today is built on this simple principle. Someone somewhere is busy thinking of how to design some new thing. Today, almost everything is becoming smart. Redemption Ministries Bible Study 7 September 2022 Outline

Only, a few years ago no one could imagine that the post office that once boomed with the post master priding himself as occupying a prestigious office will one day be redundant as a result of technological advancement, typists that vowed never to leave typewriters as their work have been disengaged from their jobs. Don’t be left behind, computer is not witchcraft. Develop yourself and remain relevant.

Success and promotion in life is not necessarily a function of first come or growing gray hair in the job by reason of when you were employed without improving yourself. Small boys with first class will put you out of the job by their productivity. You cannot keep marking time with the typewriter while others have grown to where they only speak and their words are typed.

3. CREATIVITY, INNOVATION AND IMAGINATION: 1 Kings 10:1-9; 2 Kings 4:8-14, 17; 7:1-20. The ability to embark on creative thinking in order to develop new products and services. It may entail deploying resources to get it right. Creativity brings the best out of an individual. Innovation is the extra step that makes the extra ordinary amongst the ordinary that many are embarking on.

You cannot be doing the same thing over and over and expect different results. Even God in His creation process was pragmatic in His approach. The four lepers became the objects of economic revival through their creative imagination. The thought to bear record that they died in active service rather than being starved to death provoked and propelled them to match into the camp of the enemy for business venture. This decision brought a turn-around in the entire nation. Don’t ever underestimate a man with business ideas.

4. DILIGENCE, ZEAL AND PASSION: Prov. 22:29; Keen interest and passion for your job, business is what brings you to the limelight. These elements drive business and sustain it. No zeal means no business. “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.” Eccl. 9:10.

HYMN – FORTH IN THY NAME OH LORD I COME
