Bible Reading:   Proverbs 22:6 (AMP)

Memory VerseThough a righteous man falls seven times, he will get up, but the wicked will stumble into ruin. Proverbs 24:16 (HCSB)

Sing the hymn “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow” on page 103. There was a very brilliant boy, he always scored 100% in Science. He got selected in Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, and had excellent grades. He went to the University of California for MBA. He got a high paying job in America and settled there. He married a beautiful girl, bought a five room apartment and owned luxury cars. He had everything that makes a man successful but a few years ago, he committed suicide after shooting his wife and children. What went wrong? California Institute of Clinical Psychology studied his case and found “what went wrong?” The researcher met the boy’s friends and family and found that he lost his job due to the recent America’s economic crisis (COVID-19 pandemic) and he had to sit without a job for several months. After a reduction in his previous salary amount, he didn’t get any job. Then he was unable to service his house mortgage until he and his family lost their house. They survived a few months with little money and then he and his wife together decided to commit suicide. First, he shot his wife and children and then shot himself. The case concluded that the man was programmed for success but he was not trained to handle failures. Now, let’s come to the actual question. What are the habits of highly successful people? One of the best success habit is getting trained for handling failures. I want to request of every parent not to only program their children to be successful, but to also teach them how to handle failures. Learning high-level science and maths will help them to clear competitive exams but a knowledge of how life works will help them to face and surmount any problem that comes their way. Teach them about how money works instead of teaching them to work for money. Help them to find God’s purpose for their lives. Acquiring degrees may not help in the next economic crisis and no one  knows when the next crisis will hit the world. Success is a lousy teacher. Failure teaches you more.

Quote: If you don’t give up, you still have a chance. Giving up is the greatest failure – Jack Ma 

Prophetic Decree:  You will not give up to the pressures of life, in Jesus name.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 7, 27, 31, 34, 52


1. God sent His son, they called Him, Jesus

He came to love, heal and forgive

He lived and died to buy my pardon

An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives.


Because He lives, I can face tomorrow

Because He lives, all fear is gone

Because I know He holds the future

And life is worth the living

Just because He lives.

2. How sweet to hold a newborn baby

And feel the pride and the joy he gives

But greater still the calm assurance

This child can face uncertain days because He Lives.

3. And then one day, I’ll cross that river

I’ll fight life’s final war with pain

And then, as death gives way to vict’ry

I’ll see the lights of glory and I’ll know He reigns.
