Everyone wants to be a success. Nobody sets out to fail. 
 
While none of us can go back and undo the mistakes of yesteryear, each of us has the option of becoming successful from here on out. We can either begin that journey for the first time, or we can continue the journey of fulfilling God’s destiny for us as kingdom men and women.
 
In Psalm 25:14, God gives us the secret to living a life of success: “The secret of the Lord is for those who fear Him, and He will make them know His covenant” (Psalm 25:14).
 
To know God’s covenant is to know His favor and His blessings, as His covenant is expressly tied to His covering.
 
To know God’s covenant is to know His favor and His blessings, as His covenant is expressly tied to His covering. As you align yourself underneath God’s relational and covenantal rule in your life, you will experience the spiritual success you desire. For it is only in becoming a kingdom man that you will find God’s path to becoming who He created you to be. And my new book, Kingdom Men Rising, will show you how.
 
The way you honor and respect God and His Word will directly impact your level of spiritual success.
 
But there is a condition to success revealed in this verse as we look more closely. The secret of success hinges upon it. This condition is that you only get to know God’s covenant as you fear Him. There is a cause-and-effect scenario for achieving spiritual success which is related to the proper fear of God. The way you honor and respect God and His Word will directly impact your level of spiritual success. You can’t dishonor Him in your decisions and expect to achieve any level of kingdom success. God has a standard and He does not adjust that standard to the wiles of mankind or the current cultural norms.

So, pursue success by pursuing God.
