In life, there is a spiritual aspect to everything and the same thing applies to success also. There are spiritual laws of success which if followed attracts success to you. That is the real law of attraction.
Everything that you can see in the physical was first of all birthed in the spiritual.
Which is why God had to speak before light could come into the world and also by His words other creations were formed.
As you can see that God is the spiritual being and He has the power to create all things into the physical state.
The physical laws and the spiritual laws of success are not the same. They are always pointing in opposite directions.
Some Spiritual Laws Of Success
Spiritual law 1: Give to others
“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure pressed down, shaken together, running over will they put into your lap. For with that measure you measure, it will be measured again to you.”
In the world everybody wants to get something from other people and often times do not want to give.
Naturally we are all selfish, we all want to get more riches, wealth, pleasures and the good things of life than others around us.
We have seen life as a competition therefore we believe that when we give, our resources are reduced thereby enriching our competitors.
According to the physical law, when you give, there is reduction and when you get from others, there is increase.
But looking at our first spiritual law of success, it says that when you give, you will also receive in return.
Most successful person understands this spiritual law and that is why you see them giving back to the society.
You see them come up with foundations to take care of the less privileged, homeless and to special children.
They do all these because they know the spiritual implications, which is that such giving attracts more success to them.
So, you can see that the spiritual law of success when you give, you will experience increase and when you keep collecting from others, you will experience decrease.
You will also notice that most stingy people don’t get rich because they don’t follow the spiritual law of giving
You can liken stingy people to a stagnant water that do not release water. What happens in such a case is that such water gets dirty and polluted.
But a giver can be likened to a river that gives off water and continue to receive new inflow
Spiritual law 2: Meditation
“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” Joshua 1:8
What you think about in your heart has a great effect on your future. If you think about positive things, you will definitely get positive results.
When you start thinking negatively, you will get negative results. The most common type of negative thinking is worrying.
Worry is also a form of thinking but it’s just that you are looking at things bin a different angle.
We worry whenever our plans do not go according to plan.
When we worry, we think of all the things that have gone wrong and that is a negative thinking pattern. When you think in a negative pattern, you will definitely get negative results.
You should read the word of God which is the Bible because it is in there that you will find all the spiritual blessings God has given you already.
After reading the word of God, you should go a step further to meditate on it. Think about it in your quiet time and that is a positive thinking pattern.
When you think positively, you will definitely get positive results.
You can also listen to musics when meditating, it will help you think deep about life issues.
Spiritual law 3: Add value to others
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
Success comes from you being willing to help others and helping others by adding value to them.
The most important commandment of God is to love God and the second is to live your neighborhood as yourself.
And the way you can seek the kingdom of God is by following His commandments.
If you can follow the first two commandments, every other thing will follow.
If you can love your neighbor, you will definitely be successful in life. One of the ways to love your neighbors is by helping them.
Most successful people in life got to that level because of their quest to help others by finding solution to an existing problem.
If you can provide solutions for people thereby helping them solve their problems, then you will definitely be successful in life.
Spiritual law 4: Gratitude
“And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks, He distributed them to the disciples, and the disciples to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted.” John 6: 11
The way we have been structured in life is to see the things we don’t have and complain about them.
As humans we can complain a lot, we complain about the government, we complain about our parents, we complain about everybody else except ourselves.
As you can see in story before the verse above, the disciples of Jesus were complaining about having numerous people and not having enough food to feed them.
But Jesus instead of complaining, gave thanks to God for the small food available for the large crowd. And when He gave thanks, the food that wasn’t enough became excess that they even had baskets leftover.
The same spiritual law applies in life, when you are grateful for what you have, you will get more and attract more success to you.
But when you are not grateful for what you have, Eve that which you have will be taken away from you.
Spiritual law 5: No idleness
“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going.” Ecclesiastes 9:10
Idleness is not allowed, if you want to be successful in life.
Being idle means wasting time and doing nothing when there are things to be done.
Idleness could come in various form. On one hand you be idle without knowing and on the other hand you can purposely be idle.
For instance, some people will not do a work they don’t have Passion for and they keep waiting for the work they desire but that’s idleness in way.
The spiritual law supports you to do whatsoever work you can so far it is good.
When you start with that, more opportunities will definitely come your way.
Whenever you have the opportunity to work, make good use of that opportunity and do your best at it.
Spiritual law 6: Work hard
“Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.” Proverbs 22:29
Whatever is worth doing is worth doing well, that is the spirit you should always have in life.
It is not just enough to work but you need to always put in your best into every work you do.
It is not the amount of work you do that matters but it is how well you do your work that matters.
When you put your best into everything you do, you will always get the best result you can get.
But when work shabbily, the result you will get is also a shabby result. So, make sure you put your best into everything you do if you want to be successful in life.
Spiritual law 7: Pray
“Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.” Proverbs 16:3
One important spiritual law you should also follow is praying to God regularly.
Praying to God is a sign of humility, asking you to help you succeed in your endeavors.
When you have a plan and you don’t know what to do about it, you need a spiritual power to support you and you can only get
Prayer is the key that can open spiritual doors for you. So, if you want to be successful, one of the spiritual laws you should follow is praying without ceasing
Spiritual law 8: Have vision
“Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. “Habakkuk 2:2
You need to have a vision if you want to be successful in life and it doesn’t just stop there. You also need to write your visions out.
When you write your vision out, it will make you remember the things you need to pursue and achieve.
Living a purpose driven Life doesn’t come by mistake or chance. Living a purpose driven Life happens because you know what you want in life and you are willing to pursue it.
You also need to be specific about your vision, you should know the exact thing you want.
You should also take time to think about your vision. On how it can be achieved because that is when it can come to life.
Having a vision alone does not guarantee success in life but vision is important if you must succeed in life.
Spiritual law 9: Get knowledge
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.” Hosea 4:6
I’m sure you might be surprised about this but it is in the Bible. Most people do not succeed in life because they lack the required knowledge needed to succeed in life.
We need knowledge in different areas of our life and if we don’t have those knowledges, we will likely fail in that aspect of life.
One of the ways to get knowledge is by reading books. You can always get books related to different areas of your life.
If you don’t like reading books, you can download audio books which you can listen to.
Another way to get knowledge is by befriending and listening to successful people to learn their strategies. You can also make them you mentors if they accept to mentor you.
Living your life base on knowledge and mentorship allows you to avoid common errors another fall into.
Spiritual law 10: Make plans
“A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.” Proverbs 16:9
One other spiritual law you need to follow is planning.
When you fail to plan, it means you are planning to fail but when you plan, it means you are planning to succeed.
It is better to plan and take action even if you fail rather than not to plan at all.
Before you make start any project you need to make plans about it. Making plans makes you achieve success faster.
