Apostle Grace Lubega
Proverbs 6:23 (KJV); For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
The Lord is a God of principles. His principles define the hows of life: how to grow in ministry, how to build a business, how to preserve a marriage, how to raise your children, how to deal with your superiors or how to increase your finances.
If you ever find yourself struggling in any area of life, you must ask yourself if you are approaching it the God-way.
In Haggai 1:5-7, the Bible says, “Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.”
A man in whom the excellent spirit works is aggressively diligent in applying these principles. If the Word of God says that this is how we build ministry, that man is uncompromising in applying the principles of the scriptures in building ministry. If the scriptures point us to how we increase in wealth, that man can never look for a soft landing spot in applying these principles.
If it is a principle laid down by God, apply it like everything depends on it because it does.
The God of principles is honour bound to fulfill His Word. You will see the results you desire.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The Lord is a God of principles. His principles define the hows of life: how to grow in ministry, how to build a business, how to preserve a marriage, how to raise your children, how to deal with your superiors or how to increase your finances.
PRAYER: Loving Father I thank You for this truth. I walk in the understanding of your principles and I live my life after the patterns You have laid before me for my success. In this wisdom, I live in victory all the days of my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
