Count The Cost And Then Pay The Price

Posted on


The bible says: For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Every true success must cost you something. If it does not cost you anything, then that is not true success. Before you begin the journey of success, you have to measure the cost and be ready to pay the price, because you can’t achieve success without paying the price.

True success is a battle field, your willingness to fight and win is the key to your greatness. If you make a decision and resolved that whatever life hands to you, you will carry on, there is nothing that can stop you from achieving the greatness for which you were created. True success must cost you something, and it could be anything, it could be your time, talent, energy and your resources, the inevitable ups and down or whatsoever. Your willingness to give it with zest is what determines your future. It takes determination to give out whatever life demands from you to get what you want. Jacob in the bible as a typical example today in our lesson determines to lose his thigh in other to achieve his destiny and partake of the promise that God promised to Abraham his father. That’s to say –  Determination + the cost + the willingness to give life what it takes = true success and personal achievement.

A man once said: “Some men give up their designs when they have almost at the edge of breakthrough, while others obtain a victory by exerting, at the last moment, more vigorous efforts than ever before”. In life, you are either driven by promise or pain, the promise of an abundant future, or the immediate need to change a painful situation. Because of the promise of abundant future, the promise that God promised to Abraham his father made Jacob to lose his thigh. Nothing goes for nothing in life, therefore, if you are ready for a change of story count the cost and go for it. B.C. Forbes said: “History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encounter heart breaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeat”
