Command 1 : Repent | Day 1

Welcome to Your First Day of the Daily Success Plan!

We are thrilled that this plan has the best guarantee in the world—it is guaranteed by God Himself. However, we must never forget that the guarantee is based on one requirement—to meditate on God's Law day and night. The purpose of this entire plan is to encourage and motivate us to be faithful in doing this.

The Law of Moses is a shadow of the brilliant light of Christ's commands. Thus, for our first week of meditation, we will concentrate on the following verse:

Command One: “Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17).

Our plan is to memorize this verse and quote it back to God at least ten times throughout the day. On our Web site dailysuccess.org, you will receive a wealth of practical information on this plan to help you meditate day and night.

For each command, we have a study question. If you can answer this question, you will understand the essence of the command. Why not read the study question to your whole family in the morning and see what their answers are by the evening?

Study Question One: "Why did Esau find no place of repentance for simply selling his birthright while David found repentance for adultery and murder?" (See Hebrews 12:16-17 and Psalms 51.)

We want to explain how each command is directly related to success, so how does repentance relate? Repentance puts us into fellowship with the Lord and allows Him to bless everything we do. Our greatest asset is the blessing of the Lord, because “the blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich and he addeth no sorrow with it” (Proverbs 10:22). Without God's blessing, Satan is given opportunity to devour our strength, family, health, and resources, so that there is no possible way to be successful.

Another major key to success is to understand why God designed our day to begin in the evening and not the morning. This key will be explained in tomorrow's e-mail.

“Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17).
