The Word of God is the wisdom of God. It makes no difference how educated you are, how many books you've read, or what you think you know in life, or about life; if you don't have the Word in you, you can't function in the wisdom of God.
This is the first thing the Holy Spirit does in your life. He brings you God's presence, and when He does, you will no longer be in the dark. The Holy Spirit has a beautiful identity. He is called 'The Angel of God's presence.' He is the One Who brings us the presence of God and makes it real to us.
The other hand, the one who lives without vision, purpose and a sense of direction, will certainly experience failure in life. For many years, I've exceeded my goals, and the reason is simple: I chose to win and applied the principles of success. Success isn't accidental, and it's not enough to hope for it; you make it happen and it'll be so.
Success and failure are neither accidental nor mysterious. If you consistently practise the principles of success according to God's Word, as recorded in our opening verse, you're guaranteed to experience good success in every area of your life.
There's an anointing the Spirit of God brings into your life; and that anointing gives you insight into the things of God. It opens the mind of God to you and unveils the riches of His glory to you. God said, 'I will no longer hide my face from them,' because of the outpouring of His Spirit, Hallelujah!
Excellence means that you're prospering spiritually, mentally, physically and in every area of life. What does it mean to prosper? It means to do well, to have over and above, to walk in a high level with God. It means to be in a high class with God, where you can think like God and live like Him.
