God's Plan for Success #2

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6

"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." Romans 12:2

for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. Philippians 2:13


Most people would tell you that success is about how much money they have earned and how many degrees they have gathered, and others would argue that success is about how long they have been married and how many kids they have. Is that real success? Having your career and relationship dreams come true? Getting all you ever want? Earning enough money so that you never have to work again? Allow me to tell you that tell that real success is more fulfilling than wealth. Success is the realization of the will of God for your life. It's not how much money you have at the bank or under your mattress. It's not how healthy you are. It's not how many friends you have or how many cars, planes, houses and yachts you have acquired. Success is nothing more and nothing less, than the realization of the will of God for your life.

Friend, you cannot know success unless you pursue the will of God. Most people do not know the will of God before they never asked him what His will was for their lives. They don't ask because they are not ready to do it. They are afraid to ask because they do not want to be accountable for doing His will. The Bible say in Matthew 7:7 "Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you." Do you want to know God's will? Do you want your heart's desire to come true? Ask God to direct your path. He will do it through His Word. The Word of God is the Will of God. Also, do not forget to pray. Prayer works. Prayer is still the best tool when it comes to communication with God.cFriend, when you completely rely on God, He will direct your path and only then will you know real success.

Let God lead you. Let God show you His plan for your success. Depend on God and know a peace you never thought possible.

Praise the Lord!
