With success comes responsibility and commitment. We can’t be successful when we just let life happen to us. We have to make things happen. We have to stand up and be responsible enough to do the right thing. We have to be committed to help others with the gift God has given us and trust Him to help us. When we waiver or doubt or have fear or want to give up, we aren’t going to be successful.
Romans 12:7-8 “If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us to take our responsibilities seriously. Whatever it is You want us to do, help us to be responsible and committed to doing it. We know when we waiver and begin trying to do things on our own we aren’t going to be successful. We know we need to trust in You and allow You to work through us so we can succeed. We know we need to never give up. Help us today to stay focused on our work for You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
