May 16, 2018 GREAT SUCCESS
Success in this world can be achieved many ways. We can have great friends. We can be extremely wealthy. We can have a fulfilling job and a loving family. Success for each person is different. However, the world tends to define success as riches and fame. But even those with all these things are not truly successful. They may have all they need from this world but their hearts may not be right or they may still feel empty inside. God is what we truly need for success. He can give us all we need. Without Him we will continue to find ourselves struggling and seeking something to keep us satisfied and stable.
Proverbs 12:3 “Wickedness never brings stability, but the godly have deep roots.” (NLT)
1. Write down your definition of success.
2. List ways you have tried to succeed.
3. Know real success comes from God.
4. Seek Him and His word to see what He wants you to do.
Dear Lord, we pray You will help us to seek only You for what we need. Help us to remember people will let us down. Remind us riches of this world will not last. Keep us in Your word and show us Your way to live. We know through obedience to You we can find what we need to develop deep spiritual roots that bring true success. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
If we want to a life that brings worldly riches, we won’t ever be satisfied.
If aren’t satisfied with life, we are looking to the world for success rather than God.
We can’t do what we need to truly succeed unless we put God first in our lives.
The secret to great success is to keep our eyes on God.
When we commit our actions to God, we are promised success.
Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.” (NLT)
