Success implies independence, excellence, power, wealth, and a host of other things we enjoy. Your success is good for your economic stability, and indirectly, it’s good for the nation.
But can we acknowledge our creator who is the author of all good things, including success? Reaching success implies independence. But dependence on God is the ultimate success. The words of king David shows how he understood his success.
“O Lord, in your strength the king rejoices, and in your salvation how greatly he exults!” (Psalm 21:1)
“For the king trusts the Lord and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be moved.” (Psalm 21:7)
The kings of Israel learned that trust in the Lord is vital for success. Their efforts, hard work, long hours, and the ongoing strategizing found its fulfilment in God alone.
Do what you need to do, but trust in the Lord to bring you success. Let God’s love for you sustain you.
