Success from God’s Hands
This is the day the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24 (HCSB)
Do you want your joy to be complete? Do you want your success to be secure? Let it come from God’s hands. It’s not wrong to pray for success. But it’s wrong trying to be successful our own selfish way. God’s path to success is unusual. It’s not smooth, but rough, with thorns springing out from the ground, with sleepless nights, and hard-laboured days. It may not look like it’s going to take you anywhere. But if walked hand in hand with Him, your success is guaranteed.
This is the day the LORD has made. You couldn’t have reached this day in your own strength. Actually this day didn’t even exist. ‘There is no way you could succeed in your enterprise,’ so many people have said. ‘You’re going against reason,’ others have discouraged you. But still you’re here, after being made successful by God. You rejoice and nothing can still away the joy from you.
After God has shown you His path to success, what is it that puts you off from taking it? The sacrifice involved? The loneliness of walking only with Him? Or the success itself? Come, let’s walk it together!
