WHAT IS SUCCESS FOR YOU?
Text : Genesis 39:2a
“The Lord was with Joseph, so he succeeded in everything he did…” NLT
Friend, what is success for you…if I may ask?
Success, for me, is looking at my life, or my results at every point in time, and seeing that it’s a confirmation of the Word of God…
It’s so fulfilling! It always turns my straight heart up to my Father, God in gratitude and tearful thanksgiving, praise and worship…
It’s always an overwhelming moment for me…So great in its effect on me!
Success for me, is seeing the Word of God produce in my life as I have believed it!
Success for me, is seeing God’s awesome investments in me producing great profits for him…in impact and influence on others…
Just as he said to Abraham in Genesis 12:2
“I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others.” NLT
Maybe you don’t know this…God is a very profit-oriented business “man”. Oh yes! That’s what the principle of seed time and harvest is all about – Genesis 8:22.
God demands a Genesis 12:2 dimension of success for everyone who has become a beneficiary of his accomplished plan and purpose in Christ…
Because for God, it will always be about his world of humanity…which he created for his own pleasure and not for satan, sin and hell!
“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” NLT
God will always be a people person…So, learn to define your success, accomplishments and fulfillment, by your impact and positive influence on others ( beginning with your marriage and family)…Yes!
How can you claim to be a successful person, when your marriage is a mockery to God…and your relationship with members of your family is so counterproductive?
The life in Christ is the “goodest” life any man can ever ask for…And it flourishes more and more when you’re living it to bring God’s blessings to people…and bring them closer to God. Alleluia!
