Go For Good Success

The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it.
Proverbs 10:22

Go For Good Success
God does not want you to just experience success in your life. He wants you to experience good success. Is there such a thing as “bad success”?

Yes there is and I am sure you have seen it yourself. There are people who have plenty of money, but their lives are scarred by one broken marriage after another. There are also people who are so busy with their careers that they no longer have time to put their kids to bed nor spend any quality time with them. Being a public success but a private failure is not good success at all!

Good success comes from the Lord. It is success that has no sorrow or grief added to it. So depend on Jesus’ unmerited favor to bring you to a place of good success. Don’t say, “I’ll do it my way!” Let Him do it. Let Him open the right doors and close the wrong ones. Let Him put you at the right place at the right time. Keep your eyes on Him and not the things you have or want. This will keep you walking in the kind of success that truly blesses you and makes you a blessing to others.
