Word for the day “What is Success in God”

16 Sep

I Chronicles 12:18 (NIV) Then the Spirit came on Amasai, chief of the Thirty, and he said: “We are yours, David! We are with you, son of Jesse! Success, success to you, and success to those who help you, for your God will help you. So David received them and made them leaders of his raiding bands.

Today word cup deals with Godly success for those that desire to do life God’s way. Please remember “This thing we call ‘failure’ is not falling down, but staying down.” I don’t have a problem with you getting knocked down I have a problem with you staying down sisters and brothers, in fact every time we get back up, we build character.

Life’s occasional setbacks are simply the price that we must pay for our willingness to take risks as we follow our God, dreams, and visions. But even when we encounter bitter disappointments, we must never lose faith. I really ascribe to this message today people of God.

Hebrews 10:36 advises, “Patient endurance is what you need now, so you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised” (NLT). These words remind us that when we persevere, we will eventually receive the rewards which God has promised us. What’s required is perseverance, not perfection.

When we face hardships, God stands ready to protect us. Our responsibility, of course, is to ask the Lord for protection. When we call upon God in heartfelt prayer, He will answer us in His own time and according to His own plan. And the Lord will do His part to heal us of whatever needs healing in our lives. We, of course, must do our part, too: Trust him to be Faithful!

And, while we are waiting for God’s plans to unfold and for His healing touch to restore us, we can be comforted in the knowledge that our Creator can overcome any obstacle, even if we cannot. Remember that failure isn’t permanent, unless you fail to get up. So pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and trust God. He will make it right. And don’t forget: the best time to begin again is right now.

Quote Warren Wiersbe: “No matter how badly we have failed, we can always get up and begin again. Our God is the God of new beginnings.”
