Success Belongs to You

I love new things don’t you? What can compare to the smell, feel and touch of new shoes or leather seats inside of a new car or the scent in a freshly painted house? But new gets old quickly; the shoes are pushed to the back of the closet (with the rest of the ‘new’ shoes), the leather seats get broken in-- we plop down on them without a second thought and, some days we just don’t feel like cleaning that beautiful house. It is our nature to give up on things quickly, to grow bored and tired of what use to excite us.

God places within us dreams and visions; we are made with purpose and on purpose. He is not a creator of accidental inventions or experimental concoctions. He is the embodiment of intent and destiny. We awaken when we hear that voice urging us to get up and do. And when the vision becomes clear—oh my! In the days and weeks that follow we move and are excited and can barely behave. With the newness of this energy our capacity to create, build and motivate is limitless. We start that business plan, book or play or seek investors for that new business. We cannot fail. Furthermore it seems like the entire world is on our side cheering us on and it’s as if we can do anything but fly. Success belongs to us.

And then inevitably it happens—the pangs of life come into play. The work is hard—sometimes grueling, the folks that said that they would—don’t. The investment of time, work and energy seems daunting and takes its toll. And we think—it shouldn’t be this hard after all I’m gifted and God said this was mine. We begin to back paddle or worse yet we seek out a new venture. (Remember I said everybody likes new.)

Listen to this—just because it’s God-given doesn’t mean it’s not work. Remember Jesus’ great sacrifice? That was not a pretty sight up there on the cross. He knew we were worth it. Your dedication and work is worth it. You will fall, get tired, grow weary and do a lot of sighing—maybe some crying. But grab hold to his hand and move. Move even when your cheerleaders pack up their pompoms and go home, when folks question whether or not this really was a smart move. Move, push, push. Learn to
become your own motivator and listen to that voice. Whatever you do, don’t stop. You will not fail. Success belongs to you.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
