Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD; I will take joy in the God of my salvation. – Habakkuk 3:17-18 ESV
How we define success matters. When you know Why you are here and whose you are, then what to do is a lot easier. What are you working towards and how do you know if you have had a good day or not? When you begin your day, “What is your outcome?” Are you working toward your kingdom or the Kingdom of God?
Leader, do you believe SUCCESS is defined by God’s WILL and GOD’s WAY and GOD’s WORD? True followers of Christ define success as “Walking in the Will of God”. When we know WHY we are here, and we know the PURPOSE of our BEING, then what DEFINES success is different than the rest of the WORLD!
Conduit, Though the cherry trees don’t blossom and the strawberries don’t ripen, Though the apples are worm-eaten and the wheat fields stunted, Though the sheep pens are sheepless and the cattle barns empty, I’m singing joyful praise to God. I’m turning cartwheels of joy to my Savior God. Counting on God’s Rule to prevail, I take heart and gain strength. I run like a deer. I feel like I’m king of the mountain! (MSG v17-19). This is to truly have success! Amen!
