God wants you to be successful! He already has plans laid out for you. All you have to do is simply walk where He leads you. The Lord gave us His Word, along with the Holy Spirit, and the opportunity to commune with Him in prayer as means for direction. He has already set you up to be successful in Him. When you take advantage of the opportunities He has given you, then you cannot fail.
Success with God may not be what you have envisioned as success. But success with God is the greatest success possible. Let go of what you think success is and seek to be complete in Christ. It may hurt for a while, but it will pay off greatly in the end. Proverbs tells us that our steps our directed by the Lord and that we cannot understand our own way (20:24). Walk where He leads you and be blessed!
