Being successful with God is not easy. That may seem harsh at first glance, but is any real success easy to obtain? If it is, then is it real success? We already know that being successful with God requires hard work. Not only is there the struggle of the work you must do (through Christ), but then there is the added strain of seeing others seemingly pass by. We get off track when we look at the wrong person (anybody except Christ).
Being successful with God requires a precise focus and immense dedication! God called you into a personal relationship with Him and Him alone. What you have is unique and special. I don’t know what yours is like and you don’t know what mine. He wants you to strengthen that relationship and not worry about what is going on around you. Don’t let the actions of others hinder you from reaching your full destiny in Christ. Seek to know Him more and more…then nothing else will matter.
