You’ve had multiple successes. Then you experience a big failure. Do you think your future is now diminished? Do you think God has changed His mind about you? Our ministry founder shares her story of success and failure and why your future is not bleak but INCREASED in Christ Jesus! Read “Your Future Is Increased in Christ.”
Genesis 24:42-“So today when I came to the spring, I prayed this prayer: ‘O Lord God of my master, Abraham, please give me success on this mission’.” (New Living Translation)
Success, a.k.a. the accomplishment of one’s goals, is a feature of life we all have prayed about. However, when we pray for success, why is the residue of guilt prevalent within our minds? For Eliezer, servant of Abraham wanted to make his master proud by carrying out his wishes to find a wife for Isaac, (Abraham’s son.) Therefore, he solicited the help of God to complete the mission. What have we learned? Well, we see that Eliezer’s motives were kind. We see that his motives were rooted in faith. We see that his want of success was not purely for gain, but for the happiness of others. Thus, what goals do you have for your life? Is it spiritually driven, or is it fueled by the gas of selfishness to keep the motor running? Hence, reach high toward your aspirations and God will bless them when the motives align with His will.
