Thought to Ponder: Success!!
“Let the Lord be magnified, who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” Ps 35:27 NKJV
Question: Are you serving the Lord? Then you qualify for success! “Let the Lord be magnified, who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” Yes, God will help you when you are in need. But He also wants you to succeed so that you can begin to meet the needs of others. God told Abraham two things. First, He promised to bless him greatly. Second, He promised to make him a great blessing to others (See Ge 12:2). And it happened! Solomon writes, “Money answers everything” (Ecc 10:19 NKJV). What did he mean? Money builds schools, churches, and hospitals. It eradicates poverty and illiteracy; it finances research that cures life-threatening illnesses. But some of us are so focused on heaven’s streets of gold that we no longer see earth’s streets filled with suffering and unmet needs. Understand this: God will reward you based on your service to others. “The King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these…you did it to Me’” (Mt 25:40 NKJV). That should be your greatest motivation for wanting to succeed.
God Loves you, Be a success to day as He works through you in service to other.
