"Don't panic. I'm with you. There's no need to fear for I'm your God. I'll give you strength. I'll help you. I'll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you." Isaiah 41:10 MSG
For many years in my career in Corporate America, my focus was about climbing the corporate ladder to success. Even as a pastor's wife, God was not first priority in my life.
As a Christian, we are given opportunities each day for the Kingdom of God. God cares about every detail of our lives and He will always be with us no matter what bend in the road of life we are dealing with. When I need to make choices I am thankful my God is by my side. When fear entangles my heart, Jesus is there to provide comfort and peace. He cares and love us so much. He not only cares but He wants to help us.
What is success? To the world it is money, power and materialistic things. To God it is obedience, commitment, discipline and putting God first above all other things in our lives. Success in God's eyes is not the same to the world.
I am so thankful that I crave success in God's eyes today. That goal has not always been my heart. The things of this world crowded my vision for a long time.
Lean on God. Success in Jesus is real stuff. It is eternal. Seek God's face and permit Him to minister to your heart and soul today. Reach out to Him. His Word and promises are always true.
