Dont Chase SuccessLet It Chase You! 29 May The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
How much do you want to succeed in life? Enough to change what youre saying? Enough to change where your attention is focused? Enough to act on the Word of God even when the rest of the world is telling you it will never work? If you want it that much, the Word of God guarantees youll get your fill of success in life. Good success. Not the kind the world gives, but Gods own brand of success. Success the worlds way has a price tag of misery attached to it. But Proverbs 10:22 says God adds no sorrow to His blessings. I will warn you of this, though. Satan wont like it if you choose the way of success. Hell try to talk you out of it, and since he knows Gods success formula, he knows exactly what tactics to use. Hell pressure you to say negative things. Hell try to distract you from the Word and get your attention on anythingit doesnt matter what it is, as long as it isnt the Word. His goal is to stop your faith. He knows its the only force that can cause impossible situations to change. He also knows that it comes from the Word of God. So when he sees that Word going in your heart and hears it coming out of your mouth, he doesnt just sit there. He starts talking. Doubtful thoughts will come into your mind, thoughts that are just the opposite of what Gods Word says. But those thoughts dont become yours unless you believe them and speak them. Thats what he wants you to do, of course. If the Word says youre healed, hell say youre sick. If the Word says youre forgiven, hell say youre still guilty. If the Word says your needs are met, hell tell you theyre not. But if you wont let go of your faith, if youll keep the Word in your mouth and in your heart, you cant lose. Theres no force the devil can bring against you that will overcome the Word of God. It will make you a winner every time. So if youve been wanting good success and its been eluding you, quit wondering if you have what it takes to make itand remember instead who is with you and in you. Then turn to the Word of God and put Gods success formula to work in your life. Start talking it. Start thinking it. Start doing it. Before long, you wont be chasing success…it will be chasing you!1 Kings 20-21; Ephesians 3The blessing of the Lord makes me rich and He adds no sorrow with it. Proverbs 10:22
