The Success from Growth: Winning in Life

Activate: Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Pro 3:3-4

Elevate: Everyone loves to win. This is what drives us to work hard and make the sacrifices necessary to be competitive. I’m forever grateful for the wins I’ve experienced. These moments are etched in my mind as I recall the thrill of standing victorious. Of course it didn’t come easy, but as my coach would tell me “don’t just hear me, but listen and do what I said.” While I hated when he said this, I soon understood it was true.

Listening and doing will always put you in a position to have success. God wants us to win here on earth. He has given us everything we need to win. He has given us grace, mercy, and instruction. His spirit encourages us when we are weak and convicts us when we’re prideful. His Son was given as an act of love to save us from a life of torment and destruction. He knows how to win if we will just listen and do what He says.

Winning in life happens as we lose our life and submit to his leading. I believe your greatest victories are ahead of you and the favor of God will overshadow you as you listen and do all that He has asked you to do. True success is hearing our Lord say, “well done good and faithful servant.”

Cultivate: Make a commitment to win as you actively listening to the Lord and do immediately what He says. List three things God has been speaking to you about do them today.
