God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
06/01/09 God wants us to have an abundance of success in every good work at all times. Our success assures His success. Don’t misunderstand. This doesn’t mean that everything will be smooth sailing with no challenges and great circumstances. There will be storms to weather, tragedies to endure, crises to handle. The success comes when we deal with those things in a manner that glorifies Jesus Christ. Being consistent is part of it. Being transparent is another part of it. I have learned so much about God from people who are honest about how they’ve messed up, but the Lord has turned their failure into a victory for His kingdom. And that sort of success leads to greater confidence in Him and a desire for closeness with Him and seeking opportunities to serve Him.
