Every New Year, we make new plans. It's a time of renewal, starting over, or starting something for the first time. We have so many goals for ourselves. Sometimes we ask ourselves, "Can I do this?" My answer is, "Yes, if God directs your goals, yes, you can." God never gives us a goal he doesn't allow us to accomplish.
Each one of us will experience success differently. We may not know when or how our success will occur, but God's providence happens to each of us. God knows the plans that he has for you, and he is the one that will bring your success to fruition. Some of you will do great things this year, some next year, and so on. But there is a truth to your situation you WILL be successful. Your success will happen not because of your strength, knowledge, following, or other things in your life but because you love God, and he loves you. If God is leading you, he will give you success.
Knowing that God is directing your success doesn't mean that you grow passively. It also doesn't mean that you won't have struggles. The best thing you can do is to give your goals everything you've got. Still, be careful of self-reliance. Be cautious of the mindset that your success is all because of YOU. Success is a gift from GOD. If you are blessed to succeed, know that God has done it.
Because we can trust God with confidence, the surety of our success is fantastic news. It means that you don't have to worry about whether your knowledge is enough, if your following is enough, if you speak elegantly enough, etc., God gives you favor and alignment. He aligns the things in your path that will help you succeed. These include people, finances, and opportunities. He will cause you to be in the right places at the right times and more.
In 2023 let your mantra be "I trust God." In him alone is where we put our faith. In him alone is where we put our trust. In him alone, we place our dreams. We believe God to bring about a promising future. In him alone, we will succeed.
Ecclesiastes 3:13 says, "And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God."
Let us enjoy the gift of success that will come as God brings it about. Believe that 2023 is going to be an incredible and prosperous year. Let your spirit and heart be blessed as you trust God and move forward.
Let's dive in!
Happy New Year!
