Psalm 1:1-3


Everyone wants to be successful. Winston Churchill, who led Great Britain to victory in WWII, said of success, “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”

1. How do you define success?

Success happens because of discipline, drive, and consistency. In addition, it’s important to recognize that success is not a constant state. There will inevitably be times when we don’t emerge victorious in every endeavor we undertake.

Those are teachable moments where we can look at what went wrong or what we can do better to improve ourselves. We learn from our failures, which often leads to more success.

Today’s culture defines success as having a massive following on social media, whatever morals you want, and being rich.

God’s definition of success, however, is much different.

He defines success as living a life that emulates Christ’s teachings. Joshua 1:8 says, “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”

Christ provides every answer that we need for success. It is a matter of us listening to what The Lord tells us to do. We can all be stubborn in certain situations, feeling that one of God’s answers isn’t convenient or makes us uncomfortable about the future.

But we must remember that He is the Almighty and knows so much better than we ever could. That when we trust what He says, we will see the blessings as a result. And sometimes, those blessings aren’t tangible, but we can feel them in the deepest recesses of our souls.
