Does God Want Us to Succeed?—4 Bible Verses Say God Does
Do you ever wonder if God wants us to succeed? In life, we want to achieve so many things, but our inability to do so make us question if God really wants people to succeed. God, indeed, wants us to succeed, but He wants us to work for it. The proof of God wants us to excel at life is mentioned in the following four bible verses:
Choose the Path Leading to Success
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers-” Psalm 1:1-3
If you spend time with people who steer you in the wrong direction, you will not find success, as they will stop you from attaining it. They will put you down each time you try to take a step forward in the right direction and you will remain where you are, unless you cease all communication with them.
Pray for Success
“O Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of your servant, and to the prayer of your servants who delight to fear your name, and give success to your servant today, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. Now I was cupbearer to the king” ~ Nehemiah 1:11
Success comes to those who strive to achieve it. If you wait for it, you will be kept waiting for years. If you chase it, you will achieve it.
Be Responsible of Your Mistakes, Success will Find You
“He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless” ~ Proverbs 2:7
You will make mistakes and hurt people’s feelings through your words and actions. If you repent for your mistakes, learn from them and take blame for your own actions, success will find you.
Be Thankful for Your Success
“In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths” ~ Proverbs 3:6
You need to thank God, people, and anyone who has helped you get where you are. Without prayers and support, success will not come to you, but will keep going further from you.
Work for success! When you do, it will surely come to you.
