What is your role in God’s success plan for your life? Meditate on the Word day and night, speak the Word of God, obey the Word of God. Then follow the instructions of the Word. I hear you, we have grace [inside thought “So I can keep on sinning and living how I want to”]. Paul says in Romans 6:1-2 (KJV)
“What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” Jesus died to give us power over sin – not for us to live defeated sinful lives.
Also, the enemy has set up all kinds of systems in the world to keep us distracted and busy so that we have conformed to this world. We literally believe that we’re doing something by working like Hebrew slaves and ignoring God’s instructions to study His Word. We must hide His Word in our hearts so that we may not sin against God. We must speak His Word aloud but we have to know it to speak it. How often do we study? What are we studying? Do we have a systematic study plan? The goal of studying is always about developing a relationship with Jesus Christ; becoming more intimate with Him. A part of our success plan is to study God’s Word.
The fame (in the form of thumbs up) we get by taking off our clothes, showing our bodies, posting bizarre things, posting the most radical things to get attention will not last long. In addition we will suffer the consequences for our sin. Please adhere to God’s standards for success and not the world’s.
Joshua 1:8 “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.”
