You Are Successful When Obedient

“Then Jesus explained: “My nourishment comes from doing the will of God, who sent me, and from finishing his work” John 4:34, Berean Study Bible.

What does success look like to you? Think about that question for a moment.

Understand real success is not huge profits, large turnouts, a hundred likes, or fame. Success is not luxurious houses, fancy cars, or expensive trips. Some people have the appearance of success, but wonder why they are still unhappy. It is because real success comes from 1) surrendering our lives to the Lord, and 2) obeying Him.

My sister, you are successful when you are obedient to the Lord. I’m going to say that again. You are successful when you are obedient to the Lord.

Sometimes God will tell you to leave the Fortune 500 company with the six-figure salary to follow Him and step into your calling. If you do, you are successful. Sometimes God will have you say something that will not be applauded but bring ridicule and attacks. If you do speak, you are successful. When God does this, He’s teaching you what real success is—surrender and obedience.

Prayer: Thank you, Father, for renewing my mind and transforming my life. I want to be what you consider successful, so help me be obedient to you. Help me, Lord, to obey and leave the results to you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read John 6:38; Psalms 40:8)

    1. All to Jesus I surrender with obedience. This is so encouraging to me knowing that true success results in our submission and being obedient to God. Only if the rich man obeyed Jesus command when he was told to go sell all and give to the poor. He missed the mark on experiencing the true meaning of success. As I move forward in the year of 2020 I speak great success in my life as I daily walk in submission and obedience to God. Thank you Holy Spirit for this awesome profound devotion💞

  3. This is exactly what Holy Spirit is speaking to me the last few days! Joshua 1:6-8 is clear instruction that obedience to God’s commands is the key to success. 1 John restates that over and over. Loving our Father and obeying Him is the road of success, not to success but of success.

  4. Today is the last day of a 3 month study of Nehemiah and Ezra. What came out is that they had a heart for God, a purpose and desire for His Word and His Will, and turning the people’s hearts back to God. Full surrender and obedience to God, were their tools to success. And they accomplished alot through prayer and fasting.
    “The success attending Nehemiah’s efforts shows what prayer, faith, and wise, energetic action will accomplish…”
    “…Prompt and decisive action at the right time will gain glorious triumphs, while delay and neglect result in failure and dishonor to God.”
    Steps to Christ. P93-104

    These men were successful in God’s work because of full surrender to God’s will and they were found in constant prayer. Their unwavering obedience to God even against fierce opposition (even from within their own camp) to their work of rebuilding the wall, proved to make them successful in finishing the wall and leading the Iraelites back to God.
    The world tends to see success through the material things and the ways of the world, thanks Sis Kesha for the reminder that true success is the way God views it!!
    When we surrender and obey Him we are successes in and for His kingdom!!
