Wednesday – My Success Defines Me

Read: Proverbs 16:18; John 15:5; James 1:17
SOAP: John 15:5

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.- John 15:5


Multitudes have written on the secret to success.  Overnight success stories capture the hearts of nations. Reality television capitalizes on this fascination.  When we reach a milestone we have worked toward, it is easy to revel in the accomplishment.  It is no wonder that success can be addictive. But we must remember that achievements do not define us.

Whenever we reach a milestone in our lives, we must remember Who brought us where we are.  Jesus is the source of our ability.  It is through Him that we can do .

Father God, thank You for how You have blessed me. Help me to always keep my eyes on You, and remember that anything good in my life, any success that I may achieve, is all because of You. Help me to live my life for Your glory and not mine.
