There’s a particular “something” that all truly blessed, successful, and significant people have…
Because of the inherent desire that’s in all of us to be blessed, successful, and significant there are many who have studied, researched, and sought to find out what exactly it is in those rare people who are truly blessed, successful, and significant. People have spent years trying to find out…and when they are done, they come back and tell us about traits, characteristics, and behaviors such as:
These all sound good…these are all important…but, where does a person get these at?
Where do these come from?
How does one acquire these so that they can gain blessings, success, and significance?
Well, I’ve got good news for you…there IS a “something” that’s deeper than all of these traits, characteristics and behaviors…there is a “something” that’s behind all of these and when a person has this “something” all of these other traits, characteristics, and behaviors automatically and naturally flow out of it.
Because you’re here reading this, you get to find out what it is…
The “something” that truly blessed, successful, and significant people have is an unshakeable belief in the goodness, nearness, friendliness, and supportiveness of the Lord to them. They are fully persuaded that God has good plans, intentions, and desires for them and they can’t wait to do something so that goodness can begin to materialize and manifest in their life.
When you are in right relationship with God through Jesus Christ and you have THIS belief resonating at the very core of who you are, THEN, vision, courage, confidence, action, etc. just naturally and automatically flow through you.
Stated differently, when you genuinely believe that the Spirit of the Living God wants to flow to and through you for good, and operate accordingly, then you will naturally and automatically exhibit the characteristics that bring about blessings, success, and significance.
King David…the killer of Goliath…the man after God’s own heart…had this. We can see it in scriptures like this one:
“I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.” Psalms 27:13
But, here’s the kicker…many people believe that God is good…but just not to them. Many people believe that God is near…to others.There are those who believe that God is friendly and supportive…of somebody else.
And with this belief, they BLOCK God’s goodness in their own lives.
You’ll hear these people complaining about the economy…about lack of opportunity…about limited resources…and they deny the power of God in their lives.
You don’t believe me?
Well, what are you going to do with God’s Word that says:
“the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.” Psalms 33:5
“the goodness of God endureth continually.” Psalms 52:1
“we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy [God’s] house” Psalms 65:4
You know what I think?
I think you’re better than the way you’ve been thinking and believing up until now. I think it’s time for you to look at the following verse in a new way:
“Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness ofGod leadeth thee to repentance?” Romans 2:4
Are you guilty of not believing that God’s goodness applies to you?
If so, I encourage you to repent…to ask the Lord to forgive you for your unbelief (Mark 9:24) and begin to REALLY believe in the goodness of God towards YOU!
Your blessings, success, and significance depends upon it.
