Want to be successful?
If you’re like me, you want it to happen before 5 o’clock today. Or if you’re REALLY patient…tomorrow will be fine.
We always want to take the express elevator to the top. We want to RUSH our success. We want it NOW!
Don’t get me wrong, many times we do experience ACCELERATED favor from God. But more often than not, reaching a goal or achieving success is more of a PROCESS.
Don’t Rush God!
Maybe you’ve heard the story about the young boy who tried to HELP a butterfly escape from its cocoon by cutting it away.
Initially, it sounds like he was trying to be of assistance. Fortunately, he was stopped by his father who was able to explain the PROCESS to him.
You see, it’s the STRUGGLE of getting out of the cocoon which strengthens the butterfly’s wings and enables it to reach its full POTENTIAL and fly.
Success is a Process
Our TALENT may take us somewhere fast, but only our CHARACTER has the ability to keep us there.
We should take full advantage of the process of achieving success to DEVELOP and strengthen our character.
“But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing.” James 1:4 (AMP)
Be patient…success will come. It’s all just part of the process!
What process of events have you been through lately that has better equipped you to succeed at reaching your goals?
Encourage the rest of us!
Patience is hard….but it is so worth it if we trust in God’s timing patience is easier. Everyday prepares me for the next day to be more successful!
IF we trust is the key! We have to make the decision to have faith that God’s timing is perfect.
