Whose Definition of Success Are We Chasing?

From God’s Heart:

What if you abandoned all the world’s definitions of ‘success’ and lived only onto Me?

What if you lived your life with your focus on the ‘unseen,’ like holiness, rather than the ‘externals’ that the world would like to measure you by?

What if you lived with a focus that is BEYOND what people see and are able to measure and judge, a focus on the unseen heart and the acts of obedience that no human will ever see and be able to approve or disapprove of?

 

What if you start there in the stillness and in the quiet and dark?

Rather than measuring yourself by worldly standards, consider how you live there in the internal, in the place where I see and know what success truly is for you personally, because I know what you are called to.

 

Start there.

 

Be completely intolerant of sin and any and every thought that does not line up with My truth.

LIVE before Me and as Mine so that what I think is what matters most to you, entrusting yourself to Me, the One who judges righteously (1 Peter 2:23).

 

What if we, His people, lived out this truth day by day?

May we live with a focus on being a God-pleaser, pleasing Him Who values the “unmeasurable unseens” in our lives. Then from that place, Him living in and through us, will come effective results (fruit).

 

“For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His.” 2 Chron. 16:9

May we be whole-heartedly His.
