Today's Scripture | Proverbs 16:3

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.

When I was young, I viewed success much differently than I do today. Age and experience, highs and lows, certainly give us perspective. Our ultimate success and value in life is not found in climbing what the world calls the ladder of success. Our success is not in a job promotion, a bigger house, a better-looking car, or elite social circles.

True success is knowing God and the power of His resurrection. It’s knowing that He loves you unconditionally and that you are made acceptable in Jesus, the beloved Son of God, who died for you, to pay for your sins.

Real success is allowing God to help you be the best you can be, but never having to be better than someone else to prove that you are valuable.

A Prayer for You Today: Lord Jesus, I want to know You more and the power of Your resurrection! Thank You for loving me unconditionally. In Your name I pray, amen.
