Living in God’s will unleash “true success” in our life. Jesus’ greatest success while He lived on earth was His sacrifice which He characterized as “doing the will of His Father.” He said: “For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.” (John 6:38-40) Because Jesus chose to live in His Father’s will, all of mankind has the opportunity to know God. That’s the most pure version of “true success” any of us will ever see and it is the type of success we should strive for. However, this key to “true success” is ONLY found when we submit to living in God’s will. When we forsake the ways of the world and open our heart completely up to God, our eyes are opened to discern His will. That’s the logical progression explained in the Book of Romans: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:2) We will NOT tap into the wisdom and power of living in the success of God’s will unless we commit to continuously renew our mind in Him. We cannot renew our mind in Him if we are doing things He hates. We cannot renew our mind IN Him if we are WITHOUT Him. We must be seeking Him by spending quality time reading His Word and conversing with Him. When we seek Him, believe me—our minds and heart are changed! We begin to discern His will and it is evidenced in what we say and do. Things become revealed to us that hold no other explanation other than God’s leading. God let’s us in on His mind and gives us His direction. It is an awe-inspiring experience! When we develop the mind of Christlikeness, God can make us truly successful because then what we say and do is a reflection of HIS will. There is no greater success which we could possibly attain than the success we attain in God’s will.
