Father God, as your children climb out of the pit of the world system into the marvelous light of your son Jesus Christ, we need your help to redefine success and failure.
We know what the world calls success; big homes, expensive cars and lots of money. Unfortunately, too often these “successes” come with relaxed morals and less than excellent ethics. We see it all the time on the news and even in some churches.
We have looked at others who have all the things the world calls success and tried to mimic them. That’s why so many of us find ourselves broken and ashamed of what we’ve done and what we have become. Father, forgive us!
Lord, help us to seek after your definition of success. Help us to look more and more like Jesus every day. Help us to obey your word even when we can’t figure out what you’re doing in our lives and, help us to seek after and fulfill the destiny you have planned for each of us.
Father help us replace our fear of earthly failure with the peace of being successful in you. Step by step and day by day help us to climb out of our spiritual pits so we can come into the full light of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is in the precious name of Jesus we pray, and say amen.
