September 26 BIBLE MEDITATION: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: The one who dies with the most toys wins. Is that success? Having your dreams come true? Getting all you want? Earning enough money so that you never have to work again? May I tell you what success is? And I say this without equivocation. Success is the progressive realization of the will of God for your life. That’s what it is. It’s not how much money you have. It’s not how famous you are. It’s not how healthy you are. It’s not how many friends you have or how many toys you have acquired. Success is nothing more, nothing less, than the progressive realization of the will of God for your life.
ACTION POINT: Do you want to know God’s will? Do you want your heart’s desire to come true? Read Micah 6:8. What does God require of you? Read Psalm 37:4. What is God calling you to do?
