How to Succeed: You Can Conquer the World!
Isaiah 41:10-11, “v10. Fear not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help you; I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness. V11. Behold, all they that were incensed against you shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive against you shall perish.”
Do not allow the devil to use discouragement as a tool to keep you from moving forward. Do not allow past failures or disappointments to keep you from being a success. In life, you have to “roll with the punches” and keep moving. When you “stay stuck”, you miss out on what life has to offer you. Sometimes family and friends will try to discourage you from reaching your full potential. One thing I state to myself every morning is that “my current circumstances do not define me.” I am not defined by my current circumstances, I am defined by what I do with my current circumstances to make my life better. I am defined by God who created me to be awesome. God does not create any “junk”, He creates “masterpieces”. God is the “potter” and we are the “clay”. If you allow the “potter” to do His job, you will come out as the “most beautiful piece of pottery” ever.
No matter what you are going through stay strong and keep your “eye on the prize”. Remember God is with you every step of the way and “He will never leave you nor forsake you.” I am here at this point in my life because God has been with me every step of the way guiding me. God has never left my side and when I wanted to give up on myself, God never allowed to me do so. During those tough times, God has grabbed me by my collar and said to me, “Get up because it is time to make a change for the better!”
No matter what you are going through, do not be discouraged because God is with you and with God you can conqueror the world!
