Book of 1Samuel
Ever wondered what a truly successful life looks like? It comes down to the choices we make and the paths we take, especially the decisions that involve relationships. God placed relationships right at the top and He described it with the word ‘honor’ – His relationship with us and our relationship with Him.
“…for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me shall be lightly esteemed.” (1Samuel 2:30)
God promises to honor a life that honors Him. If we truly honor Him by choosing His ways and trusting Him to work through all our circumstances it will affect our relationship with Him and others for good. If we suffer for doing the right thing we are to rejoice for being counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the name of Christ. (Acts 5:41)
A God honored life begins with keeping God first. In His time you will begin to see the fruit of a successful life filled with His goodness.
“He raises up the poor from the dust; He lifts the needy from the ash heap to make them sit with princes and inherit a seat of honor.” (1Samuel 2:8)
Honor God and He promises to honor you with a successful life.
