“14 In everything he did he had great success, because the Lord was with him. 28 When Saul realized that the Lord was with David and that his daughter Michal loved David, 29 Saul became still more afraid of him, and he remained his enemy the rest of his days.” -1 Samuel 18:14, 28-29
If God is for us who can be against us? Because truly success comes after God. If we we’re like David, then, there’s no problem for us. All we need to do is to celebrate and rejoice in every battle we’ll win ’cause we know that God is with us and He will surely give the victory for us. But in the position of King Saul, He’s the king yet David reign more than him. How are we going to responds? Saul got afraid, angry and jealous to David, are we gonna do the same?
Learn to celebrate and rejoice with our own success, and let us also learn to celebrate and rejoice with other’s success. Let’s not own God alone, he is with me, he is with you and he is also with others. Success is not only for you and me, it is for everyone, because everyone deserve success for it it comes from God. Let’s learn to rejoice each and everyone’s success.
Lord, forgive me for sometimes I compare myself to the success of others. Thank you for I’ve learned that success is not only for me but for others, for everyone, I should rejoice with them no matter what. Thank you Lord. In Jesus name. Amen!
“Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.” -Romans 12:15
