Successful Living - 12

It is God's will for us to live a victorious lifestyle during our time on the earth.

Therefore, I need to fall out of agreement
with this tail attitude:

Why must others / you
have all the good breaks in life and not me!
This keeps back: those who cannot rejoice and weep with others when they're happy or sad.

Romans 12:
15 When others are happy, be happy with them.
If they are sad, share their sorrow.
16 Work happily together. Don't try to act big.
Don't try to get into the good graces of important people,
but enjoy the company of ordinary folks.
And don't think you know it all!
(The Living Bible, Tyndale House Publishers)

  I can get out of this attitude
by turning my back on envy
and asking God to help me to be genuinely glad
at the good fortune of others.
This will bring my good fortune along faster.

  I can get out of this attitude
by asking God
to take away from me this feeling that I am entitled.
I must ask Him to help me to seek Him for myself
and pursue my own relationship with Him,
and not to feel that someone else
must always do my praying for me
or achieve my results for me.

See you tomorrow, God willing,
for another meditation on God's Word!
Be blessed as you pursue Him today!

Psalm 27:4

The one thing I desire of You, Lord,
the thing I seek most of all,
is the privilege of meditating
in Your Temple,
living in Your presence
every day of my life,
delighting in Your incomparable perfections and glory.

The Point!
