Apart from Me you can do nothing. John 15:5
Success is not achieved easily. But it is not the way those in the world think or how they seek it. Many achievements are obtained without upholding principles because they were not attained the right way, but by crushing, bribing, mistreating or doing countless improper things just for merely winning.
Real success is the one that comes from a lot of effort, dedication, devotion, discipline and commitment. We need to develop all this every day and not wane, but cling on to the principles of the Word. Let us be certain that, if we remain connected with God, success is guaranteed.
It is necessary to know that alone we cannot achieve it. If so, we would steal the glory from God, which is impossible. For every goal that we reach, it has been and will be through Him. Therein lies being a successful person.
Apart from Him we can do nothing, says his Word. Being with God assures us that what we attain will not fill us with pride or vainglory, but it will keep our hearts from everything that wants to rise for Him not to be exalted, and make us believe that we do not need Him; for we cannot do it alone.
