@Regran_ed from @josephprince - What really brings success? Is it working harder than all your peers, putting in the extra hours, being committed to getting ahead—at the expense of your health and relationships? That might be the case for the world. But for the child of God, there’s a better way.
There’s a story in the Bible of a man who didn’t have much to start with. His name was Obed-Edom. He lived outside Jerusalem, not even being able to afford property in the city. But something happened to Obed-Edom that made him unbelievably blessed and successful.
The ark, on its way to Jerusalem, made a stopover in his house.
In the short 3 months that it was there, the Lord lavished blessings on Obed-Edom, his whole family, and everything that belonged to him (see 2 Sam. 6:11–12). So evident were God’s blessings that word of it was brought all the way to King David in the palace!
So when King David came to take the ark to Jerusalem, Obed-Edom knew exactly what to do. He and his family packed up and followed it, eventually becoming doorkeepers for the ark (see 1 Chron. 16:37–38). Why? Because beyond the blessings, Obed-Edom caught a glimpse of the Blesser.
Beloved, when you learn to value His presence, His blessings will follow you. When you prioritize Him—setting aside time on Sundays to go to church, spending time in His presence—you will find success chasing you!
