Network for Success

God is All Powerful

Then King David went in and sat before the LORD, and he said: “Who am I, Sovereign LORD, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? 2 Samuel 7:18

In business, it’s good to be connected. But for those of us who are building our rolodex,
we often find ourselves on a long road, striving to be associated with all the “right people”.

While knowing chairmen and CEO’s can certainly help, who we really need to know is Jesus if we want true success in our lives. It is easy to believe the illusion that comes from our own success, but in reality it’s God who is ultimately in control working in and through us for His glory. For those at the top, that precept should be humbling as it was for David, the King of Israel. And years earlier David's reliance on God serves as encouragement when he, a mere shepherd boy, faced the giant Goliath. So no matter your title or status in life, there isn’t anything that can stop you, outside of your own disbelief, when you put your trust in Jesus.

“‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Mark 9:23

Because God is all powerful, we can be confident with Jesus reigning in our hearts.
