Don't Pray These Prayers in 2023 – Seasoned with Salt
You do not know what you need to get where you’re going
Are you looking for success or notoriety? Are you wrestling with ways to become more ambitious in your life, profession, and ministry? In this episode, I discuss the dangers of being opportunistic and encourage listeners to trust God for their success.
Release yourself from needing validation or being positioned. You’re going to get some things because of who you are NOT attached to.
Let me say that in another way: You’re going to get some things because of who you serve, not who you follow. When I ask God to lead me, I’m surrendering my own plan to his plan.
- Managed by their emotion
- Responsive a false sense of success
- Mistake ambition to be competition
- In competition with people who aren’t in competition with them
- Pursue the wrong capital
- See the criticism of others as hating.
- See people as disposable
- Run through friends and confident a because they’re untrustworthy
SO WE NEED TO DETACH OURSELVES FROM WESTERN FRAMEWORKS, Eurocentric frameworks that teach us to rely on systems and power structures for advancement.
The believer’s strategy for success.
Proverbs 16:3 Commit your works to the LORD, And your plans will be established.
Let God be the binding factor in your construction.
Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
Don’t take God’s credit.
