    The world’s definition of success differs greatly from God’s. Take the role of a pastor, for example—it would be easy to accept accolades for church growth, as many people equate high attendance numbers with a minister’s effectiveness. But the Lord desires that we obey Him with humility. Whether we draw a crowd or not, success is measured by obedience.

    This looks different for each believer. Some have very visible jobs, so their efforts are public and obvious. Others serve in quiet, less noticeable ways.

    The gifts God bestows upon His followers are tailored to each one’s ordained assignments. The Holy Spirit reveals our calling, and we’re to give our best effort. Of course, no matter what the task may be, the result will be worthless unless the Father breathes life into it.

     In other words, we are entrusted with God-appointed work. He assigns the duty, provides the skills, and causes growth. The Lord deserves all of the glory. We are designed to achieve His plan.

    As mere vessels that God uses, we should be thankful for anything He accomplishes through us. And by giving Him all the credit, we need never feel defeated with disappointment. Rather, in spite of how things may appear, we trust Him to achieve His good purpose.

    Honor is misplaced unless it goes directly to the One who creates, sanctifies, and sustains. God created you for specific tasks to further His kingdom. He wants to use your life—and will allow you to watch His powerful hand at work. Listen for His leading, and praise Him for all He accomplishes.
