Do your best
1 Peter 5:6-7 – So be content with who you are, and don’t put on airs. God’s strong hand is on you; he’ll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you.
Do your best and God will do the rest. I truly believe that God entrusts each of us with responsibility – whether it’s to our friends, family, finances, careers, dreams or passions. Whatever it is, he plants a seed in our hearts along with a vision. It’s our responsibility to follow God’s calling, and water that seed.
It’s our responsibility to be responsible with what God has given to us. When we live responsible, true to who we are and who God has called us to be, he’ll promote us at the right time. He’ll place the right blessings in our way. He’ll open the right doors and close the wrong doors. He’ll lead us down the right pathways, protecting us from the ones that lead to destruction.
All we need to do is understand and be content with who we have been made to be. We need to know and believe we are made in His image and that His powerful, strong hand is on us. His promotions and His blessings are all that we need. We can live freely and lightly because we are His.
