Read Dr. David Jeremiah Daily Devotional for today June 14 2023: Glad Grads.
SCRIPTURE: For you will be successful if you carefully obey the decrees and regulations that the Lord gave to Israel through Moses. Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid or lose heart!-1 Chronicles 22:13, NLT
David Balogun recently graduated from high school—at age nine! He’s a young prodigy who’s also working on his black belt in karate. David has already finished a semester in college, and his goal is to become an astrophysicist who studies black holes and supernovas.1 At about the same time in another school, Pearl Neumann received her high school diploma—at age one hundred.2
Whether young or old, we have dreams, plans, and goals. We feel exuberance when they come true, and we’re often discouraged when they don’t.
Give all your dreams, plans, and goals to God. Ask Him to guide you. Be sensitive to His leadership in your life, and He will give you the best kind of success—that of fulfilling His perfect will for you. Worldly success can change people for the worse. Godly success brings rest to the heart.
Success is the continuing achievement of becoming the person God wants you to be.
