Celebrating Success

“Then Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the Lord…”

Exodus 15:1, ESV

What a day that must have been!! All they had ever known was slavery and bondage. All they had ever known was the back-breaking labor, tyranny, and the master’s whip. But God!! Then they were chased out of Egypt and “stranded” at the Red Sea. But God!!

Exodus 15:2 “The Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will praise him…”

Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”

What victories has God enabled you to enjoy? What has God empowered you to accomplish? Of course, crossing the Red Sea on dry ground is a major success. Seeing your enemy destroyed is a major success.

But, what about overcoming your fear to tell someone about Christ? What about stepping out in faith and interviewing for the job you are in need of? What about turning your eyes and not looking lustfully at someone? What about offering a gentle response instead of spite and anger when someone upsets you? All of these are major victories that God has empowered you to achieve as well!

I believe we have more to celebrate today! Instead of looking at hardships, look for opportunities to celebrate!

  1. Great post , with jobs and success being a area in my life I am pursuing its awesome to know we as christians have a upper hand with the favor of God. Were made to be creative and fearless accomplishing anything being Christ is where our strength and success comes from. Seek and find. Knock and doors will be open. God wants us to prosper. I believe His favor comes in when we give Him the credit. I’m thanking God for the job in advance that will be exceedingly and beyond what I expected financially.

  2. This is a great post! Especailly for those who struggle with knowing God is always with them no matter what the situation may be. We have the blessed knowledge that God will deliver us from it in His perfect timing so that He gets all the glory! Praise God!
