|It is a blessing to be able to bless others! Here’s something I’d like for you to know and never forget: Your victory is not just for you — it’s for everyone else, too! I am reminded of how God filled Sarah’s life with joy and laughter as the promise of God through her son Issac was fulfilled! In Genesis 21:6 it states: “Sarah said, ‘God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me.’ ” As a matter of fact, I’m not sure if she knew just how many generations would hear of her faith walk and rejoice with her as a result of it.
When God gives you victory, success, and accomplishments and you receive a host of accolades, understand that your victory isn’t just for you. As much as it’s for you, it’s also for those who have sacrificed their time, energy, and talents by helping you along in your journey. You are being watched by your friends, your family, even your enemies are keeping an eye on you as you move through to victory. You’re blessed to be a blessing. This was also said of the nation of Israel, that they would be a light to the nations and a beacon to the world!
Friend, don’t forget that there are a lot more eyes that are watching you on this journey than you might realize. Max Lucado, a well-known American author and minister, teaches the principle that your test will become your testimony that you share with others. Other people are going to benefit from your success in a good way! Your test will be your testimony and your “mess” will be your message. Your God-given success will be your sermon and your miracles will be your ministry!
