The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man. Genesis 39:2 (NKJV)
How do you measure success? Some people measure success by career titles, monetary accumulation, or even the number of college degrees acquired. Many people feel like failures and that their lives have not amounted to much because they do not realize how to truly measure success. True success is having the presence of God in your life. Notice Genesis 39:2 states that it was the Lord's presence that made Joseph successful. Having God with you and in you makes you an automatic success! The Bible states that "Christ in you" is "the hope of glory" (Colossians 1:27). Also, fulfilling the purpose for which God created you to perform makes you a success. It does not matter if what you do is deemed as important in society's eyes, if you are fulfilling the purpose for which you were created, you are successful! Our lives are not our own as Believers anyway (1 Corinthians 6:19), but we were created to fulfill God's purpose for our lives. Measure your success on today by doing what God has created you to do and knowing He is already with you!
