What Drives You? Faith or Personal Ambition

 

“Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want. It is the belief that God will do what is right.” ― Max Lucado

Give GOD first place. When you allow GOD to direct your life… and then apply the necessary FAITH to it, to allow GOD to have control, your success, your happiness and your future will be secure. However, In LIFE, there are many drivers… and many vehicles you can choose from to drive your life. So, I ask…. “What drives you?” Is it ambition, or the pursuit of:

Owning a multi-million dollar company

Fame and notoriety

A successful career

A mansion on a hill

Great wealth

A lavish lifestyle

GOD’s will and direction over your life?

Certainly, there is nothing wrong with having nice things. Yet, there is a time and place for everything. Some people will almost drive themselves insane just to own such cars as: the Lamborghini, the Rolls Royce, the Aston Martin, the Porsche 918 Spyder, the Maybach Landaulet or the Maserati. But all you really need to take you through life each day, is a ride on the Chariots of Faith. That’s the real “Lap of luxury.”

There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” – Proverbs 16:25.

You can choose anything to pursue with all your heart… but those choices only bring temporary gratification. Choose GOD… and choose FAITH, and you automatically choose LIFE and Happiness – ETERNALLY.

Whenever life does not go the way you want it to go, it’s so easy for us to try and take the wheel from GOD…, and try to force Him to do things our way. However, that never works. Actually, it ends up causing more trouble than it’s worth. Therefore, it would be better to have Faith… and trust GOD’s process, and the way He directs our lives. GOD knows what to do… and where to go. He does it best.
