How to Guarantee Success in the New Year

The Lord said to Abram:

Go out from your land,

your relatives,

and your father’s house

to the land that I will show you.

I will make you into a great nation,

I will bless you,

I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.

I will bless those who bless you,

I will curse those who treat you with contempt,

and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you.

Genesis 12:1-3 (Emphasis mine)

The secret, for lack of a better word, for Abraham’s success, was moving from his will to God’s will. When the “you” comes after the “I” rather than before, we’ll guarantee our success.

If you and I want the new year to be a success, let’s:

  • Drop our agenda…join His agenda
  • Get off our path…get on His path
  • Release our ambitions…embrace His ambitions
  • Ignore my will…live His will

Are you ready for a great new year?

  1. Ron, I appreciate your posts and have been following since I Michael Hyatt posted something of yours. This one got me thinking about the mixture of God's Direction BLENDED with Man's Initiative. Thanks for the thoughts! Happy New Year from Philly!

  2. When I saw the title my first thought was, "Oh no, not another seven step plan to personal success".
    Thank you for posting something far better!
    And my best wishes and prayers for an awesome New Year!

  3. That's a great encouragement needed at this year end. God always asks us take the road less traveled; to get out of our comfort zone; to tread the narrow path. "Not my will, it's Your will Lord!" — This should be our heartbeat.
