Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him” (Isaiah 53:3).

When we consider the life of Jesus, we see how He decisively rejected the path of success. His miracles were blessings, but He warned some of the blessed not to tell anyone, so that the blessing did not turn into success. Blessing is divine; success is human. Blessing remains, success passes. Have you had success in your business life?  Have you been able to accumulate riches, have you built houses, and yet you found that your heart was still empty? That is because you had success but not blessing. Were you successful in your moral endeavors? Are you a “good person” who would not harm anyone? Then you are certainly esteemed of men, but not necessarily of God. His Word says that, “All our righteousnesses are as filthy rags.” Your righteousness will disappear like snow in the sun, but His righteousness will remain forever. Are you successful or blessed? Is your own righteousness your justification before God, or is Jesus, who shed His blood for you, your righteousness?
