"If I make a decision which honors God, He will honor me with success."
There is a common assumption regarding God’s will. It’s the belief that success is the ultimate sign of choosing correctly. It’s the belief that if you make a decision which honors God, He will honor you with success. This is a very dangerous assumption. For example, many Christians believe that if they choose the right spouse, the marriage is guaranteed to make it, or if they choose the right job, you will make money and experience tremendous success, or if they obey God by making the right faith decisions, then everything will turn out for the best. While we have a responsibility to do everything we can to make wise choices and obey God’s commands, our obedience will not guarantee immediate success. However, we are guaranteed that a day will come in which we will never regret it.
