Stress seems to be an attached factor to daily living in this our 21st Century moment. Author, Danzae Pace said, “Stress is the trash of modern life–we all generate it, but if you don’t dispose of it properly, it will pile up and overtake your life.” Truly, stress is overtaking many lives in this present world.
There’s a saying that if we want to be successful in this globalized world, we must sweat it out. In other words, without being stressed someone cannot experience success.
I like to confidently say that success is possible without stress. And I mean God-kind of success that is called Good success. You don’t need to sweat it out before you can achieve success in your endeavours. Of course, you must be diligent and be proactive. But thinking until you are stressed you are not qualified to succeed is like a goat promising to defend a sheep in case a lion appears.
There’s a secret we need to know about success without stress which I discovered sometime ago. The secret is: Success is doing what you have been ENABLED by God to do. You don’t have to run faster than others to survive. Someone said, “There is more to life than increasing its speed.” In fact, THERE’S. You simply have to be enabled by God to succeed.
God’s enabling power is the secret of success without stress
To enable is to authorize, equip, qualify, empower and to be endued with the strength you need to succeed in what you do. And it is God who enables. He gives strength that overrides personal weakness. He makes you adequate to carry out your life assignment without stress.
Those who depend upon their personal efforts to succeed don’t go far in life. But those who operates through God’s enabling power competes at all levels in a diverse range of pursuits and leads other people in a number of unbeatable accomplishments.
We are not expected to depend on our ability, basking in the glory of what we can do on our strength; we must be constantly drawing help from the Lord. Every time we draw from God’s enabling power, the result is one of outstanding feats and failure is not an associate.
“Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion.”
Do you want to succeed in life without stress? Are you tired of running from morning till evening which produces little or no results? The race of life is not to the swift, achieving mouth opening results does not answer to outstanding skills and success is not for those who can sweat it out – The secret is operating through God’s enabling power within you.
God is willing to ENABLE you if are ready. Develop the discipline of waiting upon Him through prayer (Isaiah 40:31). Get acquainted with His word – Study, meditate, confess, believe and act on them. Refuse to engage in what your flesh is motivating you to do. Focus on doing all things that Christ alone gives you strength to do. Learn to walk, live and be led by the Holy Spirit.
God is interested in your success and does not want you stressed. He is an enabler. Through Him you are equipped, empowered and made-fit to accomplish your life purpose without being worn-out.
You will Succeed!
