“The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord.” – Proverbs 21:31
“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.” – Psalm 127:1
It is not wrong to seek success in your ventures. It is wrong to not acknowledge that success can only come from the sovereign God who rules the universe. James 4:13-16 goes as far as to tell us that not only is it wrong to refuse to acknowledge the sovereignty of God over the plans of your life, it is arrogant and sinful. So with regards to your plans, dreams, desires, ventures, and desires, remember to ask for their success from the one person that can actually provide it. If the Lord is with you, you will not fail. If He is against you, you will never succeed. But always remember: never pursue your own success at the expense of His good pleasure and glory: “Thy will be done.” Always ask the Lord to check your heart before giving you what you think that you want (James 4:3).
