success with no regrets :: Friday E-Devotion

I am often floored by the Christians I talk to you that are full of regrets or depressed or feel as if they failed.  We have GOT to get what God's says in our ears, hearts and minds.  That means knowing so great stuff: God loves you, God fills you, God guides and gives success....and so much more.
 
In the past week Craig Groeschel from Lifechurch has written on the idea of success .  Here are the four points that he said are huge points that will help us have less regret and grab the true understanding of success:
 
SPIRITUAL PASSION, INTEGRITY, HUMILITY, STRONG WORK ETHIC
 
Those seem to be stuff that comes with knowing who is in control.  It is God.  No me and not even the church.  It is all about seeing that people hear about and get pointed toward God.  Integrity and humility are tied to the fact that "we need God".  Don't lose that. 
 
What happens when we think we don't need God?  Answer: regrets, failure and so much more.
 
I pray that a sweet look at some old Scripture may give you some real passion to serve God and serve the people He loves...
 
Psalm 139:23-24 (nlt) --- Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.  Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
Matthew 5 (nlt) --- 5 God blesses those who are humble, for they will inherit the whole earth... 8 God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God.  9 God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God.

May God give us awesome, unstoppable passion to see people touched for our unending God!  No regrets and God given success...
