Success is often looked or defined as the attainment of certain things. There are several opinionated definitions of this one word as well. Take for instance the image used in this post. It appears to be a cup of coffee with steam rising from the top. Before steam could rise, there had to first be a substance intensified by heat and thus cause it to steam and rise. The warmer parts of the substance are not quite as dense and consequently rise or evaporate. Consider this, metaphorically, the coffee cup represent anyone who is infused with ambitions, desire, wants, goals. The moment we begin to operate, search or seek to accomplish those particular inner ambitions, it gives off a sense of accomplishment as we endeavor to obtain the thing we seek for. Once its obtained or achieved, the steam that rises from our cup is not condensation or evaporation, but the fragrance of success.Everyone has different things they are seeking to fulfill. As we walk in our purpose with the right connection, success becomes a fragrance that saturates our being. We no longer seek to be successful, but rather it has become us. The key to this fragrant bearing essence is the right connection to the right connector. If we are light bearers, our cord must remain plugged into the current, connection or socket that gives its light to shine through us. If you unplug a lamp from the wall, the light cease to be. As long as we stay connected to the source from which ALL things cometh, our illumination will broadcast as our fragrance is smelled by others. Our goal or desire must first be toward the things of GOD. As we put him first in our life, every other things come in its due season.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Pslam 23 5-6
5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven
If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
