Being a success is many different things to many different people and success isn't limited to the working world although it is the area that we most often relate it to. But success is needed in so many things we do as we pass through this life. We want to be a success as a student, husband or wife, a parent, an adult child with older parents, a good friend, a good sportsman in whatever endeavor we choose for fun, even a great producer of whatever we create in our hobbies. And each of these things is difficult in its own way and, just like in the working world, we need others in our lives who have the time and inclination to give us moral encouragement and support. So, the selection of a seasoned person who has experience in the area of our endeavor who we trust is very valuable to help us make the right decisions. But we really need more than that because any human is mortal and makes mistakes and sometimes they may not clearly understand what is important to us. This, in turn, can head us in the wrong direction. What should we do you in such an instance or whenever we need help?
Well, if we are believers in the Christian faith, the answer should be very clear, for the answer man in the guidance department is right inside us waiting for our call. Just open our hearts to Him, let the Holy Spirit fill us with the Spirit until it is overflowing and ask Him the question. As the most recent and third person revealed of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the One who is both God of Israel and our Christian God and Father of the Christ, He has the tools to give us the answer we need and if, when we follow His guidance, it will enhance the good things that our earthly mentor advised. With the great wisdom of God that He possesses, He can also tip us off if it's not the right thing for us and lead us down the correct path.
Think of it this way. Remember that popular slogan not too many years ago, "Thing go better with Coke?" Well, why not substitute God for Coke in that slogan and take it as your own. After all, God made us in His image and wants us to live as He asks us to. So, when we take the Holy Spirit as our counsel, He will lead us there and when we add His dimension as the ultimate mentor to our life plans, what could be better than that? Nothing, because mentoring us in all things human, He is also the one to link us to our Advocate with God, Jesus, and the connection then also can lead us to Eternity.
