Listen: You're not going to make it to the heights that are fully out there and available for you without God.
Everybody has friends when it's sunny outside. You want some friends? Hit the lotto. You want to get rid of those friends? Go ask for some help. Man, they scatter like roaches when the lights come on.
Let me tell you why you’re doing it without God and having some measure of success: It's because of God’s grace and mercy on us. He's trying to keep us whole in spite of ourselves for the real mission that he has for us.
The only reason you have do what you have do is because you didn’t do what you were supposed to.
God didn’t create you to be a dope dealer or no such thing or anything even close to that.
There’s a cost and a consequence and a penalty for everything we do that’s outside of the will of God.
You have to stop looking at the “What you ain’t got" column and start focusing on the “What you do have" column.
The test is: Are you grateful for where you are right now?
If so, God can give you more and you can move forward.
