"This scriptural game plan is completely out of sync with today's promote-yourself propaganda. But when God is in charge, both the timing and the extent of whatever success He may have in mind for you will be surprising. This does not mean there is no place for planning or goal-setting or diligence; it just means we refuse to make success our private shrine. When God is in it, we're surprised at it rather than smug about it."
Read Three Realms of True Success, by Charles Swindoll, Insight for Living, at One Place.
You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.
1 Peter 5:5
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time,
1 Peter 5:6
casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7
