The true measure of success is in eternity. We can’t accurately calculate the success of our actions and pursuits because we won’t live forever. Every promise won’t be fulfilled in our lifetime. Hebrews 12:39 says, “All these people earned a good reputation because of their faith, yet none of them received all that God had promised.” That verse comes right after the famous Hall of Faith in Hebrews 11 that outlines the stories of men and women in the Bible who walked by faith. It teaches me that my motivation should be pleasing God, not receiving a specific reward or outcome.

I found a note I’d written a few years ago around July 2021 that says that we won’t see everything that we are believing God for come to pass, and that’s ok. So I guess this is something that keeps coming up for me. Our hope is in Jesus, and our faith challenge is trusting God to fulfill His promises in His own time.
