How You Can Experience Long-Term Spiritual Success

February 17

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
            his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
            great is your faithfulness.

>Lamentations 3:22-23

Several years ago when our church began growing in size very quickly, I was asked by a reporter, “Pastor Graham, what’s so different about this place?” I thought for a moment and told her, “There’s really one word that characterizes the people here and makes all the difference: energy.”

When people are excited and enthusiastic about something, it’s very likely going to succeed. And when that excitement is empowered and guided by the Holy Spirit of God, there’s absolutely nothing that can stop it!

But unfortunately, there are many Christians today who attempt to survive on excitement and experience alone. They go from spiritual high to spiritual high and confuse those experiences with the Holy Spirit. This causes them to completely miss out on the real work of Christ in their lives.

Don’t substitute emotion and exhilaration for the authentic work of God in your life. Walk consistently with Him daily, rather than from experience to experience. It’s that sustained energy that will set you up for long-term success in your spiritual life!
