(1 Pet 5:6 NKJV) Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,
Giving God our life and letting Him do with it as He desires is a way of saying to Him that we surrender.
The world thinks that living means you must have your own goals and go after them on your own and make it happen on your own, and then you are considered successful, on your own. We can then say, yay to ME! I did it, and look at it all and boast in it!!
But what God wants for us is that we humble ourselves before Him and let Him guide us and lead us into a life of VICTORY, giving Him all the Glory! Allowing Him to take us to places and areas we never would dream of going.
Don't struggle today to get to a place that you feel is considered successful, missing out on fun with family and friends, miserable and tired from working so hard, and not enjoying life itself. Rest in knowing that as we humble ourselves, He will exalt us in due time.
