God has success on His mind when thinking about us. However, He doesn’t want our success to be predicated on compromise.

When we do things that dishonor God to network with more influential people, that’s compromise. When we do deceitful things to increase our finances, especially during tax season, that’s compromise. When we choose to pay a bill instead of giving to God, that’s compromise.

We don’t need to do anything outside of the will of God to get ahead in life. God promised that HE will bless us and HE will make our names great. If we believe this promise and trust in His Word,  He will make us successful without compromising our beliefs, morals, or His Word.

Daniel 3:15 Now when you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, if you are ready to fall down and worship the image I made, very good. But if you do not worship it, you will be thrown immediately into a blazing furnace. Then what god will be able to rescue you from my hand?” 16 Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to him, “King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. 18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”
