In Psalm 18, there is one verse that says it all: "As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him" (v. 30, NKJV). To walk through this life with God's success, we must walk in His ways, live by His Word and trust in Him.
A successful person in God's view is one who walks daily in God's Spirit and obeys His Word. The only work we do on this earth that will remain eternally are those things done not by our own self-effort but by the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the grace of God.
The key to walking daily in the Spirit is to trust God with all of our hearts and lean not on our own understanding (Prov. 3:5-6). As we trust God with all of our hearts, He will prove His Word to be true in this life.
Every day we trust what we are hearing from the Lord through His Word and through the promptings of the Holy Spirit. When we act in faith upon His Word and His guidance, God will work through us both to will and to do of His good pleasure (Phil. 2:13). We believe and trust, and He accomplishes His will through our lives.
The perfect illustration of this was an experience Arthur Burt had when he was on a bus in England. Arthur is an evangelist from Wales, and God uses him mightily even now when he is in his 90s.
He shares a story about riding a bus when it was pouring down rain outside. Suddenly he heard the following instruction: "Get off the bus at the next stop."
