Effortless success? No such a thing

Then the peoples around them set out to discourage the people of Judah and make them afraid to go on building. They bribed officials to work against them and frustrate their plans during the entire reign of Cyrus king of Persia and down to the reign of Darius king of Persia. Ezra 4

You would have through this should be a piece of cake. The proclamation was made by the King. Resources were released to the Jews with a written decree to enhance the rebuilding of the temple. However opposition arose from all around them. This delayed the completion of the work. The original temple took 7 years to build; the rebuilding was reported to have taken 46.

Of course there are many possible reasons why the rebuilding took so long, Israel wasn’t a sovereign nation at the time, economy wasn’t as buoyant as it used to be and all around Judah were a host of saboteurs. In light off all these it was a miracle the temple got built at all.

Perhaps the Israelites expected things to be easy. In the words of Jim Rohn, “Remember, all good things are located upstream from us. The passing of time takes us adrift, and drifting only brings us the negative, the disappointment, and the failure”. You must take control and swim against the current sometimes, the chances of a ship drifting into the right harbour is as good as nil. There is no such thing as effortless success.

Oppositions don’t only emanate from outside, sometimes we are our own worst enemy. This we do through bad habits, wrong relationships and lack of focus. The goal is not only to do things right, we must also constantly do the right things.

As you persevere, I see your strength renewed and the favour of God lavished on you in Jesus’ name. You will accomplish great things, you shall fulfil destiny.

Being a successful person takes a lot of effort achieve it. It is not just a fruit of a tree that you wait before it falls down and eat it. Success means you have to do every single time to work hard, to chase your dreams no matter what. Success is a gradual process, you will experience trials, mistakes, disappointments, etc., but you have to remain patient at times like this. God has plans for us, He just allows bad things to happen to make us strong and patient. God bless you in posting a verse like this, I hope many people who read this got blessed.
