Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
The best thing about learning the rightly divided Word from The Way International has been knowing God’s vision for my life. I was born and grew up in mainland China. My nation is a male-dominated country, and there it is widely accepted that boys are considered more precious than girls. I am thankful to my parents for raising me to not limit myself by accepting this belief. I was brought up to believe that as long as I work hard and stay focused, I can be just as successful as boys. My parents had a vision of success for my life.
Fourteen years ago, I was introduced to The Way International, and for the first time I was shown the rightly divided Word. I was interested to know what God said about “success.”
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
I learned that success depends on carrying out the conditions of the rightly divided Word as Joshua 1:8 states, not just on hard work as my parents taught me.
Recently, my understanding of godly success has been redefined. I now understand that success is not just about me, but about sharing my knowledge and what I know of the Word with others and seeing others succeed in life. I met a woman at a conference and developed a good friendship with her. This woman shared with me about a certain mental bondage that has imprisoned her for ten years. She had to sell her father’s business when she was twenty-six years old because she was too young to be able to manage it when her father passed away. For ten years she had been trying to prove that she is not a loser in life. I shared with her Psalms 103:11-13, and this has helped her to envision herself being released from guilt and condemnation.
It is a great joy to not only see God’s vision for my own life but also to be able to share God’s vision with other people by giving them the rightly divided Word, enabling them to succeed in life!
