The attitude of triumph (Part 8)
Dr. Roberto Miranda
SUMMARY: The passage in Deuteronomy Chapter 8 reminds us that sometimes God takes us through deserts and difficult journeys to test us, break our pride, and prepare us for success. It is important to be careful what we ask for and to be prepared for the process that God may take us through to achieve our visions. Sometimes success can destroy us if our character and soul are not healed and adequate. Therefore, God may first do a work of sanitation in us before giving us the success we desire.
To achieve our goals in life, it is important to have a long-term perspective and be willing to put in the hard work and discipline needed. God often uses difficult situations and processes to prepare us for our goals and to teach us important lessons about trust and faith. We should focus not just on the small goal, but the larger systemic goal and aim to be a long-term, marathon runner who persists until they reach their desired outcome.
God wants us to succeed legitimately and become spiritual warriors, athletes, and marathon runners in life. It may take time, but if we are faithful to the process and exercise faith, we will yield great benefits. The great things in life often start small and require us to stick with it for the long haul. God works from the foundation and wants to train and teach us. He will be with us and lead us to our goals. We should be people of discipline, persistence, and long-term vision. Let's take the Lord's hand and leave ourselves for Him, believing in His faithfulness.

That's what we're talking about, right? And it's been many weeks now.
You may remember that we were discussing that passage from Hebrews, Chapter 12, verses 1 and 2, which has given us a series of, shall we say, points to follow on how to live a life by design, a successful life
