One of our favorite Bible verses about success is this one we read in 1 Samuel, “In everything he did he had great success, because the Lord was with him.”
It’s such a timely reminder that our success and ability to achieve our goals must center around God. But remember, it’s one thing to pursue success for ourselves but we need a Kingdom mindset!

What the Bible Says About Success
Sometimes Christians seem to shy away from thoughts of achievement but the truth is the Lord encourages us. These Bible verses about success prove that He helps empower us to enjoy success in a variety of areas – financial, family, and other relationships, and especially in service to Him.
Let’s look at some of the principles around success we can glean from Scripture. The first thing to make note of is in John, “Whoever speaks on their own does so to gain personal glory, but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him.” In other words, it’s important to remember that in whatever realm we enjoy success in, we should always remember that we are seeking not our own glory, but the glory of God.
A foundation of service to the Lord and seeking to glorify God becomes the starting point for all our successes.
And don’t be afraid to take the time to pray through the process of setting your goals as you update your plans. As it says in Proverbs, “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.” When God is the one who establishes your plans, failure isn’t an option.
As we remain faithful to God and what He’s called us to, we know that He will empower us to continue working on His behalf. Meditate on these Bible verses about success so you can develop the right mindset!
