The Necessary Attitude

Today I want to talk to you about a necessary attitude you must possess if you wish to achieve success in your life. If you study the lives of achievers and history-makers, you will find that all of them remarkably share certain attitudes that helped them reach success.

I am talking about a non-negotiable attitude is found in First Corinthians 15:58, where Paul urges us,

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord….” 15:58 could be translated:
“… Be constant, stable, enduring, and dependable—one who is always abounding in the work of the Lord….”

Thus, this word “unmoveable” portrays something that is solid, unbending, and not easily excited,
shaken, or affected; a person, building, or place that is constant, stable, enduring, and dependable.

In other words, this is not a flighty, fickle, “here-today, gone-tomorrow,” “on-again, off-again” type of person; rather, this is someone who is constant, stable, and dependable.

Anyone who wants to be great or to do great things must learn to be constant, stable, dependable, inflexible, unbending, and unyielding in the face of challenges. This is a common characteristic shared by all great achievers.

So don’t allow yourself to be inconsistent and wavering in your commitment to accomplish your God-given assignment. In this world where a lackadaisical, “who cares?” attitude predominates, people need to see what true commitment looks like!

Live with this necessary attitude: Be steadfast and immovable in the place where God has called you.
