Hebrews 3:12-13 – “See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.”
My teacher, a man named Jim Rohn used to talk about opening a combination lock as a comparison to life and success. You enter a number, then another and another until hopefully, it opens. We often times don’t know how many numbers it will take to open the lock and we usually are unsure whether the combination we possess is correct or not.
One of the “numbers” that unlocks success in life for us (not only monetary success but in all aspects of life), is to remain close to the living God. Another, according to the text is to “encourage one another daily”. But have you ever seen a 2 number lock? No.
You will need to enter more numbers to make your lock open. And they are unique to you. It wouldn’t be much use if all the combination locks had the same code to open them.
When you start out with the first two numbers, your chances of opening the lock are high. God, who is faithful and just will, in time, help you unlock your dreams. However, if you try to gain success without the first two numbers, your chances are slim, at best. I encourage you to ask God today for the right combination so that your life is the success He planned for it to be.
