Becoming successful in any walk of life takes time and consistancy.  Consistancy seems boring to some, but the fact remains that those that stay consistant in an area become the experts.  Why?  Because they learn what can go wrong and what it takes to keep a good product. 

You never become an expert until you learn what can go wrong and then you can build a strategy to put up safeguards to keep your product or service the best.

Become the best at your relationship with Jesus Christ and He will automatically give you favor in your field of expertise.  In the meantime, don't expect Jesus to promote you, work to become the best. so that there is no alternative but to expect that you are the best!

Luke 2:52  "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man."

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving."

Romans 12:11-12

"Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."
