Davidisms: Emphasize Process Over Outcome

Have you ever tried to control an outcome? Most all of us have. It’s our very nature to do so.

Unfortunately, the multitude of variables existing outside of our control means outcomes are nearly impossible to be successful.

For example, we can’t control what others do. How they perform. Accidents occur. As do unavoidable mistakes. It’s why controlling an outcome proves futile.

That’s why it’s essential to emphasize process over outcome.

How is this done? Step by step. Through our daily decisions and choices. “Choose this day whom you will serve,” (Joshua 24:15).

The psalmist asked God to keep his steps steady according to God’s promise (Psalm 119:133). Every day ordering our lives according to God’s will and ways.

And when you’re faithful with each step - every day trying to do what is right - most often the outcome will be successful.

And you will be conformed to the image of Jesus (Romans 8:29).

That’s God’s best outcome.
