Romans 5:1-5 "Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: by whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."
1 Peter 5:10 "But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you."
Being established in righteousness is key in our pathway to God. In order to access the Holy Spirit we must first be established in righteousness. Knowing that tribulations only strengthen our soul gives us the reassurance that God will overcome in the end. By facing tribulations we build patience and endurance to run the race by which we have been called. Therefore, we do not get discouraged but instead are reassured of God's love for us.
By living a life full of confidence and discernment we know that we may obtain success in life. For we may even begin to understand the meaning of the phrase "success from failure." For if we do not attempt to attain success how may we ever know the meaning of success? It is our job to seek out our calling by which to build upon. This is where we understand true success from righteousness. Our works towards God will be justified by pursuing what we love to do. For we are all blessed with different gifts of knowledge.
