God’s Word Points the Way to Success


JOSHUA 1:8 NKJV

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

God’s Word Points the Way to Success

It’s the same every weekend. Tens of thousands of people pack convention centers and hotel ballrooms across the country to hear self-help gurus and financial experts speak on how to be successful. Most of these events are slick and entertaining, with attendees caught up in the possibility of “realizing their potential” or “seeing their dreams become a reality.” And many of the people come away feeling motivated and helped. But how much of the advice they hear really squares with what God has said about how to succeed?

According to today’s verse, true success isn’t about making money, positive thinking or getting people to do what you want. God defines success as knowing and doing his Word. We achieve lasting glory when our sole goal- is to honor the Lord.

God’s Promise to Me
• If you study, meditate on and obey my Word, you will have success.

My Prayer to God
You have given me your Word, Lord. Thank you for revealing yourself and for showing me the right and best way to live. True success requires me to be immersed in and submitted to your truth. Give me the discipline to study, the desire to meditate on and the courage to obey the Scriptures.
