“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” — Joshua 1:8

Who Wants to be Successful?

There is something inside of every one of us that wants to know we are successful at something. In school, sports, business or ministry, we desire to know we have succeeded in our endeavor. Have we considered the “why” in what we have attempted to accomplish?

God’s Word makes it simple if we truly desire to have an eternal impact in our own lives and in the lives of others. His Word carries the truth and the means by which we can make an eternal impact. If we take the time to learn His Word and apply it to our lives, we will experience the success He promised.

Joshua was given the mantle to lead the Israelites into the Promised Land, having taken it from Moses, and the Lord told him that if he wanted to have success, it would be directly attached to following His Word.

How successful do you desire to be? What do you want to succeed at? God has laid the plan out as plain and simple as He can. Follow His Word and you will succeed.
