Use the Bible for for Your Success

Almost everyone in this world wants to be successful, and by the world system, many appear to be. But, according to God’s Word, success is referred to as “good success” (Joshua 1:8 amp). It is God’s will that the believer come in to good success and not just success. Here is the passage where God lays out the recipe, or plan to Joshua to have good success. It is wise council for our soul.

Scripture. Now it happened after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, that the Lord spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ servant (attendant), saying, 2“Moses My servant is dead; now therefore  arise. (The Hebrew verb “arise” is an instruction to get ready to fulfill a command, somewhat similar to the military command “attention.”) [to take his place], cross over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land which I am giving to them,  3 I have given you every place on which the sole of your foot treads, just as I promised to Moses.  4 From the wilderness [of Arabia in the south] and this Lebanon [in the north], even as far as the great river, the river Euphrates [in the east], all the land of the Hittites.Hittites (Canaan), and as far as the Great [Mediterranean] Sea toward the west shall be your territory. (These Hittites are believed to be the descendants of Heth, a son of Canaan who was the youngest son of Ham. Canaan was cursed to a life of servitude by his grandfather Noah because of Ham’s act of disrespect for Noah. Gen 9:22-27.). 5 No man will [be able to] stand before you [to oppose you] as long as you live. Just as I was [present] with Moses, so will I be with you; I will not fail you or abandon you. 6 Be strong and confident and courageous, for you will give this people as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers (ancestors) to give them. 7 Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do [everything] in accordance with the entire law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may prosper and be successful wherever you go. 8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall read [and meditate on] it day and night, so that you may be careful to do [everything] in accordance with all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will be successful.

There are many paths to take in. this. world. Use the Bible path, do. not turn left or right.

God’s formula leading to Joshua and his peoples success is clearly outlined in the Bible scripture above. Every one of us wants the taste of success, and many of us live our whole lives chasing success as the world presents it. Success, the world’s way, is packaged nicely on the outside. The trimmings and bows on a package may make it look enticing, but the contents may not match up to that which is on the outside. In the past, I myself not feeling successful have asked God, “is this all God?” I had forgotten that I was to look to God for my success and not the worlds. Thankfully, God reminds us that it his him we need to look to not the world for our success.

And, too many times we continue to base our future on empty promises made by men who hold a position in society. I want to encourage you to take God at his Word, because his Word tells us that everything will pass away but not one dot from his Word will pass away, and this, my friends, is a promise beyond promises (Matthew 24:35 amp ). And in

We are promised to be blessed (prosper, favored) by following the principles of the Bible. Read it and activate it in your life.

Scripture. But his delight is in the law of the Lord,And on His law [His precepts and teachings] he [habitually] meditates day and night .3And he will be like a tree firmly planted [and fed] by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season; Its leaf does not wither; (Amp. Psalms 1:2-3)


After God lays out the plan and equips us with the promise, he will most definitely give us the instructions to make that plan a success. The key to possessing our promise is really remaining confident in his ability to bring it to pass, as opposed to our own abilities. In order to remain confident in God’s abilities to bring the promises to pass, we have to focus, ponder, think about, and speak the promises. This principle was laid down from very early on in God’s Word and it has not changed. It is we who are changing because of the inability to maintain consistency in right believing.

Unfortunately for many, somehow man’s opinions and thoughts and strategies seem to take the forefront and God’s Word and promises become the last resort in the backup plan. Sometimes, unless we exhaust all our resources and truly come to the end of ourselves, we will not truly be able to embrace God and his Word as the priority in our lives. My friends, I want to encourage you to take God’s instruction first in your life, and I assure you that the results of good success will most definitely manifest!

Meditation
Are you interested more in worldly success or God’s plan for your life? Tell your Heavenly Father what success you want in life and then ask him if that is his plan for your life? See if he reveals an answer to you by sitting quietly or meditating on the question throughout the day.

Out loud Prayer: Father, I pray I will experience good success because I will follow the God-pattern as you gave to Joshua and his people for good success. In Jesus Name, Amen.
