The Road To Good Success
September 13, 2023
"This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success." Joshua 1:8
In whatever we attempt to do, we should want to be successful in our endeavors. No one wants to set out on a journey with the mindset that they are going to fail, but we start out with the thought that we will reach our goals. It is not easy striving for our goals and we will hit hurdles along the way, and some of the hurdles will be difficult to get over, but because we want to be successful we strive to make it over the challenges that are in front of us. Many people have written books on sure fire ways of being successful in this world, and many people have bought those books, only to discover that one person’s key to success may not work for everyone. There is however one Book that will give to us the road map to success for all of us, if we would simply follow the instructions. The Scripture reminds us that, this book of law shall not depart out of our mouth: but we should meditate on it day and night, that we may observe to do according to all that is written in it; then we will make our way prosperous, and then we shall have good success. I encourage you today to take some time to read your Bible, and not only read it, but follow the instructions that it gives you. When you follow the Word of God it will lead you to a path of success. The road to being successful and prosperous may not be easy, but if you would observe, trust, and do what the Word of God says for your life, then your way will be prosperous and you will have good success. Some people have many different roads to being successful, but you know that God has already laid a path to your success out for you, and the way to it is written in His Word. Although the road may not be easy all the time, I have made up my mind to follow The Lord, and the path that He has laid out for me witch will lead me to good success. Since I am convinced that The Lord wants me to prosper and have good success, I will continue to follow the path that He has planned for me, and continue to proclaim, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord thank you for the path that you have set before me. There are times when it is not easy, but I am remined that you are always with me, and your desire for me is good success and prosperity. Thank you Lord for all you do for me. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
