God’s secret for success

November 14

Joshua 1:8 – 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. (NKJV).

Joshua 1:8 – Study this Book of the Law continually. Meditate on it day and night so you may be sure to obey all that is written in it. Only then will you succeed.

It is a known fact that everyone has something they want to succeed at. The good news is that God wants us to succeed in life and in our relationship with him. I am convinced that if we succeed in our walk with God, we will success in our life’s goals. True lasting success comes only from God. God is the author of true success.

In above scripture, God himself instructed Joshua on how he would succeed. I outline them as follow:-

  • Receive and reverence God’s word before you embark on your project
  • Speak the word of God that you received over your goals
  • Ponder on God’ consistently to develop inner strength and momentum
  • Follow through with any instruction that God lays in your heart.
  • Go for your goal, you are now unstoppable because God is with you.

Personal declaration for the day
I will seek God before I take any step, I will follow his instruction and I will succeed in my pursuit.
