In life, there is good success & bad success. Bad success is the kind of success which robs u of time with your family, friends & church, & destroys your health & relationships. With good success, on the other hand, u see prosperity in every area of your life.
God wants u 2 enjoy good success & the key 2 this lies in what God told Joshua when he took over the reins following the death of his leader Moses — “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but u shall meditate in it day & night, that u may observe 2 do according 2 all that is written in it. For then u will make your way prosperous, & then u will have good success.” Spending time in God’s Word daily will give u godly wisdom, which will make your way prosperous & give u good success.
Look at how Joshua’s life turned out in the end. When Joshua died, “they buried him within the border of his inheritance at Timnath Serah, which is in the mountains of Ephraim, on the north side of Mount Gaash”. (Joshua 24:30) Joshua had a whole mountain for his inheritance! This means that he was prosperous and successful!
It was also said that Israel served the Lord, not idols or other gods, all the days of Joshua’s life. (Joshua 24:31) This means that while Joshua was around, people were impacted for God’s glory.
And at the end of his life, a fulfilled Joshua had this 2 say, “But as for me & my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15) Having your family loving God & serving Him with u is the most important success & greatest prosperity that u can ever have.
Beloved, when God’s Word takes priority in your daily life, not only will your finances be blessed, your ministry & family life will also be blessed!
