You Are Made To Succeed

“…For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” [Joshua 1:8b The Message]
To SUCCEED… the word has become synonymous with property, power, position and pensions…empty goals when they are ends in themselves. Goals in colorful wrappings, illusions that shift and shape according to the power of man’s control and the whims of the world.
So what is the goal and where do we find this success that comes intricately woven into the fabric of obedience to God and His Word. ”…don’t get off track, either left or right, so as to make sure you get to where you’re going. And don’t for a minute let this book of the revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it…” [Joshua 1:7-8 TM]
Living by the principles of God provides the power to prosper. Living according to the principles that have been governing both natural and spiritual laws—from the beginning—is wisdom. Wisdom is known by her results. “Wisdom is the principal thing…” [Proverbs 4:7] This wisdom is knowledge that is applied in present circumstances in such a way it changes the shape of how we live. The ‘ancient word’ becomes a living and vibrant principle of life with the power to change things—first and foremost the hearts of man.
Success is not the shape or size of the goal—success is the shape and signature of life lived by values grown from Godly principles—the primary root of godly principles will bring forth the fruit of success and prosperity—if the goal is Godly…. God will not fail!
