“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.” Joshua 1:8
In fact, never before in the history of the World has there been so many financially successful people.
But what does the Bible say about true success? There is a difference between Biblical success and ‘worldly’ success.
A multimillionaire I know, who built his fortune in the Construction Industry, says to this very day that what he really wanted in life was to be a winning ‘Rally Driver.’
God wants to give us our hearts-desire. And that can only come through Him.
True prosperity and success begins on the inside. It is knowing and applying God’s Word to our lives: to know who we are and what we have as sons and daughters of the Most High God. To know how to live in right standing with Him. And to know, and to do, right behaviour and right thinking.
Jesus’ life’s purpose was to destroy the works of the Devil – (1 John 3:8) and yet He had to grow in wisdom and understanding before He could take on the Devil and destroy him!
God does not want fleeting success, the kind to found in ‘worldly pursuits’. He wants the kind of success that lasts!
In my own life I once had the ‘trappings’ of success. I had money that comes with a thriving business. And yet I was not living in prosperity in the true sense of the word.
My success was built on my own efforts and to a large degree by being in the right place at the right time. But it could not last. It was built on ‘shifting sand’ My life was unstable without God’s Word guiding my life! In order to know true prosperity I had to be stripped right down to having virtually nothing – a man ‘a shadow of his former self!’ And yet it was in that place that I found the seeds to true prosperity.
The Bible teaches us how to live prosperously; and that is, by listening and doing His Word. His Word equips us to handle and prosper in every day situation. His Word teaches us how to treat others; and how to love ourselves as God first loved us! And how to deal wisely in giving and receiving.
God’s Word is the True currency of ‘Good Success’. It is the success that comes by living prosperously in our heart’s first – according to the Word of God – and then manifesting it on the outside, by faith.
