God's Plan for Success #1

This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.” Joshua 1:8

People work really hard in their pursuit of a specific goal, but they don’t work hard enough when it comes to acquiring the wisdom of God. If you really want to get the wisdom of God, if you want your word to speak wisdom, if you want to make all the right move, and go all the right way you have to do more than showing up to church on Sunday. You are going to have to get into the word. You’re going to have to seek the word of God. You might have to cut down on your leisure time time. Put yourself on “training mode”. You have to be dedicated, unreasonably focus and determined. God created all things through His divine Word. He spoke, and all things came to existence, both the heavens and the earth, both spiritual creatures and material creation. This same Word, who is the eternal Son of the Father, is called the Wisdom of God. God created us with a longing for wisdom, the only problem is that we rely on our own ability as a result we continue to go in circle, fighting the same battle, the same sins and dealing with the same issues.

Would you like to see results? Do you want to experience success on a different dimension? You have to do whatever it takes to be completely filled with the Word of God. You have been trying the same old tricks for many years, why don’t you try something new? Let God takes the lead for a change. Find out what God wants you to do and refuse to be distracted by the devil. God has experience in child rearing. He’s been raising sons and daughters for thousands of years. He will not interfere unless you invite Him in; remember that He created you with free will; you have to give Him permission. God can do it without you, but He enables you to have fellowship with Him and teaches you to depend upon Him. Will you give Him the opportunity to make a success out of you? The choice is yours. Choose wisdom, choose God.

Praise the Lord!
