God wants every one of us to succeed. He delights greatly in the prosperity (all-round wellbeing) of His people.
Furthermore, He wants us to succeed in that which He has called us into.
Good success demands that we consciously walk in the full exploration of our God-given mandate…
(Remember: you’re here on an assignment!)
After the death of Moses, when the spiritual leadership baton had been passed on to Joshua, the Lord had to inspire him and charge him up for the task ahead of him.
We want to explore some of the instructions that the Lord gave to Joshua, the son of Nun (he was formerly referred to as the servant of Moses).
As we follow these instructions and apply them to our daily living, we receive grace to fulfil our God-given assignment.
In Joshua 1:8, the instructions are clearly spelt out as:
This implies that you cultivate a lifestyle of reading the Word of God and speaking the Word. ‘…it shall not depart from your mouth…’
You must develop a strong appetite for the Word of God (Psalm 1:2).
Having read the Word… Move on to the level of digesting the Word. Reflect upon what you have read. Think deeply upon it. If there is a portion you don’t understand, you can seek for Godly counsel.
Psalm 1:2; 119:99; 1 Timothy 4:15.
It means to notice, examine, or perceive something and register (document) it as being significant. This implies that you keep a mental note and proper documentation of the Word of God.
Gleanings from the altar must be well kept and properly documented as they will come in handy in the future.
Be a doer of the work! (James 1:22-25).
As you commit yourself to ‘doing’, you set the pace for prosperity in all your endeavours… Psalm 1:3.
Receive grace to be a committed doer (John 14:12).
Thereafter, you become responsible for making your ways prosperous. Through the revelation knowledge of God and the dimension of the Spirit, you proffer solutions to persisting problems… Psalm 1:3; Genesis 26:13; 30:25-43; 39:1-6.
After these things, you will have good success.
Good success suggests that every part of one’s life is in alignment with God’s will and purpose.
2 Timothy 4:1-8
