DAY 5 - God’s Word Points the Way to Success

Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
Joshua 1:8

It’s 
the 
same 
every 
weekend. 
Tens 
of 
thousands 
of 
people 
pack 
 convention 
centers 
and 
hotel 
ballrooms 
across 
the 
country 
to 
hear 
self- help 
gurus 
and 
financial 
experts 
speak 
on 
how 
to 
be 
successful. 
Most 
of 
 these 
events 
are 
slick 
and 
entertaining, 
with 
attendees 
caught 
up 
in 
the 
 possibility 
of 
“realizing 
their 
potential” 
or 
“seeing 
their 
dreams 
become 
 a 
reality.” 
And 
many 
of 
the 
people 
come 
away 
feeling 
motivated 
and 
 helped. 
But 
how 
much 
of 
the 
advice 
they 
hear 
really 
squares 
with 
what 
 God 
has 
said 
about 
how 
to 
succeed?

According 
to 
today’s 
verse, 
true 
success 
isn’t 
about 
making 
money, 
 positive 
thinking 
or 
getting 
people 
to 
do 
what 
you 
want. 
God 
defines 
 success 
as 
knowing 
and 
doing 
his 
Word. 
We 
achieve 
lasting 
glory 
when 
 our 
sole 
goal 
is 
to 
honor 
the 
Lord.

God’s Promise to Me
•If 
you 
study, 
meditate 
on 
and 
obey 
my 
Word, 
you 
will 
have 
success.

My Prayer to God
You 
have 
given 
me 
your 
Word, 
Lord. 
Thank 
you 
for 
revealing 
yourself 
 and 
for 
showing 
me 
the 
right 
and 
best 
way 
to 
live. 
True 
success 
 requires 
me 
to 
be 
immersed 
in 
and 
submitted 
to 
your 
truth. 
Give 
me 
the 
 discipline 
to 
study, 
the 
desire 
to 
meditate 
on 
and 
the 
courage 
to 
obey 
 the 
Scriptures.
