Do you want to me prosperous and successful?
Of course, you do!
Prosperous and successful. No one will reject that offer.
Having a prosperous and successful life is the dream of every human on the planet.
Money. Cars. Trips. A gazillion things to own
That may seem like a life of prosperity and successes.
But, I have to admit. That is not true prosperity.
Frankly, true prosperity and success the way God intended it to be can only be achieved by following God’s plan.
Here is why: Read Joshua 1:8 (New International Version)
“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.”
In the Message bible, the same verse is paraphrased this way:
“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. Then you’ll get where you’re going; then you’ll succeed.”
Think about it: Ponder. Meditate. Reflect. Memorize.
These are key words that will help you be successful in life.
But not just any self-help book or philosophy to contemplate. It should be the Word of God – The Bible.
That is why we encourage you today to memorize scripture.
You may say, “I don’t believe you.”
Well, you don’t have to believe me.
Believe in God’s Word.
God blesses those who obey His commands.
But how will we know if we do not read.
And how will we retain if we do not memorize.
So instead of wishful thinking, memorize the scriptures today.
Then, it will not depart from your mind and, thus, your mouth.
And you will live a prosperous and successful life.
