16 May Open Heaven
Memorise: This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. – Joshua 1:8
Read: James 2:22-25 (KJV)
Bible in One Year: 2 Samuel 16-18
I believe everyone desires all-round success but do we all know the condition required to get it?
“2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” – Psalm 1:2-3.
According to the text above, the condition for complete success is living by the book of the law – the word of God. This is why God ask Joshua to get acquainted with it (Joshua 1:8). Today, it is painful that many “children of God” have abused grace so much that the law of God does not matter to them anymore. This is a deception of the devil.
To succeed, you must be wise because foolishness leads to failure (Proverbs 14:24). If you would be wise, you must be Bible compliant (2 Timothy 3:16). There is no negotiation; God’s word is the surest way to all-round success. James 1:25 says “But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”
It was through the word of God in Malachi 3:10 that I discovered why my salary was not enough for me – I was not paying my tithe. It was the word of God that taught me to take care of my flock as a Pastor. For many years as the General Overseer I had to stay at the Headquarters, building the source before launching into other parts of the world. Even now, the word of God teaches me that it is not over until it is over. The secrets of all-round success are inexhaustible in the word of God.
Beloved, read, study, meditate, hear and live by the word of God and from now, you will begin to experience all-round success.
