Success Is Only A Dream For Those Who Talk About It; Success Is A Reality To Those
Who Pursue It.
"This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in
it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in
it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success."
Joshua 1:8 (NKJV)
Intellectual Greeks, proud Romans, ancient Syrians, culturedEgyptians, fiery Arabs,
colorful Persians, and worldly Babyloniansoccupied half of Palestine on the eve
of Jesus' birth. The other halfwere Jews-a divine culture split into many rival,
often hostile sects.But from the beginning, Jesus lived and breathed success. Let
me remind you, however, success doesn't come because you're a nice person or because
you yearn for it. Success only comes because you achieve it. You earn success by
being willing to exchange your time and effort for what you desire.
Well-known author James Allen, says, "Achievement is the crown of effort." No significant
achievement in all of history ever came without paying a significant price. The
marked effort you are willing to exert ultimately determines your success. Fulfilling
your dreams and achieving your goals is your responsibility. God gave you the tools,
but you are the one who must build the house, which represents your life. What kind
of home would you like to have-large or small? It is your choice. You are the master
architect, the chief builder, and the eventual homeowner. Your life is the result
of your own construction. God supplied you with everything you need in order to
build a great life. The only requirement is that you must build it according to
His standards of success.
Father, I thank You that Your Word does not depart out of my mouth, but I meditate
on it day and night, and I do all I am commanded to do.
