The Secret of Success

openbible 940x320

Joshua 1:6-8 (NLT) 6  “Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them. 7  Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do. 8  Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.

1 Chronicles 22:11 (NLT) “Now, my son, may the LORD be with you and give you success as you follow his directions in building the Temple of the LORD your God.

Ezra 5:8 (NLT) “The king should know that we went to the construction site of the Temple of the great God in the province of Judah. It is being rebuilt with specially prepared stones, and timber is being laid in its walls. The work is going forward with great energy and success.

1 Kings 2:3 (NLT) Observe the requirements of the LORD your God, and follow all his ways. Keep the decrees, commands, regulations, and laws written in the Law of Moses so that you will be successful in all you do and wherever you go.

A great many people go through life in bondage to success. They are in mortal dread of failure. I do not have to succeed. I have only to be true to the highest I know—success or failure are in the hands of God. E. Stanley Jones (1884-1973) Draper's Book of Quotations for the Christian World.
