Scripture reference: This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth; but you shall meditate therein day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success - Joshua 1:8
For to us was the gospel preached, as well as to them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it - Hebrews 4:2
God loves persistence. He loves consistent people with great faith in him. In Joshua 1:8, God demanded consistency from the Israelites. He commanded them to meditate on his word continuously every day and every night so that they would have good success. There is no better way for you to show that you are a disciple of Christ. If you cannot follow him every day, forget it; You are not a committed disciple. Lord Jesus himself said (in John 8:31) - ... If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed and also said (in John 5:17) - ... My Father works till now, and I work. Beloved, if God, your Father and Lord is a committed worker then you have no excuse. You must be committed. You must be consistent and you must have a focus that is unshaken.
Every day, pray to God, read the word, meditate on the word, confess the word and do the word. At work, in church, wherever you are - follow the direction and instruction of the word. Be a consistent doer of the word and you will have good success. It is real. I know what I am talking about. I have seen the effect of the principle in my life. The power of consistency can break the yoke of delay and stagnation. A student that sows good time into his studies would come out successful. A banker that sows good time practising banking would turn out to be a successful banker. A surgeon/Doctor that sows good time practising and learning medicine would turn out to be a successful doctor. If you are a consistent giver that gives with joy according to the word, You would reap your harvest.
Beloved, spend quality time following the word. In all your endeavours study and research to show yourself approved. Let your attitude be positive and persistent towards that work that God has given you and God will grant you good success. He will crown your efforts with success and add grace to your labour.
Beloved, something good is about to happen. If you believe, shout - hallelujah!!!!!!
Father GOD, give me the grace to follow your word diligently and faithfully and crown my efforts with good success. I pray with thanksgiving in Jesus name.
