The Variables of Success and Prosperity (Part 3)
Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.
– Joshua 1:7
Success experts and motivational speakers have also told us that success is a function of location. Perhaps, this is true, but that is to the extent that such location refers to an intangible one, as against a physical environment. Because in the passage above, God tells us that He will prosper whoever observes His laws and strictly adheres to them, anywhere such person is!
That tells us that God-given prosperity is not a function of place, but a consequence of unflinching commitment to the word of God. Perhaps, this can be a turnaround for the millions of people who desire to leave their country of origin in search of greener pastures in another country. Your prosperity is not determined by your physical environment, your prosperity is determined by your inclination to the word of God.
If you channel all the energy you devote to pursuing means to check out of your country to studying and applying the counsel of God, you would see a significant improvement in your bottom line. Now, that assurance is premised on nothing else but the integrity of the word of God alone.
It does not cost God anything to bless you. Oftentimes, we are the one restraining His hand by our half-hearted devotion to Him. He vouches that He will prosper whoever observes His law wherever he/she goes. This shows that the prosperity of such person will not be a function of his/her physical location, but as a result of his/her commitment to God’s word.
You will succeed in Jesus Name!
