Joshua 1 vs 8
8 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.
What is Success?
- Joshua 1 vs 8 contains the Biblical principles of success.
- The verse also differentiates between ‘success‘ and ‘good success’.
- ‘Success’ is making it in the eyes of the world. The common evidence of success in the secular world is having money, being in a high position, and being a Very Important Personality (VIP).
- Whereas ‘Good Success’ is first and foremost knowing you are created by God, you are on earth for a purpose, and you have a heavenly goal. It is accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour, serving Him, and allowing the spirit of God to direct your life, and trusting in Him to meet your needs.
- Success in the eyes of the world will give you a marriage. Good success based on the scriptures, will give you a marriage and a happy home
- Success in the eyes of the world will give you children. Good success based on scriptures, will give you godly children not vagabonds.
- Success in the eyes of the world will give you material possessions and temporal comfort. Success based on the bible give you peace and contentment for the much you have.
- Success in the eyes of the world will give you more than enough money to purchase the best medical insurance. Good success will give you good health, and healing that money can not buy.
- Success in the eyes of the Lord will give you money to reinforce your personal security against harm and sudden death. Good success will give you divine protection and long life.
- Success in the eyes of the world will give you women, pleasures of illicit sex, and the challenges of polygamous marriage. Good success will bring happiness and contentment with your sole and only wife.
- Success in the eyes of the world will fastly take you to the top of the ladder at an early age, but crash from the top of the ladder by noon. Good success will take you step by step in the race of life, with your life shinning brighter and brighter and brighter, until you reach the top.
- Success in the eyes of the world will bring you many friends, some of whom may lead you to idolatry. Good success will make the Holy Spirit your only true friend.
- Success in the eyes of the world will put the world under your feet, with the power to enjoy what you like, but eventually take you to hell. Good success will train your hands to overcome the battles of your life, eventually give you rest from your enemies, and take you to heaven

Joshua 25 vs 14
15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
