And don’t for a minute let this Book of The Revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it. Then you’ll get where you’re going; then you’ll succeed. Joshua 1:8 (TM)
I remember memorizing this verse soon after I became a follower of Christ. It was a great cornerstone for my budding faith. I took it to heart and have made scripture central to my daily life. I never took "sucess" to mean material, worldly success. I’ve always trusted that it is pointing me to eternal, spiritual success in my relationship with God. I’m glad I did. That grounding in God’s Word has given me a never-ending ability to see my daily circumstances and relationships in light of God’s message.
