The Pathway To Success

Have you not known?

Have you not heard?

Some people are aware of it and are reaping the reward while others are still struggling to find it.

What is the secret to being successful?

Is there a pathway that leads to success?

In this world, success is often defined in terms of monetary gain. “The more money you have the better your life will be” is a statement that is not based on reality.

You can live a more fulfilling life on this earth without having a large bank account.

Research has shown that confidence and positive thinking can lead to great success.

“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” (Author unknown)

Attitude is visible in your body gestures, speech and even in the way you write. Sometimes your facial expressions and body gestures speak louder than words.

If you can train yourself to develop boldness and self-confidence in everything that you do or say then you are bound to achieve prosperity.

 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. (Proverb 18:21)

Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou? (Ecclesiastes 8:4)

The words that you speak over your life can lead to success or failure; victory or defeat; life or death.

Therefore, developing good communication skills and being able to speak eloquently and positively is another pathway to a successful life.

Your speech should always be with grace and seasoned with salt. (See Colossians 4:6)

If any man speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion forever and ever. Amen. (1 Peter 4: 11)

Acquiring a good education will also lead to a successful lifestyle.

Many are the pathways that lead to success, but the greatest path that you can ever take is the one that leads you on your knees.

Kneeling before the Lord is a special position to master.

This position signifies humility, reverence and worship. It is your prayer posture and your position in warfare.

It is a position of victory which guarantees success.

Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; He will come and save you. (Isaiah 35:3-4)

You will receive daily strength in your prayer position.

Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. (Isaiah 40: 28-29)

Your pathway to success begins on your knees before the Lord!

  1. Ultimately it’s not our faith itself that grants us success, but the object of our faith, the Lord Jesus Christ, who is victorious over death. In Him, we have the victory too, whatever life may throw at us. Telling myself I’m going to have a private jet doesn’t mean to say I necessarily will. But godliness with contentment is great gain 🙂

  2. Having a life lined up with the word of God is the most positive start. Joshua was told by God that the book of the law shall not depart from his mouth nut 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. This means we must apply the word of God. Being confident by applying faith is important to success. Our attitude can also indicate our character.

  3. Jesus has led me to be in the ministry and work I have today. If someone had asked me if I would have a ministry for refugees and immigrants 25 years ago when I was sick and dying, I would have thought they were crazy, but Jesus does wonderful things. 🙂

  4. My spouse recently decided we should start praying on our knees so our little one knows it is also a posture we can take in prayer. It is definitely a position of reverence. In the Yoruba culture, women go on their knees as a sign of deep honor for anyone standing before them.

  5. Amen. True success comes from accepting Jesus into our hearts, obeying His Word, and letting His Spirit guide us. Joshua 1:8 NIV, “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”

    I like how you mentioned communication. Nowadays most communication is electronic. So asking God for wisdom in our speech is important. It’s easy for us to mentally create a tone of voice when reading text, emails, comments etc. Many relationships have been ruined because of electronic communication. It’s a blessing but can quickly become a curse if not handled with godly wisdom. Thanks Beverley!

    • Hi Dawn, you shared a vital point about communication. Lack of communication has led to many failed marriage. I know for sure that it caused my failed marriage. This digital generation is facing a huge problem. They need our prayers and support. Thanks for the verse in Joshua. It is a great addition to this post. God bless you.
