“The keeper of the prison did not look into anything that was under Joseph’s authority, because the Lord was with him; and whatever he did, the Lord made it prosper.” – Genesis 39:23 NKJV
What would it be like if you knew that you could never fail? What will you do if you knew that you would surely succeed?
Is there a guarantee of success for everything that an individual will do? Some people believe in luck. Some others believe in trial and error. Some believe that you succeed in some and fail at the others. As children of God, is there a guarantee of success for us, or are we also subject to such philosophies and experiences?
I have looked at the word of God, and I am pleased to inform you that you can succeed in all you do! If Joseph succeeded in all he did then we too can succeed in all we do. Here’s the secret: the presence of the Lord. But you must learn to attract His presence. How? By doing the things that please Him.
Psalm 1:1-3 says, “How blessed is the one who does not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand in the pathway with sinners, or sit in the assembly of scoffers! Instead he finds pleasure in obeying the Lord’s commands; he meditates on his commands day and night. He is like a tree planted by flowing streams; it yields its fruit at the proper time, and its leaves never fall off. He succeeds in everything he attempts.”
You will succeed in all you do from today as you live a life pleasing to the Lord, in Jesus name.
