God wants us to pray, walk, run and do things not like the people of this world. This is so because we are in this world, but we are not part of it. Heaven is the final destination of every child of God. The plan of success God almighty wants us to follow is summarized in the Book of Joshua 1:8.
As Christians, we know that satan can also give what God gives but they are counterfeits. When God gives you money and good health, it comes with peace of heart but when satan gives you what seems to give you apparent peace, he takes with his left hand what your life depends on. Prophet TB Joshua gave us three steps to having good success:
1) Keep the Word in your mouth. If the Word dominates your heart, it will dominate your mouth and when it dominates your mouth, it will influence your conduct and character and whatever you do will be permanent and have good success.
2) Meditate on God's Word day and night. Meditation in God's Word is a visit with God. Meditation is the process of thinking deep on what you have heard and read in the Bible. Without meditation, God's Word cannot become part of you. Meditation brings revelation. Once your hands and mouth are in one accord, then you begin to tap into God's blessings.
3) Doing what the Word says. Remember that our obedience to God's Word is the only proof of our faith in him. Don't forget that our faith in God's Word must be tested against facts and experiences, before it can be said to be genuine.
