Good Success

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Joshua chapter 1:

7 Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.

8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

Has FATHER’S Divine Intent for us to walk in prosperity and success changed from when this Word was expressed to Joshua?  Not in the least.  The limiting factor to this area of blessing falls on our shoulders.  Many believers have developed a bias concerning prosperity and good success due to highly publicized abuses among TV evangelists.  Their abuse does not make FATHER’S Divine Intent of none effect.  Additionally, FATHER will deal with those who abuse HIS Word so we don’t need to concern ourselves with such abuses.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 8:

31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.

32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

To abide in The Word means to continually obey Jesus’ teachings and live in accordance with them and The Holy Spirit has empowered us to do so as we become sensitive to the leading of THE SPIRIT.  In John chapter 15, Jesus spoke:

7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

What is it that we should desire?  Will we ask for anything which would draw us away from FATHER’S Divine Intent for our lives?  No.  FATHER is interested in us producing good fruit which clearly glorifies HIM as a witness to those who observe our fruitfulness.  If we had nothing to offer the sinner, why would he repent?  Jesus also spoke:

1 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.

2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”

FATHER will prune or purge any branch (us) that is not producing an optimal harvest.  FATHER will expose our hearts thus allowing us to remove anything in our “soil” that keeps us from optimal fruit production.  This process takes time and we need to embrace what is revealed to us in this manner and respond by cleansing ourselves with The Word.  We should never defend an impurity found in us.  Jesus continued:

3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.

4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

Jesus’ Words are what cleanses us so we should focus on His Words to achieve a clean and pure heart.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 1:

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

As we fully embrace the Gospel of Christ, our faith grows into full maturity and this faith expects the anointing in us to manifest and produce good fruit which glorifies FATHER.  The Beloved Disciple wrote in 1 John chapter 2:

20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.

We don’t know all things in our mental state but we do know all things because of The Holy Spirit in us has provided the anointing to know all things in the Spirit.  Therefore, we will know the Truth and It will make us free.
