Continued from The Secret Door to Success by Florence Scovel Shinn:
The Bible is The Greatest Book of Success and Prosperity, yet only twice is the word success mentioned – both times in the Book of Joshua.
“Only be strong and very courageous to observe to do according to all the law which Moses, my servant, commanded thee: turn not from it to the right nor to the left, that thou mayest have good success whithersoever thou goest. This book of the law shall not depart from the mouth, but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do all that is written therein, for then shalt thou make thy way prosperous and thou shalt have good success. Turn not to the right nor to the left.”
The road to success is a straight and narrow path; it is a road of loving absorption, of undivided attention. You attract the things you give a great deal of thought to. So if you give a great deal of thought to lack, you attract lack, if you give a great deal of thought to injustice, you attract more injustice.
Joshua said, “And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout: and the people shall ascend up, every man straight before him.”
The inner meaning of this story, is the power of the word, your word which dissolves obstacles, and removes barriers. When the people shouted the walls fell down.”
“THE WALLS OF LACK AND DELAY NOW CRUMBLE AWAY AND I ENTER MY PROMISED LAND, UNDER GRACE AND IN PERFECT WAYS.”
Seek to discover your walls of Jericho and how they block your success. With your energy, words and actions tear down the walls and go forward to your Promised Land!
